Vineyard Notes: Produced from organically grown, dry-farmed vineyards, Flaco Tempranillo shows the complexity of twice its price. These vines are tended in diverse micro-climates, allowing for more consistency of ripeness year after year. Yields are very low resulting in wines that showcase extreme quality for its price point. Vines were planted between 1995 and 2003.
Winemaking Notes: Flaco is aged in stainless steel tanks and cement tanks of 10,000-liter capacity. Maceration and fermentation takes 10 days for Tempranillo, followed by 2 days of post maceration at cool temperatures.
Tasting Notes: A highly perfumed nose evokes ripe red berries and flowers. A hint of white pepper lends a spicy touch. The plush, seamless and gently sweet Flaco Tempranillo offers raspberry and cherry compote flavors that become more energetic on the back half. The fresh, pure character of this wine makes this an extremely versatile wine to pair with food.
