COR Cellars | Tempranillo

Tempranillo is usually the varietal that marks the beginning of harvest for our still wines. Wanting to add a light bodied red with the ability to be chilled to the line up, Tempranillo entered the picture in 2011 at COR. While diversifying our portfolio, there is the added bonus that the vineyard site is next to one of the best burrito places in the state, a welcome stop during harvest sampling. Like Joe Strummer ambling on an Arabian down a dusty trail. Less Spanish bomb and more Spanish trot. Unexpected, herbal, smoky, and just a bit punk rock. When this Tempranillo drops, you’re going to feel it.
