2014 Tempranillo

Consensus: Not ready yet. Still too angular or closed or otherwise not in balance yet.
Les Garagistes Tempranillo
    Sugarloaf Vineyard
  • pH AT BOTTLING: 3.76
  • ALCOHOL: 13.9%
  • Pretty nice. Not a hugely expressive nose right now, but it's definitely dominated by oak – too much, I think, at least right now. Some nice, fresh fruit in there, with a good amount of tannin in the finish (though not drying tannins, thankfully). I'd give this a year to let the oak sink in and the tannin to integrate – hope that happens, anyway. For now, an okay but unbalanced wine.
