Winemaker's Tasting Notes

This fruit forward, less tannic and earlier maturing Tempranillo was delicious at bottling. The fruit sources include predominately our estate’s Fault Line Vineyards (85%) with the remaining 15% coming from McCorquodale and Delfino Vineyards.

The beautiful aromatics, focused fruit flavors and lingering finish will continue to improve over the next four to six years.
