In Wine We Lust
La Vaquera 2015
This fanciful Red Blend is made primarily of Tempranillo and old vine Grenache, with touches of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. All of the fruit was hand harvested from the nearby Valley of San Vicente and fermented in 40 year old refurbished concrete vats on the historical Formex Ibarra property in Guadalupe Valley. This supple, young blend has very little contact with oak… Just enough to lend a little spice to this fresh and versatile ensemble.
