2010 Tempranillo
About This Wine:
Grace Vineyard, El Dorado County
328 cases produced
Tempranillo (pronounced tem-pra-NEE-yo) is the basis for Spain's world-renowned Rioja wines. Many of California's wine-growing regions are too hot for this fickle grape, but the Grace Vineyard, located at an elevation of 2,800 feet in the Sierra foothills, enjoys similar climatic conditions to those found in the Iberian Mountains of La Rioja - cooler temperatures to maintain acidity, but warm enough to develop the sugars required for full flavor development. This vintage was aged for 30-months in French oak (40% new barrels), taming the beast within and permitting its unique characteristics to shine through. Dense and inky, it exhibits dark cherry, dusty chocolate and leather notes, with a hint of sweetness to the aroma. The balanced acidity and dryness from the tannins will permit this medium-bodied wine to age for a further 8-10 years in the bottle. Have fun pairing it with zesty BBQ fare, paella, Manchego cheese or a variety of Spanish tapas. Que aproveche!
