    Winemaker's Notes:

    Tinto Rey means Red King. Tempranillo is the king of Spanish red wines and one of the most important varietals in our Matchbook Vineyard in the Dunnigan Hills. The Spanish varietals Tempranillo and Graciano contribute spicy red berry fruit flavors; Syrah adds rich flavors of black cherry and blueberry; the spicy cedar and tobacco notes are from the cool weather Cabernet Sauvignon; a touch of Petite Sirah pumps up the tannins, the rich color, and adds a little pepper spice.

    44% Tempranillo, 36% Syrah, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Graciano, 2% Petite Sirah

    Critical Acclaim:

    Another big-time winner is the 2007 Tinto Rey, a 6,900 case blend of 44% Tempranillo, 36% Syrah, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Graciano and Petite Sirah. Delicious and seductive, it boasts abundant notes of black currants, black cherries, licorice, forest floor and spice. Round, silky tannins, medium to full body and an excellent finish make for a heck of a proprietary blend the likes of which more California wineries should be producing. I understand the marketing significance of single varietal wines, but it is blends such as this that can be so attractive.

    This blend is awesome! From the spicy red berry fruit flavors of black cherry and blueberry with spicy cedar and tobacco followed by just a hint of pepper. Makes this a great wine for sipping and relaxing or pairs well with any food.

    This wine is easy to drink. My wife likes it room temp and I like just a little chill on it. To me it becomes smoother and tasty.
