2014 Tinto Tempranillo
In 2014 our Tinto Tempranillo came from our newer plantings at Dineen and Upland Vineyards. These sites were custom planted exclusively for Pomum with an assortment of Tempranillo clones, some of which were imported directly from the famous Ribera de Duero (Tinta del Pais) and Toro (Tinta de Toro) regions along the Duero river in Spain. Upland and Dineen Vineyards constitute some of the best terroir in Washington with steep south facing slopes located within the Snipes Mountain and Yakima Valley AVA. All our Tempranillo in this blend was picked well before the cool weather arrived in September and as such, the fast and furious ripening yielded considerable fruit concentration and incredible structure. Aromatically enticing with smoke, game and dark fruit followed by flavors of licorice, stone and dark berries. The rich and pronounced tannins contribute structure to the blend and are a good indicator of aging potential. Decant if opened in the near term, otherwise enjoy from mid-2018 through 2027.
