Kuyen's grapes are organically grown, which Espinoza believes gives his fruit a superior expression of terroir. The Kuyen blend is aged for one year in French oak barrels, then bottled and aged an additional six months in the cellar prior to release.
Blend: 57% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Carmenere, 2% Petit Verdot
"Youthful purple color. Spicy cherry, blackcurrant, licorice and pipe tobacco on the perfumed nose. Big and rich but juicy, offering lively dark berry flavors and notes of candied rose and bitter chocolate. Sappy and focused on the finish, firmed by dusty, fine-grained tannins and a kick of tangy acidity."
