I’m drinking Kerloo Cellars 2009 Temperanillo! This is a bottle my boyfriend got for free (people love giving him free wine; I still haven’t learned his secret…maybe a code word I need to know?) Kerloo’s 2009 Temperanillo is sold out now, but they have a 2010 Temperanillo for sale, which I haven’t yet tried. Their Temperanillo isn’t crazy unreasonable in price, but maybe a little more than new drinkers are willing to spend. It will run you $34, which I think is a good value for this wine.
Well balanced earth and fruit, bright flavors, and not too spicy for a Temperanillo; this is a wine that goes well with food. It tasted even better the second day it was open! The grapes come from Wahluke Slope and Walla Walla.
Pair it with: Butternut Squash Risotto
