Brooklyn West specializes in handcrafted, small lot winemaking. With production based in Sonoma’s Alexander Valley, we source our grapes from some of the best vineyards in Northern California. Winemaker Stew Epstein, chose to follow a winemaking philosophy of minimalist intervention, relying upon what is naturally available on the grapes and from nature to inform the journey of our wines. As one of the first American wineries to specialize in Tempranillo, we learned to combine Old World artisanal winemaking techniques with New World fruit-forwardness, crafting wines that are intense and deeply concentrated, yet elegant at the same time. We went on to perfect that signature winemaking approach with all of our wines.

Full-bodied with bright red cherries, earthy and toffee notes. Superbly balanced. This is Spain's answer to Pinot - very versatile with food.
