Here’s an Oregon winemaker in the Walla Walla Valley producing Tempranillo from Washington’s warm and arid Wahluke Slope. It hints at black raspberry, president plum, chocolate and cinnamon toast in the aromas. On the palate, there’s a fair bit of toasted oak on the entry, then a reward of black cherry, boysenberry and black pepper tones throughout. It’s a more lighter-structured Temp than many in the Northwest, with acidity cast ahead of tannins. This wine is available at their Woodinville tasting room, which offers Ladies Game Night on March 27.
