Tasting NOTES

With so many fans of our red wines, we love having the Tempranillo Rosé in our back pocket as a perfect summer alternative. The incredibly vibrant color and aromas of pomegranate, strawberry, and orange peel greet you from the glass. Layers of flavors unfold as this wine stretches out, including hibiscus, kiwi, rhubarb and a dash of minerality. This is a seriously food-friendly rosé and will pair well with your favorite barbecue meats and/or a beautiful sunset.

Vineyard NOTES

The Bundschu family's 150+ year-old vineyard is located on the southwestern slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains, just eight miles north of San Pablo Bay. The terrain below 150 foot elevation features gently sloping Huichica clay loam soils with gravel deposits and cooler growing conditions that deliver minerality and focused acidity. Nestled next to our Pinot Noir and Chardon-nay vines is a 5-acre plot of Tempranillo with a storied history. The vineyard is planted to two different clones â a UC Davis 2 clone and the other one, the Mauro clone, traveled back with Jim and Nancy Bundschu in a suitcase from Spain's Rioja region. Yep, our very own "suitcase clone," and it definitely makes this wine unique. Yields 4 tons per acre.
