La Colada 2017
This 50/50 blend of Tempranillo and Graciano is from our Terra Alta (Graciano) and Liberty Oaks (Tempranillo) vineyards. 25% of our Tempranillo was aged in new French oak and the rest of the blend was aged in neutral oak. Our winemaking winemaker team has crafted a Rioja style blend for our second vintage of La Colada under our Tizona label. Our 2017 La Colada has a brooding dark purple color. Big, meaty aromatics jump out of the glass and highlight primary flavors of blackberry, licorice, and luxardo cherry that lead into softer secondary floral aromas of lavender and violet. Its substantial tannic structure leads into and incredibly long finish.
