Winemaker Jeremy Leffert Notes
We are extremely passionate about Spanish wines. Thus, "Chileano" was born. Our vision with "Chileano" was to create a Tempranillo stylistically similar to the great wines of the Ribera del Duero in central Spain. Our Tempranillo is driven by ripe cherry aromas with hints of mocha and strawberry. Tame acidity and varietal fruit flavors on the palate allow our "Chileano" to drink well out of the gates and for the next 2-4 years. Typically, Tempranillo in Paso Robles comes in with low acidity. The spanish, namely the great winemakers of the Ribera Del Duero, have historically been blending a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon with Tempranillo to naturally add acidity to wine during ageing. We have experimented with this and found th ...more... at it aids in the creation of lovely Tempranillo off our ranch. One that is expressive, red fruit driven, and with nice earthy tones.
