Domestic versions of Spain’s premiere grape variety have had a fairly low profile Stateside, but thanks to Tejada, that’s changing. In recent years, the winery’s red blends have gotten nods from Wine Enthusiast’s Steve Heimoff and Jon Bonné (Top 100 Wines 2008, San Francisco Chronicle). And the fact that the Tejada family, which hails from northern Spain chose this site for their vineyard means the variety won’t stay under the radar here for too much longer. The 2006, made by Winemaker Emmanuel Kemiji (Miura, B. Kosuge), is a mix of Tempranillo and Grenache from the Tejada’s small organically farmed vineyard just north of Napa. Loaded with rich, concentrated red berry flavors, baking spice, earthy notes, this has an almost chewy texture. The blend is 50/50 Grenache and Tempranillo, with Grenache contributing intense fruit, spice, and softer tannins. It’s not often our Tasting Panel is in full agreement, but this time it’s unanimous: this is drinking great right now. A wine drinking like a Rioja Gran Reserva at a fraction of the price; we love it! **A 21+ year old adult must be present to receive the delivery at the scheduled time and address and provide picture ID as proof of age** Items are sold by Invino which is the seller of record - all taxes and shipping fees are collected on its behalf.

I never got to try this wine! The cork disintegrated while trying to uncork it. I couldn't even get the whole cork out. What a waste. I would stay FAR away from this wine until the problem is fixed.

I know that you guys are in the business of making money but $26 for a bad bottle of wine is just unfair

The damn cork breaks into a million pieces into the wine and will the duck serves chilled pinot noir?!!!!!! I want my money back. I'll send the entire bottle back; it's aggravating.
