Sourced solely from our estate Silva vineyard, the 2014 Tempranillo is the first vintage from these newly grafted vines. The Silva vineyard is located in the newly created Kelsey Bench AVA located within Lake County.  Steele Wines has been crafting wines using the top notched fruit from this vineyard since our inception in 1991. 



Tempranillo is best known as the grape used in the wines of Rioja, Spain’s most famous wine region.  A rich and robust red wine, we age our Tempranillo primarily in American oak barrels for 18 months.  Soft and velvety, this wine is seductive on the nose and elegant on the palate.  Dark cherry and tobacco with hints of anise



Pair with a perfectly grilled ribeye topped with herbed butter and served with garlic mashed potatoes or rack of lamb with rosemary-thyme crust.
