Domaine Trouvère is Lange Estate Winery's sister label, created by founders and winemakers Don, Wendy and Jesse Lange to accentuate small-lot wines focusing on fruit sourced from premier vineyards throughout the state of Oregon. From the warm, dry hillsides of Southern Oregon to the red volcanic soils of the Dundee Hills, these wines are a travelogue of the Northwest.
The 2016 Tempranillo is sourced from the Umpqua Valley, and was aged in French and American Oak for 11 months.

No tech sheets were given, but from the nose, I would assume that this is aged in partial American oak barrels because of the dill and coconut aromas that are present in the glass. Presenting a dark garnet-ruby core with a bluish rim, it is a stunning wine that I would call a Rioja Reserva in a blind taste test. Baked blue plum, crushed blackberries, cocoa powder, leather, and purple rose are all present on the palate. It finishes a touch earthy and spicy, with that lovely Tempranillo tone that I adore.
