Double Gold Medal

~ San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition 2016

Tempranillo is one of Spain’s main varietals, and of increasing interest in California, though there are still only a thousand or so acres planted to it in the entire state. This is Amphora’s third vintage of Tempranillo from the Heringer vineyard, and we love the character it consistently shows: aromas of raspberry liqueur, toasted graham cracker, and a hint of fennel greet you in a glass of this Tempranillo. Raspberry and savory flavors follow the nose, and the wine is lively and juicy, with the slightest hint of a loamy bitterness on the finish which is a perfect contrast to the fruit, and a good indicator of a wine best appreciated with food (but aren’t they all?).
