For the adventurous wine drinker looking to explore the diversity of the wine world, Jeff Runquist Wines offers unique varietals from California’s premier appellations inspired by the curiosity and passions of our growers and winemakers.
We produce balanced wines that can be enjoyed in their youth, but will also age and become more complex with time. Our wines share a theme of fresh fruit reflective of the varietal flavors inherent in the grape.
The 2017 Tempranillo has dark purple color with good depth and youthful garnet hues. The aroma has scents of dusty currants and plums along with leather, mint, herb, and mineral.
This is a Zinfandel, that while big and rich, (15.4% ABV), remains true to the varietal without stepping over the line and into the realm of off dry, late harvest, and dessert styled wines.
