Reustle-Prayer Rock Vineyards 2014 Timnah Bloc Tempranillo, Umpqua Valley, $29

reustle-prayer-rock-vineyards-timnah-bloc-tempranillo-2014-labelSouthern Oregon grower/winemaker Stephen Reustle loves to show the versatility of the Umpqua Valley with his assortment of award-winning reds and whites. And his skill with Syrah continues to show on an international stage. However, Tempranillo remains a focus. This latest vintage off his Romancing Rock parcel, established in 2002, is a lighter, more approachable Temp with tones of black cherry, strawberry, NECCO Wafer, sage and wet concrete. Its structure is focused on juicy acidity, which keeps the tannin structure tucked nicely into the background. Enjoy with grilled lamb, quail or Manchego cheese.
