Wine Thursday: Farina Spanish Sons Tempranillo
posted on October 5th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas
Intense in color, this red wine has aromas of red berries and balanced flavors of bright cherry, vanilla and violet. Spanish Sons features excellent structure and soft tannins that lead to a long, silky finish. This Tempranillo is sourced from family vineyard sites located in and around the historic city of Toro, on the high plateau of Castilla y León, in Northern Spain. Fruit from the famed Toro DO make up the majority of the blend and provide the ripe tannins, excellent structure and rich, dark fruit. The balance of the blend is sourced from Tierra del Vino de Zamora DO, which offers roundness to the tannins and bright red fruit notes. Approximately half of the fruit in Spanish Sons is sourced from historic bush vines in the Farina family vineyard that were planted 50 to 120 years ago. These vines yield complex fruit with soft, luscious tannins and an unmistakable expression of terroir that contribute to the deep, rich color of the wine.
