Tasting Notes

Made by the family-run Dominio de Punctum winery located in Las Pedroñeras, an area in central La Mancha, this cool, balanced Tempranillo is wonderful for everyday quaffing. Cherry vanilla fruit opens on a friendly palate, brushed with herbs. Lovely for pork, paella with rabbit, and earthy stews. The vines benefit from a high elevation--750 meters above sea level, which provide surprisingly giving cool temperatures, given that La Mancha is known for its warmth. A phenomenal, dry red wine made from the Tempranillo grape.

In Rioja, Navarra, and the Ribera del Duero (which have the...
