2009 Solaro Estate Tempranillo, Single Vineyard, Unfiltered, Dripping Srings, TX, $38 – Rating 90

I tasted this wine shortly after it was bottled and again recently. It has aged into an excellent example to Texas Tempranillo. Good dark fruit flavors with supple tannins but gentle enough to be very food friendly. Tempranillo is a great red grape for Texas and Solaro Estate does it very well.
