This delicious red wine treat is a blend of Sangiovese (64%), Tannat (25%), Petite Verdot (11%).   You’ll pick up the lovely garnet color on the rim of the glass as you hold it up to the light. Beautiful, isn’t it? Next, you’ll indulged in aroma of plums mixed with a bit of leather. That’s just the prelude to the rich minerality with a hint of earthiness to follow. Some pepper notes may initially greet you, but wait until you experience the full mouth swirl. There are no misses on these moderate tannins as you experience the full dry textured feel across your palate. This is a great example of a single vineyard blend from Alamosa’s estate vineyard. You taste the richness in their style of wines and recognize what can be achieved in Texas vineyards. This wonderful bottle pairs well with game and beef dishes. Viva la Texacaia!
