Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
We’ve been working with Todd & Kelly Bostock’s beautiful Tempranillo for the past nine years now, and it has proven itself to make a consistently excellent wine with a spectacular balance of power and finesse. While most of this wine goes into blends every year (mostly Earth Cuckoo and Willy), we hold the best three (or four this year!) barrels for extended aging and single-varietal bottling. This wine is always a big hit in the tasting room and a reliable old friend in the cellar. Only 4 barrels produced.
