2017 Tinto - garnacha tinto, tempranillo, Graciano
"A Spanish inspired blend of Grenache (Granacha tinto), Tempranillo (Tempranillo) and for the first time Graciano makes a splash. A juicy little number that hopeful evokes the blue Mediterranean, paella and bullfighting
Spanish food with lots of tomatoes, seafood and stuff.
