Lewis Wines - 2010 Texas Red Wine

Lewis Wines - 2010 Texas Red Wine

Composition: 55% Tempranillo, 35% Mourvedre, 8% Syrah, 2% Grenache

Price: Around $26 at Lewis Wines in the Spring of 2014.  We picked up a bottle of the 2011 in the Spring of 2015.

Notes:  This was one of the first wines from Lewis Wines, a really impressive early effort.  Their history of using space at Pedernales Cellars before they had their own cellar is referenced on the back label.  It's always great to see the established wineries help the new winemakers get their businesses going. Lots of tart cherry on the front from the Tempranillo.  The Mourvedre adds a softer earthiness dimension.  It's not a big tannin wine and is at 12.5% ABV, so I think this one is at the "drink it now" phase.
