2008 The Spaniard
A wine that will leave you mostly dead! A Rioja-style blend of Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha
91 points! "It may just be that this 84% Tempranillo blend (plus 12% Graciano, 4% Garnacha) needs some more time in bottle to develop, in which case it will only get better. In the meantime it has undeniable juicy, red fruit, grippy tannins that are just starting to mellow and is overall a very savory and delicious wine. Fermented as a field blend, The Spaniard mingled for months in all-new French oak and would go gangbusters with lamb or other red meats." - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast magazine
Made at Twisted Oak by Winemakers of Unusual Size, this swashbuckling Calaveras blend is so big you’ll need six fingers to hold the bottle. It’s inconceivable that one could resist these aromas and flavors as big as Fezzik himself. Share it with your special Buttercup, a Gentle Giant, or the entire Kingdom... as you wish.
