Jardin Secreto is a blend of 65% Tempranillo, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 13% Cinsault. This ripe and juicy wine is reminiscent of crushed strawberry, raspberry, and black cherry. It shows secondary notes of smoke, cinnamon, and cocoa from the 11 months it spends in New French and American oak barriques.
Pairing: Jardin Secreto goes well with BBQ pork ribs, smoked beef brisket, and strong cheeses.
In 1997 Tru (originally from the Netherlands) and Donald Miller bought the lands that would become Adobe Guadalupe. In 1998 they plant 20 hectares of vineyards where they grow Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Merlot, Nebbiolo, Viognier, Syrah, Cinsault, Malbec, Mourve`dre and Grenache. The vines were first harvested for vinification in the 2001 with a total production of around 500 cases. That has grown to an annual production of approximately 9,000 cases.
