2009 Castro y Morgan La Palma “Tendal” Vina Tinto Ecologico, La Palma, Canary Islands, Spanish Red.
This wonderful red is made up of Prieto Picudo and Negramoll grapes grown on the Island of La Palma in the Canaries, one of Spain’s most exciting wine areas. This 2009 Tendal shows perfume, spice and mineral with crisp, but forward red fruit and great acid/tannin balance making it an ideal food wine and an exotic pleasure. The Tendal is a biodynamic and organic wine that captures purity of fruit and terroir with ripe flavors and hints of iodine and crushed stones that add interest. The nose starts with dried flowers, cranberry and red pepper spices before a medium weight palate of red berry, blueberry, cherry and plum while fresh acidity heightens the wine.
