'Social Distance' Tempranillo Blend, Texas, 2018
This wine in many ways is the best wine we’ve made to date. The story, the quality of the fruit and the precision in the production all brought to life in a singular wine that embodies the strength and the art of a great blend. This 80% Tempranillo, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot blend was poised to be a future vintage of Sketch, but because of wine demands we’ve had to re-allocate the 2018 blend. This wine is the first time we’ve sourced grapes from three different vineyards and worked with three different collaborating winemakers to make one wine. To do this wine justice we have to talk about each grape separately, and then discuss how they contribute to the overall blend. Ultimately, this wine is incredibly complex aromatically, has beautiful structure and flavor across the palate, is age worthy and sets a new standard of Tempranillo blends for us.
