Tasting notes: Tempranillo is one of Southern Oregon's most distinctive varietals. This wine is 77 percent tempranillo, 12 percent syrah and 11 percent cabernet sauvignon. It has black cherry flavors and spice and floral scents wrapping a polished frame of firm tannins with a mineral, grilled plum and blackberry finish.
