Tempranillo "Torro" Wine Information

Inner Sanctum Cellars has masterfully crafted a new world Spanish Tempranillo from the rich California foothills of Tuolumne County. In 2011 we formed a powerful partnership with Zuni Vineyards, who successful secured rare grape clones from the exclusive Tinta De Toro & Ribera Del Duero regions of Spain. Mocha, licorice, blackberry and concentrated flavors of blueberry mingle with creamy oak and a silky layer of soft tannins to produce an exquisite experience for the palate. The grapes were gently crushed and fermented in small open fermenters and pressed off to small French oak barrels for barrel aging for 20 months prior to bottling. Tuolumne’s rugged climate and soil are perfectly suited for growing full and complex Spanish style wines with attitude and this Iberian Bull is no exception!
