2020 Del Toro Tempranillo
Del Toro is our Reserve level, 100% Tempranillo grown in Yakima Valley AVA in Naches Heights. You may find aromas of dried dark cherry on the nose followed by red licorice with hints of roasted coffee and leather around the edges. The Palate reveals sensuous deep red fruit, hints of earth, stunning acidity, and rich tannin which contribute to a lingering finish.
Two Coyotes Vineyard, Naches Heights
26 months French Oak, 30% New
Two Coyotes Vineyard holds 11yr old clone 1 & 2 Tempranillo in about a foot of dirt over cracked Basalt, the slopes face south east for great early day exposure and the elevation is at about 1200 ft. The higher elevation offers a slightly cooler climate allowing the grapes a longer and steadier growing season and great flavor development.
We produced 325 cases.
It was an average growing season but very hot and dry. The fruit came in early at the last week of September.
