2018 Tempranillo- We targeted these grapes for a for a more elegant expression of Tempranillo with fine tannins to pair well with food. We picked the fruit on the early side, fermented in a wooden tank at cooler temperatures to draw out a broad range of aromatics. After aging in french oak for 16 months, we chose 2 new barrels and two neutral barrels that we felt best captured the essence of this wine.
2019 Dolcetto- This wine has a lovely ruby color with brick red edges. On the nose find aromas of black plum, raspberry, rich ripe peach, violets, almond and a hint of mint. On the palate find soft round flavors of red plum, ripe blueberries, peach, almond and blackberry complemented by a rich mouthfeel and pleasant acidity. The finish is soft, heady and intriguing with notes of red fruits, black fruits and dash of cinnamon.
2019 Mourvedre- A beautiful day bright, brick red coloration, yet not opaque, offering invigorating aromas of rose petal, jammy black fruit, baking spice and crushed lava rock. Rich mouthwarming flavors of black plum and black cherry are backed by notes of spicy black pepper. The spiciness continues on the finish though the rich fruit flavors of ripe raspberry, strawberry and bright cranberry are what linger on the palate and bring finesse to the tannic structure of this wine.
