Texas High Plains
15 months in American and French Oak
May 28. 2019
True to its Spanish counterparts, this Tempranillo is bold and full bodied with strong minerality. It has a dark, inky berry color and is rich in black currant aroma. The flavor is decadently rich with cherries, chocolate, and mocha with strong tannins lingering on the palate.

Tempranillo (Temp-ra-nee-oh) goes by many other names; Tinta de Toro, Tinto Fino in Spain and Aragonez or Tinta Roris in Portugalare just to name a few. It is a red wine grape that is mostly associated with the Spanish Rioja region where it is primarily blended with Grenache and Carignan. However, it makes an excellent single varietal wine. As of 2015, it was the fourth most widely planted wine making grape in the world, proving its popularity. The Texas High Plains is a particularly good region for growing Tempranillo as it has a similar climate to Spain.
