2014 Cinder Tempranillo

2014 Cinder Tempranillo

89 points Medium ruby with purple undertones. Toasty oak leads with deep aromas of spiced plum and cherry pie following neatly behind. A well tuned wine with tannins, acid, and body all providing punctual counterpoints. Tart cherry makes its way into the mid-palate, and the finish proves satisfying. Think cabin in the winter woods with log fire cracklin’. (MW, February 2017) Price $29 Varietal: Tempranillo Region: Snake River Valley AVA, Idaho Alcohol: 14.1% Producer: Cinder

A no fuss, no frills wine. (MW, February 2017) Price $16 Varietal: Red Blend Region: Snake River Valley AVA Alcohol: 14.1% Producer: Cinder
