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.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
It may be Graciano but it’s not a boxer and it ain’t Italian either. Still, you’ll find punchy aromas of plums, blackberries and jam with a wallop of dried spicy characters. Then a powerful jab of deep sweet blackberries and a one-two finish with blackberries, dried herbs and spices. Come to think of it, this Twisted Freak is quite the knockout, isn’t it?
Food Pairing Notes
Duck Duck Goose! Or ham, Manchego, anchovies, roast pork, and all sorts of hearty, legume filled stews.

At first I was disappointed after opening my initial Membership delivery, but after tasting this, it quickly became one of my favorites. Unique, bright taste, it hit the spot drinking with friends on a warm Texas fall evening. On my short list for sure!
