The Texas terroir is in full force in this Tempranillo. It is bold and full bodied with a strong earthiness. With dark berry color it is rich with aromas of black berry and black current. The flavor is decadently rich with cherries, chocolate, sweet tobacco, and mocha. Strong tannins lingering on the palate along with cherry and a hint of smoke.
88% Tempranillo from Bingham Family Vineyard, Meadow, TX 12% Merlot from Diamante Doble Vineyards Tokio, TX
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.
