From the Critics:
- "The 2003 Tempranillo is also sourced from 60-year-old vines and aged for 14 months in French oak. The principal difference between this and the Rufete is that the Tempranillo offers darker fruit and a bit more structure. It will take longer to fully blossom and will have a slightly wider window of peak drinkability. Give it 5-7 years in the cellar and drink it through 2025. These are singular wines that merit a spot on wine lists in our most discriminating restaurants."
"The obscure Rufete grape selling for nearly $100 a bottle?! It is a cousin to the Pinot Noir brought to the region by Burgundian settlers over 400 years ago. Over time, the Tempranillo vines of the area have grown to resemble the Rufete so much that only locals are permitted to pick at harvest time because they can more easily discriminate the subtle differences." -
