Epoch Tempranillo 2008
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
he 2008 Tempranillo is our second vintage of this exciting and very different variety; we produced a small quantity in 2007. We harvested in several different picks to select only the fruit with the softest and ripest tannins. The warm growing season of 2008 allowed our Tempranillo's tannins to achieve high levels of ripeness and suppleness, creating a wine that's enjoyable young but sure to age for several years. Aromas are both savory and sweet - smoked meat, tobacco, brown sugar spices, red plum and leather - echoed by a rich, broad palate whose flavors mirror its aromas. Firm with structure but yet surprisingly soft for a Tempranillo, this wine is sure to strike you as deliciously different! Drink now or with 5-10 years cellar age.
Undeniably smoky and woody, this nonetheless delivers a firm, rich, intense, focused beam of dark berries and tobacco that weaves in melted red and black licorice, giving this a distinctive, potent flavor profile. Drink now through 2021. 322 cases made.
