Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The same alluring Tempranillo from the 2012 Bigness accented with the tannin and acidity of Tannat from the same vineyard. The Bigness is an instant crowd favorite and a great canvas to showcase the terroir of the Sulphur Springs Valley in Southeastern AZ. A soft, dark wine with warm spice and pleasant richness. Only 3 barrels produced.
Vineyard Notes
67% Tempranillo and 33% Tannat Cochise County Arizona from Dragoon Mountain Vineyard at 4,300 Ft. elevation.
