EN GARDE TEMPRANILLO, EL DORADO SIERRA FOOTHILLS 2013
NVWE Notes: Impressively gutsy at opening yet increasingly elegant as it airs, this is a varietally accurate and very satisfying Tempranillo. The nose is textbook gutsy and well focused, with mulberry, purple plum, blueberry, vanilla, clove, sandalwood, cedar and milk chocolate moving toward a generous harmony. Zest and minerality firm the mouth-feel, but the tannins are polished, so the fruit shines through. Although youthful, that fruit is already complex, as plum, blueberry, black cherry, “red vines”, milk chocolate, rose petal, sandalwood, clove and a hint of tobacco sail through a bright, mineral-laced, lingering finish. Fine dinner wine already, it should be more so in another two years. 130 cases produced.
