“Tempranillo has found a perfect second home in the hot, dry, high-elevation vineyards of the Snake River Valley. My version of this Spanish classic is a bold and spicy wine. An ideal wine for sipping while you share life and laughter with friends. Here’s to the grape that thrives in the desert and to its new American roots."

-Melanie Krause, Winemaker

Vineyard Notes

Emerald Slopes & Sawtooth
 
Tasting notes

The aromas have warm, sweet notes such as cherry and vanilla-spiced applewood. The flavors include a hint of olive with a touch of huckleberry and plum. In the mouth, the wine is rich and textured and it finishes with lively acid and tannins.

Production notes

Hand harvested. Fermented in 1 ton bins with 3 punch-downs per day. 10% of batches done in extended maceration style. 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. 16% new, 84% neautral oak. Bottled in June 2018.

Other notes

We love this wine with roasted meats – frankly, anything you cook over an open flame will pair really well with this Tempranillo. Think roasted goat leg with manchego and black olives or morel mushroom risotto.

When to drink: During the first several years, decant for an hour & then enjoy. This wine will continue to evolve beatifully over the next 5-25 years.
