Ferdinand Tempranillo 2016
notes from the producer:This 2016 Tempranillo is medium ruby in color; medium-bodied, dry and elegant. It smells of Tempranillo's characteristic wild red fruits and plum with a touch of underbrush. A savory wine with hints of smoke and leather it possesses a visceral stoniness inherent to its origins in the Sierra Foothils. Overall the wine is lively in the glass; subtle with a silky freshness and present but resolved tannin. 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.
