December 2023 Winemaker Selections
2018 Tempranillo "Cask 11"
Our Cask 11 Tempranillo reflects the old world style of aging wines in large casks. Cask 11 is fermented and aged in 300 gallon French Oak Casks . Utilizing the larger oak casks vs. small oak barrels reduces the impact of the oak on the flavor of the wine. After fermentation, we age the wine for 14 months before bottling. The 2018 Cask 11 is earthy and complex with a rich backbone of dark fruit and spice.
Tasting notes: Dark savory character, with black olive, blackberry and clove. Round approachable tannins with balanced acidity
Pairing: Roast Chicken and potatoes, Olive tapadnade crusted halibut
2018 Tempranillo Umpqua Valley
Sourced from dry farmed hillside vineyards in the western hills of our AVA, our barrel aged Tempranillo spends 2 years in French oak barrels and a little over a year in bottle before it's release. The tannins and structure deliver a classic bold Tempranillo.
Tasting Notes: This is a rich wine with dark fruit, and a touch of spicy oak on the finish.
Pairs well with: Best served with grilled steak or hearty braised meat sauces
2018 Tempranillo Reserva
Paul O’Brien Reserva is only made in the best vintages. Thus far 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2018 were of high enough quality to be deserving of the title Reserva. This wine is a winemaker barrel select of the best lots from 2018, by tasting through every barrel to select the very best barrels from the vintage.
Aged 24 months in new French oak gives this amazingly rich wine structure and balance.
Tasting Notes: The dark savory core is enveloped by black cherry and mocha aromas. Firm tannins and a long finish.
Pairs well with: Roast of Venison, Filet with Madeira Sauce and celery root puree, A good cigar by the campfire!
