The 2017 vintage was cooler than average, a warm trend just before harvest allowed for the grapes to fully ripen. The grapes were harvested in early to late November, with a portion set aside to dry for 125 days. After pressing and fermentation the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 18 months. The best barrels from our individual vineyard blocks are chosen for the Temptress blend.
Pair this wine with dishes such as prime rib, beef tenderloin, osso bucco, mushroom risotto, charcuterie and aged cheese, or dark chocolate for dessert.
