Texas Hills Vineyard Toro de Tejas 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

When we visited northern Spain in 2007, we saw huge silhouettes of bulls along the highways, so when we created our Tempranillo (the noble grape of Spain) we decided to name it the "Bull of Texas" or TORO de TEJAS and place a copy of the silhouette on our traditional label. Grapes from Reddy Vineyard in Brownfield, taste the full body and rich flavors produced, the tannins are soft with the flavor of dark berries and plum, and just a hint of spice.

Texas Hills Vineyard has always championed environmentally correct ways and works to protect our environment by growing the vineyard in a sustainable organic fashion. This means that we use the least amount of chemicals as the Texas Hill Country will allow. We use turkey compost to fertilize and remove weeds with a mechanical devise called a "French hoe." We are occasionally forced to use a few fungicides, especially after the temperature reaches daytime highs over 90 degrees, and sulfur and copper — our natural fungicides — are no longer as effective.

Medium, red color with a moderate, youthful aroma. Light bodied and dry with fresh acidity and medium tannins. Fair balance with slight high tannins that leads to a long, lingering finish.
