C.L. Butaud Tempranillo - Winemaker Randy Hester was raised in Texas and cut his winemaking 'chops' studying in many of Napa Valleys' finest facilities. This wine is silky, polished, and mouth filling. A perfect balance between ripe fruit and savory influences. Flavors of plum, blackberry pie, pencil lead, and tobacco harmoniously blend with well integrated French oak influence. The rich and silky tannins lead to a finish that is fresh, lively, and persisting on the palate. Best paired with a marbled cut of meat or traditional Texas BBQ.
