The Silver Route Tempranillo/Syrah

The Silver Route (named after La Ruta Via de la Plata) is a very appealing red from the Extremadura region in western Spain. This frontier region is the size of Switzerland, yet has just a million inhabitants. It also has an abundance of cork trees, oaks, black Iberian pigs, and old vines, the age of which ensures intense, ripe, juicy wines. And that’s what you’ll enjoy here. Vibrant, strawberry rich Tempranillo, turbo charged with peppery, black, brambly Syrah, with that concentration only sun-baked, low yielding, old vines deliver. Lovely on its own, even better with barbecued kebabs or Spanish ham.
