DESCRIPTION:

Why run from the bull when you can embrace it, cherish it, enjoy it? Bold Bull Tempranillo is a full-bodied red wine from Spain with distinctive spicy characteristics and plush fruit, grown in the dusty plains of La Mancha, in Northern Spain. This region is well known for its’ bullfighting culture and long tradition of growing high-quality red wine. For a great Matador, courage and timing is key, and these principles extend to growing Tempranillo as well.

 

It takes a brave soul to tend to the vines, under the hot Spanish sun. Fortunately, our winegrowers have mastered this time-honored tradition, and the result of their labor is an alluring, rich and spicy Tempranillo. Have a glass or two of this hearty red and get in the ring, Olé!
 

BOLD BULL -
A NECESSARY INDULGENCE:

Viticulture has always been present in La Mancha, and the grapes are well suited to this extreme landscape, sending their roots deep down into the ground in an ever-present search for water. The grapes produced are small and the clusters tight, with an incredible skin-to-juice ratio. The wines produced from this rugged fruit are correspondingly intense, concentrated and richly extracted, with dark color and savory aromas.

 

The arid plains of Northern Spain are home to a hardscrabble folk, tan and hardy, acclimated to the hot, dry climate and tough as nails. Much of the food eaten here is of the preserved variety, and some of the greatest charcuterie on planet earth finds its home here. Here life is centered on sustenance, and wine is drunk as a thirst quencher in place of hard-to-come-by water. Transport yourself to this land of festivals, of siestas and of starry, quiet nights with a glass of Bold Bull Tempranillo.
