2017 Tempranillo, Newsom Vineyards

2017 Tempranillo, Newsom Vineyards

Firm tannins with refreshing acidity and rich aromas. Look for heady top-notes of dusty mint, black cherry, and soft oregano, leading to a burst of dark red plum, cassis, and a sense of Texas High Plains red dirt.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Medium-bodied, bursting with fruit: black plum, Luxardo cherry, dusty mint, cassis, red dirt, pipe tobacco. Complex, exotic, and rich.
Vineyard Notes
Three generations of the Newsom family farm grapes for Bending Branch Winery on their land near Plains, Texas. Their fruit is consistently among the very best in Texas.
Winemaker Notes
This Tempranillo was macerated using Flash Détente technology.
Food Pairing Notes
Braised chicken thighs with chorizo, green olives and smoked paprika, on creamy grits with Manchego cheese. The layered depth of paprika, chorizo, and cheese provides intensity without weight, matching the rich aromatic complexity of the wine.
