Hye Meadow Winery Tempranillo 2012Hye Meadow Winery Tempranillo 2012, Red Wine, Texas High Plains, TX, $30 (S) – Rating 90

Another excellent example of Texas Tempranillo coming of age. Perfect red wine for a evening under the Hill Country oaks or complimenting the grill. Aromas of smokey cherry with just a hint of raspberry. A round mouth-feel with balanced acidity and soft tannins. On the palate, light to medium bodied with flavors of red cherry, smoke, ripe strawberry, ripe raspberry and dark spice. Dark chocolate on the finish. Buy This Wine

An excellent example of Texas Tempranillo. Medium-bodied with mouth-watering acidity. I’m talkin’ BBQ food pairing. An impressive nose of dark cherry and camp smoke with notes of tobacco. Flavors of dark cherry, ripe raspberry with hints of dark cola and tobacco box. Soft tannins with black cherry on the long finish. Buy This Wine
