Dominio de Eguren Protocolo Tinto 2016
Made of 100% Tempranillo and aged for three months in 1-3 year old American oak barrels, this is a great little Spanish red for lighter fare or for making delicious red Sangria. Aromas of red roses, red cherries, blackberry, spices and vanilla lead to smooth, dry yet juicy fruit flavors in the mouth. We have carried this wine for over 15 years, and it is always reliable and delicious. The grapes come from vineyards that are 2,700 ft. in elevation with clay-limestone soils which we found out are for all intensive purposes farmed in an organic manner. The winery does not seek organic certification because it would be too devastating to lose an entire crop for one tiny section of treatment.
