Explorer Tempranillo

$27.50 /750ML

Wine Description

The third vintage using all estate Tempranillo fruit is one of only a very few cool-climate Tempranillos in the Chehalem Mountains.  This was another nearly ideal growing season that delivered exceptional fruit with larger than normal clusters.

Tasting Notes

The Explorer Tempranillo is a bold, blockbuster big red filled with cigar, pepper, and the tannins of grilling meat. The ideal wine for a cozy evening by a fire or a festive gathering at a tapas restaurant.

“Fun and spicy with dark-berry and coffee character. Full-bodied and slightly chewy with a flavorful finish. Some real tempranillo character here. Sustainable. Drink now. Glass stopper.”
