2016 Tempranillo Image

2016 Tempranillo

This Tempranillo is built to hold up to a bit of age with its high level of acidity.  It has aromatics of cut grass, sweet oak and vanilla. It’s flavors are of juicy red currants, fresh raspberries, and a bit of orange zest.  This wine is showing well now, but we expect the fresh fruit aromas and refreshing acidity to carry this wine for another 5-7 years.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Tempranillo is quite tart, but we may add a little sugar down the road. The flavor is of stewed cherries and strawberries. It is a very well balanced wine with a medium ruby red hue.
