2018 SRR, Red Wine, Sierra Foothills

Following in the footsteps of Las Californias, SRR is a Tempranillo/Graciano blend that’s got us all shook up.

If you’ve been following along, our love for Spanish Rioja is no secret and Tempranillo is something we just can’t quit. Full in body, with the perfect amount of tannin, and juicy red fruit flavors, Tempranillo is really fun to work with. Especially when paired with Graciano, another Spanish grape we use to add deep, dark color and beautiful aromatics.

So SRR? Shake Ridge Ranch, where we get our Tempranillo from. This world-famous vineyard in Amador County is about as legit as they come. Owned by famed viticulturist Anne Kraemer, this legendary vineyard sits 1,800 feet above sea level and soaks in cool air from the Sierras to extend the growing season, which helps our Tempranillo retain acidity and texture. SRR was aged for 16 months in neutral oak. This longer aging was done to soften the big, bold tannins that Tempranillo is known for. With a bit of time in barrel, the tannins are fully ripe and frame this wine beautifully. The bold fruit commands palate, with incredible layers and complexity – we're talking mixed berries, chocolate-covered coffee beans, vanilla, and nutmeg...want to try some yet?
