Have I mentioned before how much I love the wines from Coral Mustang? I think I have, ;) , but just in case, I’ll say it again…I love these wines!!! The Rose is amazing and the Tempranillo is divine. Tonight I chose the 2004 Coral Mustang Tempranillo to sip with my lamb and mashed taters. It had a real cork closure, clocked in at 14.5% alcohol by volume, and I believe it cost me $22 from WineQ, but they are sold out, so I can’t be sure.
I first noted how dark the wine appeared in the glass. On the nose I found berries, spice, wood, earth, black cherry, vanilla, and pie. In my notes, I described the nose as “yummy.” The wine tasted fabulous. I almost didn’t want to take notes because I got so wrapped up in drinking the wine! I got flavors of blackberries, black cherries, black plums, spice, earth, herbs, smoky notes, and almost a hint of raspberries. The fruit tasted like it just got picked off a bush and crushed into my glass. This is a wine you would remiss to not have a chance to taste….the 2005 is wonderful too!
