2014 Ferdinand Tempranillo

2014 Ferdinand Tempranillo

$ 30.00

This 2014 Tempranillo is a savory wine with suggestions of smoke and leather. It possesses a visceral stoniness inherent to its origins in the Sierra Foothils. Located near the gold rush town of Sutter Creek, at an altitude around 1750’, this rocky vineyard is made up of ancient, red volcanic soils full of chunks of quartz. This ideal location balances easy ripening hot summer days and cool nights from the high elevation mimicking conditions in Spain's Ribera del Duero, the source of the vines' budwood.
