A TEASER BY JORDAN FIORENTINI

I don’t think I can hold a candle to what Jeb said about this wine!  Here is his direct quote from his Latest Releases from Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo County:

“A total ‘Wow Wine!’, the 2014 Tempranillo is a huge, smoking good, rich and concentrated red that has loads of smoked earth, cedar, cured meat, blackcurrants, violets and licorice aromas and flavors. This smoky, rich, mineral-laced Tempranillo is a candidate for the top expression of the variety in the United States…and it has Full-bodied richness, beautifully concentrated, notable freshness and a great finish. I followed this bottle for three days, and it never showed a hint of oxidation, and I suspect it’s going to keep for two decades. However, if you have a bottle, drink it!” – Jeb Dunnuck
