Earthy, Deep, and Alluring. When The Empress appears, dreams come to fruition. Embrace opportunity. Create with abundance. Connect with the sense of touch, taste, smell, and sight. When you tune in to the energy of The Empress, you surround yourself with the pleasures of life.
The Empress is a perfect combination of Tempranillo and Merlot grapes resulting in a dry, medium-bodied wine with hints of deep red fruit – plum and currant aromas. Heady spices, earth, and smoke linger with a moderately tannic finish. Tempranillo's thick skins can sometimes lead to wines with tough tannins. Blending it with Merlot is ideal as the latter can smooth out these rough edges, making a more approachable wine. Tempranillo Merlot wines are generally rich and concentrated with berry fruit flavors.
