Extraordinary wine made from the 4 Tempranillo Spanish clones on volcanic soil that shows high personality and uniqueness. — Robert Parker
This wine’s calling card is its atypical blend of different Tempranillo varieties sourced from all over Spain, adapted to Calatrava climate. Strong on the nose, with a blend of ripe red berry scents, a hint of caramel and a slight roastiness coming from the excellent quality of the oak barrels. Its complexity and overall excellence is the result of the blending of the characteristics of its different grape clones. Powerful and tasty on the palate, 4T4 is full bodied and voluminous yet elegant and delicate.
Drink now through 2020.
Blackbird Vineyards’ winemaking duo, Aaron Pott and Kyle Mizuno, are the artisans behind ÆRENA Wines. Their relationship was once that of mentor and student, but after years of collaboration, they are family. To spend time with them is an exploration of wine, replete with quick wit and belly-clutching humor.In farming and winemaking, Aaron and Kyle strive to communicate a vineyard’s sense of place–by working the wine at the right time to expose the best characteristics of variety and site. According to Aaron, “In almost all definitions of art in the dictionary, there is a reference to ‘human works of beauty.’ ÆRENA believes wine certainly fits under this classification. It is an object created by human intervention that creates something beautiful. Wine is unique as art in that it is ephemeral; once it is consumed, it is gone. Aaron wholly appreciates working with Kyle. So it is appropriate that when asking Kyle to define their winemaking philosophy, his retort is, “Let the wines speak for themselves and don’t screw it up.”
This perfumed old-vine field blend is rich and stylish. It has weight without power, a fine combination of lively red fruit and firm tannins, and will age well for years. Drink from 2019. – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast
