2011 Tempranillo

Our first vintage from Folin, this wine demonstrates the elegance and finesse this Spanish varietal achieves when unencumbered by excessive over-ripeness or manipulation. Good, dark ruby color with a beautiful nose of crushed blackberry, marionberry and bright, fresh fruit: candied cherry with orange peel marry with a touch of rose petal. With a very focused entry on the palate, the wine gives way to earth, and  a purity of fruit expression lingering on the palate. Blackberry and marionberry flavors dominate, followed up with mole spiciness. Rich tannins give this wine texture and a velvety mouthfeel reminiscent of Tempranillo-based wines of the Rioja. With a great balance of fruit, tannin and acidity this wine is enjoyable now, yet the balance promises an even greater reward for those who can cellar a bottle or two!

2011 Trig

Less than 5 cases available...

The 2011 Trig is a blend of Olenik and Goodrich Vineyards. 2011 is known as a rather shy vintage, but there is nothing shy about this cuvee. Trig is very expressive on the nose with boisterous, velvety fruit. Black cherry cola meets red vine and licorice whips. On the palate, this expressive character continues, wrapped up in a terrifically rich and structured wine, with hints of black tea and “woodsy” spices like cedar and clove. Enjoy now with pork chops and apple sauce. This wine will only continue to broaden over the next seven years as it ages.
