    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Tempranillo and Graciano vines grown in our Matchbook Vineyard in the Dunnigan Hills are from cuttings imported from the Pesquera region of Spain. While the traditional earthy and spicy flavors are evident from these old-world varietals, the Matchbook Tempranillo shows its California upbringing in the expansive aromas of blackberry, raspberry and barrel spice. Rich flavors of blackberry cobbler and blueberry mingle with dark chocolate and mocha. Rugged, bold and dense, Matchbook 2010 Tempranillo is our most concentrated to date. The wine is luscious and layered with a good firm finish.

    Pair with a grilled New York strip steak with crumbled blue cheese topping or any hearty stew or sauce dish.

    Blend: 83% Tempranillo, 10% Tannat, 7% Graciano

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Tempranillo ranks alongside some of Spain’s great values made from this grape, not an easy achievement when this varietal is grown in California. A blend of 83% Tempranillo, 10% Tannat and 7% Graciano that was aged 22 months in a combination of American, French and Hungarian oak, it exhibits copious notes of spice box, cedarwood, black and red fruits, licorice and a hint of graphite. With a voluptuous texture, medium body and a layered mouthfeel, it should be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years
