McPherson Cellars La Herencia Red 2014

$14.99 (PA tax not included)

“La Herencia,” means “The Heritage.” This is a Texas wine with a Latin heart, a nod to the Spanish pioneers and settlers in Texas’ rich past. Based on the Spanish grape Tempranillo, and including a kitchen sink of four other red grapes, this is a bold, spicy and accessible red wine blend that surprises all who try it. Texas is making some great wines and this one will make you a believer.
