Pedernales Cellars - 2012 Texas Valhalla Blend

Pedernales Cellars - 2012 Texas Valhalla Blend

Composition:  Tempranillo, Montepulciano, and Aglianico

Price: $39.95 on Pedernales Cellars' website.  We got our bottle as part of the wine club.

Notes:  This is the first year of this red blend and will vary from year to year giving the winemaker an outlet to experiment with new blends.  It has a lot of fruit up front and some of that dustiness and cocoa that's reminiscent of some Tempranillos in the finish.  Medium body with medium tannins that linger for awhile.  I wouldn't have guessed an Italian and Tempranillo blend.  It'll be fun to see what they do with this wine from year to year.
