TN: 2012 Enfield Wine Co. Tempranillo Shake Ridge

2012 Enfield Wine Co. Tempranillo Shake Ridge - USA, California, Sierra Foothills, Amador County (1/8/2019)
A few extra years in the cellar have allowed development to start, though more time is called for. There is still a healthy ration of primary fruit, and the earthy elements of Tempranillo are beginning to come more to the front. Tannins are well balanced to the fruit level. It’s not dusty/herbal like a Rioja, but it’s also very pure, with little oak influence, so the fruit can shine through. I am very hopeful for the future.

I’ve seen this at BevMo but haven’t been tempted, partly by the price. Good to know that it’s interesting though.

This is the prettiest wine I have enjoyed in a long time.

I agree, lovely wine with a nice future ahead.
