Tempranillo 2014 Barrel Select

Tempranillo 2014 Barrel Select

Winemaker Notes

Our flagship Tempranillo continues the tradition of quality and excellence through careful selection of the finest barrels. Rich blackberry, violets, mocha, spice box, smoke and well defined tannins unfold in velvety layers through the lengthy finish. While delicious now, this wine has the structure to improve for 10 or more years and offers a long plateau of maturity.
