Enriquez Estate Wines

Tempranillo

About this wine

Tobacco, leather, with darker berry flavors. Slightly smoky. Perfect for those that love smoky whiskeys, Mezcal, cigars and BBQ. Showcases how a small amount of ash falling from a Napa fire impacts the bottled product. No signs of smoke during fermentation or aging until a couple months after bottling. Held back in cellar a lot longer before being released to let it come into it's own. Needs time to open up. Open several hours before drinking or decant.

Meet the Winemaker

Cecilia Enriquez

Winemaker/Owner

Enriquez Estate Wines

Cecilia grew up in New Jersey, without any background in wine. But when Cecilia and her family visited California in 2009, she immediately fell in love with wine country. Upon losing her job at Wells Fargo during the recession, she decided to throw caution to the wind and move to California to start a wine brand in her family's name. Attaching herself to anyone who would teach her, she quickly learned the craft and began winning awards for her wines. Now on her 11th vintage as winemaker, Cecilia has honed her skills and begun experimenting with varietals not usually found in the Russian River area and winemaking practices not usually implemented in the United States. She is all about pushing the envelope and feels that her unique entry into winemaking empowers her to think outside the box.
