About the wine grape variety, Tempranillo: Tempranillo is often referred to as the “Cabernet” of Spain due to its structure and #1 status  as the backbone of Spanish reds. It is actually the fourth most planted wine grape in the world. When young it is fresh and fruity, however with oak and age it shows serious mature qualities that make it a collector’s item in particular the Gran Reserva 5 year aged wines.  Tempranillo is also fondly known by many names such as Ull de Llebre “Eye of the Hare”, Cencibel, Valdepenas and Tinta del Pais. Taste Tempranillo and you will taste the heart and soul of Spain.
