Great Texas Tempranillo. Both TX High Plains and TX Hill Country fruit pair beautifully together. Sour cherry and fresh mint with plenty of wood spice and nice acid. Well done David.

Texas temp! I have to admit, of all the Texas wines I've tried to date, this one was one of the better ones for sure. It would be hard to distinguish this one from true Rioja. The nose was nice, showing a bouquet of Spanish cedar, leather, and mint. The pallet was much like a Crianza style, exhibiting notes of dark cherries, wood spices, smoke, and a smooth, but lingering finish.

After watching Somm: Into the Wild, I've realized I know nothing about wine, but I know this is delicious
