Tempranillo Estate 2008

Winemaker Notes

***Wine Club Selection*** Join our Wine Club today to order this wine.

The twelfth release of our flagship Tempranillo continues the tradition of quality and excellence expected from our estate’s terroir.

The penetrating color and compelling aromas allude to the intensity of flavors that follow. Rich black fruits, savory spice, and well defined tannins unfold on the palate in velvety layers that continue through the long finish.

This wine will improve for the next decade and offer a long plateau of maturity.
