NV Junkyard Red brings together Tempranillo, Mourvedre, and Syrah coming from both the 2012 and 2013 harvests. The key qualities of the original Junkyard are still present: light-to-medium body, soft texture, and just a dollop of residual sugar for ridiculously easy drinkability. We think this wine's soft texture, gentle spiciness, and juicy cherry flavors are just begging for everyday meals like poultry, barbecue, and pizza. Like the original, it's best served with a slight chill; and, also like the original, this Junkyard Red carries the Texas appellation of origin.
