Bodega de Edgar
More from this Producer
Translated from Spanish slang, meaning "The Blondie". La Guera has evolved to a blend of Albarino and Torrontes. La Guera is a solid, yet easy drinking. It offers a bright nose of honeysuckle, white flowers and sweet melon. Pure, clean and compelling, it is crisp and balanced, with a clean mineral and lemon hazelnut finish.
Edgar Torres' restless imagination and passion for Paso Robles fruit can’t be stopped, and we are pleased to offer something revolutionary to our lineup: the inaugural “Can’t Stop” Grenache. Edgar has incorporated the “Nouveau” technique known as carbonic maceration, where grapes are left on their stems in a sealed tank to produce a light and fruit-driven expression of Grenache that’s just at home in the fridge as it is in the cellar. Meant for immediate consumption and maximum enjoyment.
In Spain, only a wine that uses fruit of the highest quality, crafted under the most stringent vinification practices, and aged for an extended period of time in both barrel & bottle are allowed to bear the distinction of being a "Gran Reserva"...and ours is no different. Tempranillo is Spain's viticultural gift to the world of wine, and thanks to the soils and climate of Westside Paso, this varietal is just as at home here as it is in the Old Country of the Spanish countryside.
This wine greets you with lemon blossoms, pear, and honeysuckle on the nose followed by tropical fruit notes such as pineapple and honeydew melon. The palate is well balanced with a slight creamy texture and a finish that showcases the acidity of this wine.
This beautiful ruby colored, fruit driven wine welcomes your nose with notes of cedar, plum, and fresh leather. On the palate, flavors of black cherries, dried figs and tobacco and spice. This smooth wine finishes with soft tannis and white pepper, leaving you craving more.
Part of a series called Homage to Spain, the "Tarragona" is stylized after the Monstant region. The Homage to Spain series is special because it brings winemaker Edgar Torres back to his original vision: making wines in California that honor the native grapes and winemaking traditions of Spain. The beautiful wines of Spain are being so underrepresented, both here and throughout the state, in spite of Paso Robles hosting a perfect climate for ripening these unique varietals. Edgar's vision has always been to show new wine drinkers and seasoned connoisseurs alike that their favorite wine might be one they haven’t tried yet, made with fruit they might not have ever heard of.
