More about this wine from Ribera del Guardiana, Spain
Every winery produces an array of wines from entry-level on up to the top notch of that year's harvest. The Ensamblaje is a blend of the best of the best Syrah, Tempranillo, and Garnacha grapes of the harvest. We're lucky to have some serious eyes on the ground in Spain to hunt out these opportunities to snag top quality juice at an awesome price point.

The juice is dark ruby red and the bold fruit is balanced by the acidity. The nose is fruit forward with cherry, blackberry, and ripe plums. As you sip you'll first find all this lush fruit, but this vino gets more complex as it lingers with notes of tobacco, dark chocolate, and licorice. Kinda like hitting the farmer's market for fresh produce with your favorite leather-donned, tobacco-chewing cowboy.
How to drink it

While...

Sneaking a little sip of vino at the office as the clock slowly makes its way to 5 PM on a Friday with Catahoula Man by the Generationals filling your cubicle.

Eating...

A big jammy, full-bodied wine calls for some meat, but skip the cliche steak and find a deluxe cut of tuna and whip up a yummy soy sauce. Tuna has enough heft to hold up to a bold wine.
