Food Pairings for Bokisch Vineyards Tempranillo Lodi
Our 2011 Tempranillo is a blend of two vineyards and two soil types which enhances the complexity of this wine. The Las Cerezas vineyard is our “motherblock” which is planted on silty loam and the Liberty Oaks vineyard is planted on volcanic clay loam. Both vineyards and soil types add different nuances to the wine. Notes of cedar, maraschino cherries, white pepper and licorice entice the nose. It is silky in the mouth with flavors of blueberry jam, plum tart, blackberries and brownies topped with fresh raspberries. It has approachable tannins with a long finish and a full middle palate. This wine will continue to age beautifully especially as it has been blended with a small percentage of our Graciano following along the tradition in the Rioja.
