CapRock Tempranillo 2012, Texas High Plains, Texas

CapRock Tempranillo 2012, Texas High Plains, TexasRebecca Murphy, writing in The Dallas News, recommended this Texan Tempranillo made by CapRock, which is owned by the Oregon-based Vineyard Agent.

She said: “This 2012 Tempranillo is certainly a fine example. It has spicy, dark cherry and cranberry fruit with shades of sweet tobacco buoyed with tangy acidity, tightly wrapped in a medium body with dusty tannins. Enjoy it with a marinated and grilled flank steak.

“The spectacular winery that is now CapRock had its grand opening in late 1988 as Teysha Cellars. The winery building, which would be at home in an Italian or French wine region, was a grand, ambitious project for the time. Perhaps the founders should have put as much money in marketing as they did in the facility, because a few years later the project was bankrupt, a fate it has suffered several times since. ”

Price: $11.99
