Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A Tempranillo blend, The Bull exudes flavors and aromas of blackberries, pomegranate, black currant, violets, mocha, and earth. Lower alcohol, moderate tannins and a lingering, long finish make this an excellent food pairing.
Vineyard Notes
The Bull's grapes were sourced from 2 distinct vineyards in Nevada and Amador County - all at or above 1,800 ft. in elevation. Rolling hills with varying aspects allowed for multiple renditions of varietals, even within the varietals themselves. Yields in 2017 ranged from 2.1-5 kilos per vine and all shoulders and wings were removed.
Production Notes
The grapes for the 2017 were all harvested in the wee hours of the morning in early to late October 2017. The brix ranged anywhere from 22.8 to 25.4B.
Production
Fermentations were all started spontaneously and punched down by hand in small fermenters 3-4 times per day, depending on extraction. Primary fermentation was finished in barrels and Battonage ranged from 6-12 months on a weekly basis.
