Pedernales - 2008 Texas Tempernillo - Stonewall, Texas

Barbara rates this wine 3 out of 5 stars.
Calvin rates this wine 4 out of 5 stars.
Danae rates this wine 3 out of 5 stars.

Boquet: We smell mostly oak with a hint of berries or cherries
Sweetness: Medium dry
Flavor: Pedernales claims that this wine was aged for fifteen months using new French and American oak barrels and it certainly has a strong oak taste taste at first, but the flavor develops into vanilla as it lingers on your tongue after you swallow. We taste well devoped tannins and a moderately spicy finish.
Pairing: This wine would taste best with red meat, but we enjoyed it with spicy pork ribs.
ABV: 13%

Notes: Pedernales indicates that they made this wine using fruit from the Texas High Plains and Hill Country. We visited Pedernales during our vacation in Fredericksburg, TX and we really enjoyed the experience. We enjoyed tasting most of their wines and we ended up buying many bottles so that we could enjoy them and blog about them later.
