Tasting Notes

The 2021 Tempranillo displays distinctive Rocks District influenced aromas with a core of ripe red fruits which dance elegantly along with savory notes of umami and soy underscored by a whisper of leather. Delicate floral notes of violet add a touch of finesse to the bouquet. The palate is a symphony of flavors, where dark fruit takes center stage amidst a backdrop of earthy nuances and spice. Layers of black cherry, plum, and dried figs intermingle seamlessly with notes of tobacco and oak, resulting in a palate of remarkable depth and complexity. The finish is persistent, with lingering impressions of ripe fruit and savory spice, leaving an indelible mark on the senses.

Drink 2024-2034.
