Quinta Cruz Reserve San Antonio Valley Pierce Ranch Vineyards Tempranillo 2012
This Reserve Tempranillo is a special bottling by Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyards. Proprietor/Winemaker Jeff Emery's dedication to Iberian varietals has inspired this special bottle that is not available anywhere else except at the winery. This special Reserve bottling represents what happens when you set aside the most complex and interesting barrels of Tempranillo, then add some Grenache and Graciano. It is a similar blend to what is found in the great Riojas of Spain. Jeff tasted through every barrel of Tempranillo from this vintage and found the ones that had the most depth and complexity. To this they added the Grenache and Graciano to add more depth and complexity.
Blend: 75% Tempranillo, 13% Grenache, 12% Graciano
