Tempranillo from California? Yes, that's right. Farmed organically in the Los Olivos area of Santa Barbara, this wine shows the dark plum, mocha, and spice notes that put Tempranillo on the map.


Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is comprised of Tempranillo, yrah and Grenache grapes. The Tempranillo was farmed organically at Ibarra-Young Vineyard in Los Olivos. The Grenache was farmed biodynamically at Purisima Mountain Vineyard in Los Olivos and the Syrah is from the Bien Nacido Vineyard. Tempranillo makes a bold, earthy, somewhat tannic wine with lots of chocolate and spice. It is blended with the silky, supple, ripe syrah from Bien Nacido Vineyard, possibly the best vineyard for Syrah in California, which adds a lovely lush middle along with ripe berry flavors and pepper. The superb, more feminine Grenache adds gorgeous wild berry aromatics and brightens the whole blend. The wine has ripe cherry and berry aromas with layers of black cherry, cocoa and spicy-smoky flavors with a touch of cinnamon and toast. This is a full-bodied wine with rich flavors and good balance and a long satisfying finish.
