Solaz from Bodegas Osborne
Wine ReviewThe 2006 Solaz Cab-Tempranillo wine from the Bodegas Osborne winery is a wine with lots of tannins, having been aged in oak for four months.
Osborne is probably Spain’s most prestigious producer of wines and spirits. Their head office is in El Puerto de Santa MarÃa, Spain. This is also a famous brandy and sherry-producing region.
Osborne produces not only fine wines but world renowned brandy, sherry, port, and anise liqueur. The winery was founded in 1772, making Osborne one of the oldest wine and spirit producers in Spain.
The Solaz is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Spain's indigenous Tempranillo grape. The Tempranillo grape is a black grape that makes really full bodied wines and is the main grape in Rioja wines.
Like I said this wine is not for the faint at heart, it should definitely be decanted and let it open up for an hour or so. Goes great with Spaghetti and meat sauce.
This wine retails under $15.00 and is a great wine. Serve at room temperature 18-20°C
