Production Notes

Tempranillo is a varietal indigenous to Spain, and its name is derived from the Spanish word temprano, meaning early, a reference to the fact that Tempranillo often ripens weeks before its other red grape counterparts. The 2018 Tempranillo has aromas of wet stone, sandalwood, and a hint of pine. The palate is bright in fruit, with red currants, blackberry pie, and structured tannins. This wine ages particularly well and will be best in 2023.

Pair with roasted beef, truffles, and hearty stews.
