2016 Cask 11 Tempranillo
Our Cask 11 Tempranillo reflects the old world style of aging wines in large casks. Cask 11 is fermented and aged in 500 gallon French Oak Casks. The cask fermentation retains heat and encourages tannin development through gentle extraction and maturation. 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 2016 Cask 11 is earthy and complex with a rich backbone of dark fruit and spice.
