Subtle yet complex nose of dark fruits, leather and smoke… gentle and balanced mouthfeel with tannins that deliver touches of anise… medium plus body, long finish.
Tempranillo originated millennia ago in Spain and is generally considered one of the world-class red-wine grapes. Often described as the “signature grape of Spain,” Tempranillo can produce several styles of wine. In weight and structure, it can vary from a light, easy drinking strawberry flavored wine to a dark, sturdy, and tannic red that will age for half a lifetime. For this wine, we sourced ultra-high quality fruit from a single vineyard in Paso Robles and focused on color and tannin extraction during fermentation. We then aged the wine in 50% new oak for two years in order to deliver a denser style wine.
