The color is a pretty purple. The nose is cherry juice, blueberry fruit rollups, a little newly mown lawn and a bit of chocolate chip cookies cooking in the oven. This is a medium to full bodied wine with soft, smooth fruit. It starts with strong sweet black cherry (fresh fruit sweet, not sugar sweet) and raspberry tea over a foundation of Dove chocolate. The mid palate adds a touch of silky vanilla and a zap of tart tangerine. The tannins are fairly subdued, but the acidity is in solid supply and gives this wine some decent length. The main body of the finish fades quickly, but a faint echo keeps hanging on.
The Spanish Quarter Cabernet Tempranillo blend is a deep purple-red color with a nose of dark cherry and blackberry, and hints of exotic spice and chocolate. The full and silky palate reveals layers of juicy ripe berry fruit, dark chocolate, and a touch of sweet oak on the finish.
