What exactly does “Reserve” on a wine label mean? Answer: Nothing! Zip!! Zilch!!! In fact, I can imagine a certain Mr. Wonka saying, "Nothing! You get ZILCH! Now GOOD DAY SIR!"
Anyway... we’ve been holding this particular 100% Tempranillo in some pretty sweet barrels, and it would be SO tempting to just follow the crowd and call it a “Reserve”. But instead, we give you “Zilch” - which in our book, is actually quite the golden ticket.
Zilch in name, zizzles in taste! Zesty aromaz of strawberries, allspice and black pepper. (Zounds! No zinnia?) Zippy flavorz of blackberry, dark cherry, and provence spices make your mouth zing! Enjoy with zeppole or zabaione, in Zzyzx with a zaftig zoologist and a zany zombie flick. Zowie!
100% Tempranillo, from various local sources. Let me get back to you on that.
Food Pairing Notes
Spanish Rubbed Ribeye Steak. ‘Nuff Said….. OR, if that’s not enough said, try it with a Hamburger with grilled onions and a slice of Manchego. Heck, I'm having it tonight with a bowl of split pea soup.
