Tempranillo is an ancient vine from the Iberian Penisula that grows to perfection in California. True to varietal, this wine has a beautiful burgundy color and is spicy with dark fruit and rich tobacco. Grown in calcareous clay soil in West Paso Robles, the unique location adds a wonderful mineral aspect to our Tempranillo. This is a truly unique and limited wine.
This Tempranillo is dedicated to Nicholas who was born in 1995 and turned 21 this year 2016. Niko as we fondly call him is my dear friend Gina’s son who was diagnosed at an early age with autism. A percentage of the proceeds from this vintage will go to the Autism Society in the Philippines to increase awareness of autism.
