Winemaker Notes

Combining 14 varietal wines in differing proportions to create a blend that is greater than the sum of its parts is both a challenge and a pleasure. After extensive trials we chose this blend because it optimizes not only the taste and mouth feel but elevates expressive aromatics of dark fruits, figs, and warm spices.
   
This Tempranillo and Syrah based blend is a well structured, moderately tannic wine. While excellent now, it will improve over the next three to five years.
