"As I have said for several years now, my nominee for best domestic Tempranillo is Baron’s Impulsivo. The 2007 Tempranillo Impulsivo En Chamberlin Vineyard is a dense, brooding effort with intense mineral notes, road tar, espresso, layered black fruits, and an exotic perfume in combination with a Lauren Bacall-like sensuality. Impeccably balanced and long, it should evolve for 8-10 years and offer pleasure through 2026. "
The Wine Advocate
"Good deep ruby. Complex, slightly reduced nose offers black cherry, smoked meat, minerals and dark chocolate. Then broad and sweet on the palate, with subtle, wild flavors of blueberry, cherry, smoke, rose and gunflint. Offers a very suave mouthfeel and finishes with a fine dusting of tannins. The most intriguing tempranillo to date from Cayuse."
