Rarezitas Torcidos (rah-ruh-ZEE-tas tor-SEE-dos), [SP] n pl., 1. literally, Twisted Little Freaks. You’re holding one of those Freaks in your hand. A Freakish wine so Freakishly rare, only a few dozen Freakish cases were made.
This chewy Graciano comes from our own Estate vineyard on Red Hill at the winery in Vallecito. The Willow block is used for our Spaniard program but we felt that the 2009 vintage of Graciano was worthy of its own bottling. The logical thing to do was bottle a small amount for the wine club so we developed the Twisted Freaks club just for occasions like this.
