I knew this Tempranillo was going to be amazing from the second I picked up it's leathery and cedar aromas. I've tried other really good Tempranillo from California but in my opinion, this one takes the prize!

One of the best wines I have had in the area. I had heard that the grapes are grown in Amagosa Valley and processed in Pahrump. The aroma brought me back to wonderful memories of campfires and good friends. The flavor is gripping with spices distinct to the area and an after taste as smooth as they come.

The first taste made my face go crazy with distortions, followed by a surprising awe. It leaves a wonderfully smooth, delightful after taste. Had this on my birthday with a prime rib dinner. This was the most unique tasting wine I have ever had. A taste of leather, slight hint of tobacco and earthy tastes. Will definitely buy more.
