Nagual del JUDITH Tempranillo

100% Tempranillo from the Judith block.  Arizona Tempranillo is what we remember Riojas used to be before the over oaked point driven wines showed up. Berry fruit, eucalyptus & desert sage nose. Soft integrated oak gives an old world mouth feel followed by droplets of cassis, red currants and sweet cigar box tobacco.

REMINDER! Wine is a perishable product. Despite all precautions, you do buy at your own risk and there are no refunds or returns on wines. KEEP IN MIND, IF TEMPERATURES DROP/SPIKE WE WILL HOLD ORDERS UNTIL IT WARMS UP/COOLS DOWN.

Caduceus Cellars Judith's block, Jerome AZ

The Judith Block, is located on a south east facing slope at 4900 ft. Less than a half acre each of Nebbiolo, Aglianico, and Tempranillo with a dash of Malvasia in between. Mostly rocky decomposed granite and caleche soil with a layer of chalk just just beneath the topsoil. Perfect Spanish / Italian hillside setting. This block even more so than others due to it’s extreme slope, is hand farmed. Spacing is roughly 5′ by 5′ and generally cropped at about 2 to 2.5 tons per acre. These blocks compose the Nagual del Judith. Some years single varietal, others a field blend of all. Apologies, but No, we do not give tours of this or any block.
