2018 Griffin Creek Tempranillo

For more than two decades we have been working with the Moore family, dedicated growers crafting the highest-quality wines from their Rogue Valley vineyards since 1996. With temperatures similar to France's Bordeaux or Rhône regions, this area is an emerging Oregon region.

On the Nose: Dark currant crimson color. Scent of wild boysenberries, coco nibble, cardamon, nutmeg and red peppercorns offer a very intriguing entry.

On the Palate: Flavors of raspberries, strawberries, black olive tapenade and white pepper give this Tempranillo a very complex and intriguing flavor profile. The fine grain tannins provide the proper texture you would expect.

Food Pairing: Flank steak with bing cherry barbeque sauce, short rib ragu over polenta, rack of lamb with fig jam.

Peak Drinkability: 2022 - 2032
