2 X Obsession Tempranillo 2013

This Tempranillo takes on a style similar to the wines from Ribera del Duero. Cherry and plum are the hallmarks of this wine, with hints of leather contributing complexity. It is medium-bodied and has been made with minimal handling to express the true terroir of the Tumbarumba region.
