Winemaker Notes

*Wine Club Exclusive*

Opportunities to bottle small and unique wines come about in curious ways. For years we have observed how well Tempranillo and Malbec “play together” in experimental bottlings, but we never took the next step. Wanting to share this pleasure, we crafted this micro-bottling from 50% Tempranillo and 50% Malbec to highlight their combined aromas of blackberries, blueberries, dates, plums, and exotic perfume. Bold tannins, kind acidity, and integrated oak flavors create remarkable texture and a lengthy finish. Cellar a few years to allow further development or enjoy now with a food pairing such as spicy Mexican or Cajun.

Limited to three (3) bottles per Wine Club membership, while supplies last.
