ON THE NOSE

Robust aromas of black fruit, savory jam, cherry pith and peppery spice with notes of vanilla, espresso and dried herbs.

ON THE PALATE

The flavors are concentrated and true-to-nose. This Tempranillo is rich and bold
with excellent tannin structure and a long finish full of spice.  

METHOD

Made using hand-picked and hand-sorted fruit from the foothills of the Blue
Mountains. We destemmed the berries into small bins for a 3 day cold soak, followed by 12 days of primary fermentation. The wine was sent to a combination of French and American oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and 18 months of aging. Just prior to bottling, we blended with a small percentage of Tempranillo from Numeral Mountain Vineyard, a beautiful site in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains that overlooks the majestic Columbia River in Entiat.
