Matchbook Wine Company is a winery that I consider a friend of the blog. I've reviewed many of their wines and even dedicated a whole month to them in November of 2015. If you'd like to read more about them then check out my article A Brief History of Matchbook Wine Company.
Tinto Rey is their new brand that focuses on Spanish varietals and Spanish style wines. If you know about Matchbook or read that article than you know that they're based out of Dunnigan Hills, California, and obsessed with Spanish wine anyways so this is nothing strange from them. I already reviewed the 2015 Verdejo and this is their 2014 Super Tinto Red Blend. I freakin' love the label. Dueling Spaniards stabbing each other after hanging a dude is the best time ever.
The Super Tinto is 52% Tinta de Toro Tempranillo, 21% Tannat, 17% Petit Verdot and 10% Graciano. It was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel and saw aging in French and American barrels for 16 months. Only the best juice that came out was used for the Super Tinto; enough to make 750 cases. It has a 13.9% ABV.
