Esperanza 2011 Tempranillo

There is a compelling and profoundly sad story about the brothers Dos Pablos, the creators of this wine. Unfortunately, none of it is true - although it does make for a great (and very funny) read. Check out  Made by the team at Wirra Wirra in McLaren Vale, along with a partner monastrell, this wine is a flagbearer for the new Iberian-style wines the company hopes will shine in the Vale. It is a dark, earthy, spicy and complex wine with great tannin structure. Most enjoyable. $35.
