This wonderful Tempranillo from the Texas High Plains meets the eye with a beautiful garnet hue. Aromas of light smoke and mellow tobacco are a nice greeting. Flavors of rich cherries and vanilla compliment smoke and tobacco on the palate.

Food Pairing Notes
Steak with druken mushrooms (use this wine to get them drunk!) smoked salmon with gouda, toasted brioche.
Other Notes
Tempranillo... As Texas as Tacos! That is to say that it originally came from somewhere else and we made it our own... some would say better! Tempranillo, as most of the world knows it today, originated in Spain. Its versatility made it a popular grape with wine makers all over Spain and Portugal. Without oak aging the wine produced form this grape can be soft and subtle, perfect for blending and rounding out other varietals. With oak aging (particularly new oak) the wine becomes rich with smoke and spice nuances. Here in Texas, grape growers are always looking for varietals that can stand up to our unique climate. After all, it’s not unheard of to have all four seasons in one week, or even one day. Not to mention the heat during the summer can be unbearable for a lot of grape vines. Tempranillo, however, tend to bud out a little later than other varietals making it a little less susceptible to late freezes. They are also heat and drought tolerant and ripen quickly. In Texas, wonderful things are being done with the Tempranillo grape; from stand out single varietal bottlings, unique and surprising blends, and even soft refreshing roses. One thing is for sure, Tempranillo has found a home in Texas and it’s not going away. Cheers! - Angela Chapman, WSET III
