This is the best California Tempranillo I have ever reviewed. Grown on the estate vineyard southeast of Napa that might have its own appellation someday, it's as silky and light as a Pinot Noir, and marked by the dryness and acidity you want in a Temp. Shows savory cherry, cola, tobacco, leather and spice flavors. But beyond that, there's a complexity and structure that bring a welcome dimension to the variety. One hundred percent new French oak is not out of place. Very elegant and compelling.
