2016 "La Herencia"
The earthiness in this wine with underlying dark fruit characteristics make it a great candidate for grilled meats and rich, spicy flavors. Think sliders with grilled onions and pickles or pulled pork sandwiches with peppers. The Mourvedre, Grenache, and Syrah work to add both complexity and finesse as well as a distinct balance of dark fruit and earthiness.
La Herencia, or heritage, is a salute to Tempranillo, the main red grape of the Rioja region of Spain, and a grape that has excelled on the Texas High Plains. This dry red is mainly Tempranillo softened by blending small amounts of Mourvedre, Syrah and Carignan. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and then oak aged to further soften the tannins and enhance the aromas and flavors of dark cherry, plum and spice.
