Reddy Vineyards Texas Tempranillo 2012 ~ Texas [Jul. 2nd, 2014|03:10 pm]
[Tags|, ]

I brought two Texas wines back from my last trip home. My partner-in-wine refused to drink wine that he knew had once had feet in it, so we tried the Reddy Vineyards Tempranillo.

What can I say about it? It was an onslaught of aromas and flavors; an assault, almost. I enjoy finding two or three scents on the nose, and two or three flavors, when tasting and discussing a wine. This tempranillo tasted like... well, we agreed it tasted like everything. Berries, chocolate, coffee, pepper, figs, tobacco, licorice, rosemary, vanilla... you name it. Same for the nose. I'm not saying it was bad ~ we finished the bottle, and there have been times we couldn't say that. But the wine confused us, to the end.

Later we bothered to read the label, and it confirmed what we already knew: This wine tasted like everything.
