The fabulous wines we featured:
2009 Napa Valley "Seven Brothers" Tempranillo
- Due to low production, this wine was not submitted for review
- Tempranillo is fantastic with grilled meats and vegetables or even pizza
Tasting Notes: This wine has a bright ruby color with heavy aromas of cranberry, blackberry, cinnamon, spice and toasted oak. The flavors of dried black fruit, toasted cedar and tobacco mingle with great acidity and strong tannins to produce a long, rich finish.
2008 Lake County "Seven Brothers" Sauvignon Blanc
- Bronze Medal, 2011 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
- Pairs well with ahi tuna, oysters, ceviche and light salads
Tasting Notes: Aromas of honeysuckle and mango waft from your glass of this yummy Sauvignon Blanc. On the palate, green tea, citrus and lemongrass make this white a rich and complex.
We've been producing our Napa Tempranillo since 2008. We decided to make it because it's one of the varietals that grows in Spain and goes back to our Spanish roots. Lake County's best Sauvignon Blanc grapes are planted at elevations from 1,300 to 1,800 feet, which makes possible the kind of crisp acidity desirable in the varietal.
