A unique bottling for the AVA, the 2015 Force Majeure Tempranillo is a stunning wine made by Todd Alexander. Showing off a deep hue, this Tempranillo shows wonderful earthy terroir with smoked brisket and black fruits the fill the nose. The palate shows of a marvelous texture and a silky mouthfeel that delights. Creme de cassis. Turkish coffee, cigar ash and Earl Grey tea flavors all marvelously combine on the palate. Decadent and rich considering the varietal, this is a spectacular and novel bottling that will cellar well for a decade or more. Drink 2019-2035- 95

Great Washington Tempranillo.
Only 1-3 bottles per membership, too bad because this is a great bottle. 1 down 2 to go.
