    Another wine that flirts with perfection is the 2012 Impulsivo. Showing the heights Tempranillo can hit in Washington State, this blockbuster offers tons of purple fruits, crushed rocks, exotic spice and spring flower characteristics to go with a full-bodied, fabulously concentrated, structured feel on the palate. What really sets this apart is the purity of fruit. In addition, this cuvee ages brilliantly, and doesn't start to really hit maturity until around age 8-10. This beauty will have 20-25 of overall longevity and is one thrilling drink!

    Ripe, open-textured and expressive, centering on plum and currant flavors that pick up nuances of pepper, bay leaf and dark chocolate as the finish lingers against crinkly tannins.

    (aged in 50% new Taransaud puncheons and foudres): Deep medium ruby. Inky aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet, mint and licorice, with some suggestions of superripe grapes. Boasts terrific dark berry intensity and an impression of strong but harmonious acidity. Finishes quite tannic and bound-up, with a suggestion of youthful bitterness. This was a shock to the palate following the wonderfully rich set of Syrahs here but this powerfully structured Tempranillo is built for a long life in bottle.
