(2011 Vintage) Our interest in Tempranillo began during a family vacation to the Rioja and Ribero del Duero wine regions of Spain. This is the most widely planted varietal in Spain and is the core of its finest wines. Clover Creek Vineyard in Santa Ynez is proving to be an ideal site for this varietal. The fruit from this vineyard produces a big, rich wine, packed with flavor and moderate tannins. Like many of the Spanish wines, our Tempranillo is aged in 100% American oak barrels.
