You may know this vineyard from our High Cross Syrah we’ve been producing, but now we bring to you High Cross Tempranillo for the first time! The team was pleasantly surprised with this Tempranillo. We do not work with a lot of this varietal, but when we do, it always comes from a unique part of Texas. This vineyard is owned by super dedicated growers Cam and Erika Campbell and is located 20 miles southeast of Sonora, Texas in low desert, where nobody else is growing in that area.

A richly set ruby tint opens with aromas of ripe berries, herbs & spices filling the nose. Leather tones on the front palate fade to deeply textured ripe blueberries and raspberry pureé, then delicately balanced with silky chocolate tannins and a bright peak at the finish. Elegantly structured.   -Rae Wilson, Certified Sommelier and Owner/Consultant of Wine For the People
