2016 Tinto de la Hacienda  -  La Lomita

The Lomita Estate

- While the winery wasn't formally established until 2009, La Lomita's land holdings include vineyard sites with some of the Valle de Guadalupe's oldest vines.

La Lomita produces most of its wines with fruit from their organically farmed vineyards located mid-valley on a northwestern facing slope at 950 ft elevation. The winery is one of the few to be certified organic. 

- Their vineyards lie approximately 11 miles from the Pacific at an elevation of 1,000 ft. The soil profile is a mix of clay and granite. 

Total production: 17 acres under vine, 8 wines, 7,500 cases

2016 Tinto de la Hacienda - La Lomita

  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    Largely Tempranillo, this wine is built in a classic "west coast" style and is bursting with vanilla, toasted oak, black berries, and bright red fruits on the nose. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied and muscular, showcasing well how the edginess of Tempranillo can be softened with by cashmere of Merlot. If consumed now, we recommend a 45 min decant.
