2018 Tempranillo, Home Ranch
Cigar Box & Spice
An elegant and complex wine showcasing plum essence, floral violet and earthy aromas with rustic notes of cigar box and spice. Rich texture and supple tannins allow this wine to coat the palate while retaining a bit of minerality for an age-worthy finish.
Gold, 2021 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition | Silver, 2021 Sunset Wine Competition
The 2018 vintage played out like a dream for winemakers. Moderate temperatures through spring and summer brought about a slightly later harvest that was prolonged, with cooler temperatures during ripening. This allowed grapes to mature more slowly, yielding wines with more depth, flavor concentration and supple texture.
