Lido Bay's Bitch Tongue Tempranillo 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Our grapes come from the Red Rock Vineyard of Calaveras County, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range just east of Stockton at about 3,500 feet in elevation. Deep volcanic mineral soils combined with warm days and cool nights contribute to the wine's character. Hand picked and cool fermented. Barrel aged in 20% new French oak.
