Moonstone Cellars – a gem uncovered on the main street of Cambria during our Central Coast excursion.
As soon as my nose smelled the fruit and vanilla and pepper of this glass, I was transported back to that February day tasting this Tempranillo. I am typically a Tempranillo fan, but this one takes my “like” to a new level.
I WANT MORE! Whose idea was it to only bring home one bottle? Now the wine cellar is empty.
The winemakers notes:
Ebullient red berry, profuse plum, coriaceous quintessence dissolving river-like to molten vanilla, the “noble grape” of Spain enchants with a penchant for frivolous amusement. Mated with a paradisiacal pepper-and-pancetta Basque stew, this is sure to be the sensation of the soiree. Serve cool after decanting.
