Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Plan on showing patience with this beast! Deeply textured with black fruit and aggressive tannins, it has considerable richness and depth. In three short years this wine has been critically placed amongst the top wines of the Tempranillo world. Aged in roughly 90% new French Oak, this beauty will need about 2 to 3 years before the tannins mellow and it begins to open up. It will be worth the wait.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Tempranillo is impressive. Dark red fruit, flowers and spices come to life in this rich, textured red. The aromas and flavors caress the palate with considerable richness and depth. The finish is long and striking for its purity. The Tempranillo was aged in 80% new barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021."
93 Points

"Deep ruby. Candied cherry, flowers, woodsmoke and cured tobacco on the assertively perfumed nose. Deep, broad and velvety, with impressive depth and sweetness to its cherry and cassis flavors. Picks up spiciness and notes of vanilla and bitter chocolate with air and finishes with excellent clarity and lingering spiciness. I like this wine's balance."
91 Points

"Lovely chocolate, berry and spice with hints of toasted oak. Full and velvety tannins. Beautiful finish. So right now but will improve."
