Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

This Woot offering represents the last of this Tempranillo. The wine is sold out at the winery. Twisted Oak held this back just for Woot!

 

2008 Rolleri Tempranillo 750ml 3-Pack

Aromas of currant, raspberry, black cherry, & tobacco with spicy anise and nutmeg nuances; and flavors of raspberry, cassis, & Bing cherry.  There is a snappy texture and flavors of cassis and cherry that prevail, with a lingering, spicy finish. Pairs well with grilled meat; would taste great with marbled cuts of beef and lamb from the grill. Try with traditional Osso Bucco or Lamb Stew. Sheep’s milk cheeses would be perfect, especially a soft one like La Serena. Great with Manchego, too as its slightly salty taste will soften the palate and complement the spice in the Tempranillo. Twisted Oak sees a distinctively Old-World style to this Tempranillo, and it tastes great today but will also benefit from some bottle age. Be sure and save one for 2014!

This Tempranillo was made from the famed Rolleri Vineyard just outside of Angels Camp. It is the first vineyard to plant Tempranillo in Calaveras County and among the earliest plantings in California. The 2008 vintage was a tough one for most grapes grown in Calaveras County, with spring frosts affecting the consistency of ripening throughout the growing season. Tempranillo was hit especially hard by the frosts, but grape yields decreased the size of crop and gave better than average quality with good acidity and structure. Fermented with a Spanish yeast strain and punched down three times a day during fermentation, the pressed wine was racked to a goodly portion of new American Oak barrels.
 

Winery Details

Twisted Oak Winery

Founded:
2004
Owners:
Jeff and Mary Stai
Location:
Murphys, CA
We’re often asked what the background of Twisted Oak is, to which we invariably reply, “The Sierra Nevada, of course!” If we are pressed further, we are forced to admit that Twisted Oak Winery is the culmination of a delusion, er, vision by Jeff and Mary Stai. The vision was of a terroir based winery making superior, hand crafted, yummy wines, and then having more Twisted fun than anyone in the industry selling them.
 
Jeff and Mary found 120 acres just outside Murphys in the Sierra Foothills at nearly 2000 feet elevation. It is there that they planted 10 acres of vineyards in Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano, and Garnacha to take advantage of the continental Mediterranean soil types and climate. It is on top of this property, with an amazing view of the Sierras, where the state-of-the-art, no-pumpover, four-level gravity flow winery was built. When completed in 2004 it included open tank, stainless steel fermenters along with our own 300-foot barrel cave. This is all under the watchful eye of a 350 year old California Blue Oak tree that not only is our namesake, but also adorns every Twisted Oak bottle.
 
Jeff and Mary work closely with winemaker Scott Klann in crafting the Twisted Oak wines. Scott has been in the wine making business over 15 years. Scott’s knowledge of what works best is unmatched in the area (it doesn’t hurt that he was raised in Murphys.) Scott’s experience and personal relationships with the growers in Calaveras County allows Twisted Oak Winery to purchase the best fruit from these outstanding vineyards to complement our estate grape programs. Whatever the formula Jeff, Mary and Scott, have devised for Twisted Oak, it has been validated by the hundreds of consumers that buy us out of wine each and every year. Twisted Oak Winery has also received accolades by publications and competitions which have graced us with many scores of 90 or above. We think the Wine Enthusiast put it best “The gang at Twisted Oak Winery are taking winemaking in this area to the next level…” Cheers! And always, keep it Twisted! Twisted Oak Winery!
