Winemaker Notes

100% Tempranillo (aka Tinta del Pais). The vines were planted from 1908-1930.
Here, the fresh, red berried, mineral character of Ribera shows through, with a slightly spicy, minty note. This is one of only a few Ribera wines where you can taste the "cut" and chewy, juicy Tempranillo flavors unburdened by oak. A crisp fruited wine with structure and substance, it's neither light nor unduly heavy. This would pair well with Thai beef salad,... View More

Critical Acclaim

RP 88
The Wine Advocate

The purple-colored 2010 Torremoron is 100% Tempranillo that was raised in stainless steel. Spice box, licorice, lavender, and blackberry aromas inform the nose of a juicy, ripe, succulent wine that will be a crowd-pleaser for another 4+ years. It is an outstanding value.

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs from the San Pablo Bay to the Mendocino County border. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the “true” Sonoma Coast, marked by high rainfall, marine soils, cool temperatures, and saline ocean breezes, from which one can actually see the ocean—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, creating a diversity of wine styles. Contained within the appellation is the much smaller and more focused Fort Ross-Seaview AVA.

Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant [Pinot Noir], Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah, with high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and fruit that is rarely overripe. One of the most favorable sites within the region is the Petaluma Gap, where a break in the coastal mountain range allows Pacific winds and fog to funnel through and cool the vineyards.
