Composition: 100% Tempranillo from Lost Draw Vineyard in the Texas High Plains
Price: Around $32 at Lewis Wines in the Spring of 2016.
Notes: Loads of red fruit right up front; raspberry, strawberry, and red cherry. This wine is unfiltered, giving it an interesting body and mouth-feel. Milder tannins but brighter acidity. On our last visit to Lewis Wines we tasted 3 Tempranillos side by side; 2 from High Plains fruit and 1 from Hill Country fruit. It was a good opportunity to compare varietal wines from different Texas AVAs, and the unfiltered style of this one made the comparison even more interesting. It's always fun watching what Lewis Wines is up to.
