2013 Renwood Tempranillo

2013 Renwood Tempranillo

Overall the 2013 vintage was a grand slam and the best I've seen in 15 years. Temperatures were never too extreme and here in Amador we rarely saw days over 100F. As is typical we continued to experience the dramatic diurnal swings in the evenings where night time lows dipped into the upper 40Fs providing the perfect conditions for optimal acid development. Grapes ripened evenly and the colors, tannins and overall flavor matrix across all varieties was stunning. Veraison occurred a few weeks early which allowed the grapes an exceptional amount of hang time allowing them to develop excellence in every facet. The resulting new wines are deep and concentrated and I am confident they will be enjoyed for years to come.

2013 Ghost Pines Napa County Sonoma County San Joaquin County Red Blend 750mL

2013 Ghost Pines Napa County Sonoma County San Joaquin County Red Blend 750mL

In 2013, we selected much of the fruit for this blend from Sonoma County, with the balance coming from vineyards in Lake and Napa counties. All three counties saw phenomenal conditions during the growing season, when grapes hung on the vine late into the season and developed concentrated color and layers of flavor. The result is great tannin structure, plush ripeness and desirable length in the wine.

2013 Palmina Santa Barbara County Red Dolcetto 750mL Wine

2013 Palmina Santa Barbara County Red Dolcetto 750mL Wine

"Dolcetto" translates to "little sweet one"- not because it is a sweet wine (it is perfectly dry) - because it is a friendly and easy-going grape to work with and so pleasurable in the glass. Even Dolcetto's hue speaks to its easy going nature, with a deep and bright ruby color inviting a sip. The nose is spicy and very berry, with a hint of spice mingling with blackberry aromas that waft from the glass.
