Winemaker's Tasting Notes

For this 2007 vineyard designated wine we sourced Tempranillo from Delfino Vineyards in the Umpqua Valley.

The result is rich blackberry and bright fruit commingling with more complex aromas of violets, spicy cedar, and vanilla.

While ready to drink now, the wine has sufficient structure to improve over the next four years.
