Our Tempranillo clone originates from Spain where it is the #1 wine grape. We built this wine after the traditional Rioja style. Worldwide, Tempranillo is the fourth most sold wine following Chardonnay, Cabernet and Merlot. It is well-known for its spicy, smoky and leathery flavors that age well. The grape’s popularity is growing quickly in the United States. Tempranillo is one of only a handful of grapes that has red juice. Most all red wine grapes have white juice and the flavor/pigment is derived from the skins. It also has an enzyme that naturally fights oxidation, which allows for long-term barrel aging.

This special release of our Tempranillo is of 2 barrels, one made of whole cluster fermented wine and the other free run wine.  It is an elegant yet powerful wine and we feel it exemplifies the very best of everything the Apetahi Vineyard offers!

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The body of our Tempranillo Reserve exhibits a beautiful dark crimson color that is almost opaque. Upon releasing the bouquet your nose captures dried Bing cherry and copious cola notes. A generous mouthfeel showcases fine, gravelly tannin's that will soften with time. The finish is long, harmonious and ethereal that completely satisfies your utmost desires and leaves wanting nothing more than a cigarette
