The Verdad 2016 Tempranillo comes from the cool-climate Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard in Edna Valley on California’s Central Coast.

Pretty, well-balanced, and silky, this wine is a rare example of a cool, coastal climate Tempranillo. On the nose, bright aromas of plum complement the flavors of cherries, plums and blackberries on the silky smooth palate, with hints of hard spice, cocoa and toasted oak coming through on the finish. Aged 20 months in oak. 91% Tempranillo, 9% Syrah. Enjoy!
