Winemaker Notes

The wine is lush and supple on the palate with ripe tart cherry fruit framed by smoky, toasty oak with pretty hints of cinnamon, hard spice and a rich cocoa on a bright, lingering finish.

TP 91
Tasting Panel
The Spanish varietal spinoff project from Qupe. Lively, tangy acid structure; crisp, pure and showing bright style and fresh fruit. Biodynamic.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Louisa Lindquist produces this almost Pinot Noir-like Tempranillo from her cool climate site in the southern Edna Valley. It leads with red cherry and rust scents and shows more red cherry, iron and baking spice flavors on the palate, leaving a delicate and refreshing impression laced with rocky minerality.
WW 90
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
With its invitation to Old World flavors, the classic 2014 Verdad Tempranillo, from the Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard, does an excellent job in defining the characteristics of this grape variety. This wine exhibits black fruit, savory earth, and attractive rusticity. (Tasted: August 22, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Verdad Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard Winery Image
Verdad is devoted to making Spanish grape varietal wines that express true varietal character as well as the vineyard’s terroir. The grapes are sourced from organic and biodynamic vineyards and are minimally processed in the cellar. The philosophy behind the winemaking is to grow the best fruit possible, pick at optimum balance and let the wines reflect what the vineyards have created.

The first vintage for Verdad was 2000. Verdad makes a dry Grenache based Rosé, a Santa Ynez Valley Albariño and Tempranillo as well as a Demeter certified biodynamic Albariño and Tempranillo from the Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard. The total production is about 2000 cases.

California’s coolest wine growing area, Edna Valley excels in the production of high quality Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Rhône Blends and aromatic white wines. It has a cool Mediterranean climate and an incredibly long growing season, giving late-ripening varieties plenty of opportunity to develop great phenolic complexity.

Its northwest to southeast orientation creates a direct path for cool Pacific air and fog to penetrate the valley from the Los Osos and Morro Bay area inwards. Low hillsides of both calcareous and volcanic soils are home to much of the vineyard acreage of the Edna Valley.

Notoriously food-friendly, long-lasting and Spain’s most widely planted grape, Tempranillo is the star variety of red wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The Rioja terms Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva indicate both barrel and bottle time before release. Traditionally blended in Rioja with Garnacha, plus a bit of Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano, the Tempranillo in Ribera del Duero typically stands alone. Somm Secret—Tempranillo claims many different names depending on location. In Penedès, it is called Ull de Llebre and in Valdepeñas, goes by Cencibel. Known as Tinta Roriz in Portugal, Tempranillo plays an important role in Port wine.
