2008 "Tempestuous" Tempranillo
The only non-Italian varietal we make, this grape captured our hearts. We call it our “Anytime Wine” because it goes with just about any meal. A soft press on this grape, to keep the tannins silky, plus a small addition of our estate Sangiovese completely changes the character of this wine. Subtle earthiness, unique bouquets flood the senses. Sometimes its blueberry and sometimes it’s something else. The Sangiovese brings the acidity necessary to brighten this anytime wine.
