2016 Reserve Tempranillo


"When it all comes together, we find within a few special barrels the perfect snapshot of a vintage and the essence of a grape. From the Emerald Slope Vineyard comes this expression of Tempranillo and the profound results that occur when it meets the midday heat and the evening breeze of this arid land. You'll find the intense characteristics that are forged in the sunlight— fruit, spice, leather and structure— are tamed in the bottle and will mature over the years." 

-Melanie Krause, Winemaker

Tasting notes

The extra year aging in the bottle has made the flavors and aromas more integrated. See if you can tease out a soy note along with dark and warm hints of espresso and earth. The older it gets, the more beautiful it becomes and the harder the wine is to describe! 

Production notes

Hand harvested. Fermented in 1 ton bins with 3 punch-downs per day. Bladder pressed after an average 7 days of skin contact. Malolactic fermentation in barrel. 20 months of barrel aging in barrels of French, Hungarian, and American origin; 40% new and 2nd year barrels, 60% neutral barrels. Filtered and bottled in June, 2017.

OTHER NOTES

We suggest pairing this wine with beef tartar, filet mignon, Wagyu beef, or slow-roasted pork shoulder.
