This bold Tempranillo is a great example of
the full-bodied reds coming out of California’s
emerging Sierra Foothills region.
What You Need To Know
Tempranillo is Spain’s signature
grape variety, responsible for that country’s greatest reds,
including the majestic wines of Rioja. Not much Tempranillo
grows in the US; this bottling from Dancing Coyote comes from a
small vineyard high up in the foothills of the Sierra mountains, in
Gold Rush country. Owned by the McCormack family—fifthgeneration
California farmers who got into the wine business in
1998—Dancing Coyote is making a name for itself by specializing
in lesser-known varietals such as Chenin Blanc, Albari.o and,
more recently, Tempranillo. Working out of a Clarksburg winery
built in 1868 as a granary, the McCormacks turned out just 17
barrels of this cuvée, which features the grape’s deep, spicy
and conifer scents.
Dry and spicy, with intense
plum and herb tones.
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
Sausages or boldly flavored
pork, lamb or beef dishes.
