Pedernales Cellars Tempranillo 2009 picked Texas Monthly’s Wine of the Month

Patricia Sharpe, executive editor with Texas Monthly, has just named Pedernales Cellars Tempranillo, 2009, as Wine of the Month for March 2011 in her blog, Eat My Words.

Brian Phillips, beverage director and sommelier at Haddington’s in Austin a fairly new Rustic American Tavern serving upscale pub food and an array of hand-crafted cocktails and specialty beer and wine . . . recently served me a glass of this . . . and I was amazed at its full, rounded flavor as well as its levity. (Almost like a Pinot Noir.) It stood on its own as a great sipping wine. This selection is very different than the other Tempranillos we’ve shared in the past, and it’s worth discovering for yourself.
