Six Sigma Ranch Tempranillo Lake County 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Tempranillo, the "King of Spanish red grapes" is to Spain what Cabernet Sauvignon is to Bordeaux and Napa Valley wines. This wine is opaque purple in color and boasts charming black fruit flavors including sweet black cherries, blackberries and Mission figs. It is full-bodied and mouth-filling with excellent depth and rich, intense dark chocolate-covered candied orange Peel and spicy flavors of cinnamon, vanilla, licorice and mocha. This wine embodies elegance combined with power, dense, ripe tannins and a creamy texture. It can be appreciated now or cellared for many years.

(The vineyards are affectionately named for family members.) In between the two vineyards, you will pass our winery tucked off to the north side of the road.

At each end of Asbill valley, you can view vineyards - Michael's Vineyard near the front gate and Else's Vineyard across the valley floor from our tasting room. (The vineyards are affectionately named for family members.) In between the two vineyards, you will pass our winery tucked off to the north side of the road. From the tasting room, a narrow, winding mountain road leads another 2 miles up to Christian's, Marianne's, and Annette's Vineyards in the Diamond Mine, located on the gentle southeast slopes of an 1700-foot peak near the southeastern end of our property. We named this location the Diamond Mine because it has an abundance of "Lake County Diamonds," small volcanic pieces of quartz that litter the red volcanic soil and shimmer in the sunlight. A guided tour through the vineyards just begins to scratch the surface of all the ranch has to offer. You can see on the map that existing and future vineyards occupy only a small fraction of the ranch. Read less

Nicely made, but why the French oak? dark garnet in color. Fruit dominated by blackberries, figs, and coffee. Chewy tannins, and a real jolt of vanillin oak. None of the characteristic temp smokiness.
