Rhone Ranger!

  • Larry Shaffer owner and wine maker for Tercero is a big fan of screw caps and I can get behind that effort all day long. My brother visited him in April and shipped out some wine and this is my first, but not my last Tercero wine.

  • 2017 Tercero Carignane – USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara County (5/7/2022)
    Day 1: First Tercero wine I have tasted and certainly won’t be the last. Been sipping this all day and really balancing out this evening. Nice smoke, red berries, roasted meats, mild spices, underbrush and floral notes. Very tasting and medium finish. Highly recommend this wine. (Screw Cap) 92 points
    Day 2: Not as intense and features sour red berries, mild spice, floral and underbrush. Solid but recommend day 1 for sure.
    Recommendation: This is an outstanding pop and pour wine. Initially you get the smoke and roasted meat character and should age for 5 plus years although great now. (92 points)
