d'Arenberg 2009 The Sticks and Stones Tempranillo Blend

Pre-Christmas special extended while stocks last.
We have a Blog Label "Red wines with a difference" - it could have been created for this one!
This is a four variety mix of Tempranillo, Grenache, Tinta Cao and Souzao and I suspect most of you have never heard of, let alone tasted, the last two varieties.
Once again it's a master class in winemaker's blending skills to create a red that was good enough to win GOLD at the 2012 HOUSTON Livestock International Wine Show.
I kid you not, two obscure grape varieties and the best wine show name I've heard since Wolf Blass was winning gold in Ljubljana. This would be the wine to win any Options game.

Cellar Door $29
Our Price: $23 per bottle by the dozen
