When crafting the 2017 Reserve Tempranillo, it became apparent we had in our hands two very distinctive Tempranillos, from the Jet Wilmeth Diamante Doble vineyard and Farmhouse Vineyards. Blending the Tempranillos with 10% Touriga Nacional from Six Harts Vineyards, we've created a traditional rendition of an Old World Tempranillo. Layers of cherry, dried herbs and cedar compliment the palate's red fruits of cherries and currant, then finishing with soft black pepper and fresh tobacco. 

Aromatics: Cherries, figs, toasted coffee, dried herbs

On the Palate: Currant, cherries, fresh tobacco leaves, toasted oak notes

Enjoy, age 5-7 years

Same with the above reviewer. I'm more of a white wine drinker, but this was amazing.

Our very favorite with Tex Mex . Try to keep a stock on hand, but it goes quickly.

This is one of my favorite wines. Absolutely phenomenal Tempranillo! I grew up in the California wine country and Becker Vineyards can compete and beat them all!

I’ve never been a wine consumer, especially red wine, this was fantastic. Extremely enjoyable from start to finish. Will be a regular for me.

I have had the Becker Tempranillo several times before but I was not pleased with this 2017 bottle. We have relegated the balance of the bottle for a cooking wine.

Still our favorite, although not as much pepper finish as prior vintages.

We love this wine. It is a permanent favorite of my husband, who loves the peppery finish. We find it goes well with just about anything.

This is by far my favorite Tempranillo. I love its color, aroma, and full bodied taste without being overpowering. Way to go, Becker, for making such an excellent wine with Texas grapes!

Dark color and loaded with chocolaty cherry fruit, with some smokey tones. . Balanced acidity and the tannins are soft. Nice medium to long finish.
