2018 Red Blend "Triptych"
We have been asked since our conception, "When will you conceive a red blend?". From the beginning of Tryphon, Silouan has conceived his project as one of reverse-enginnering Texas wine: start by understanding varietals and terroir in Texas. Know yourself; know your terroir.
Triptych is the first manifestion of of this almalgam. 60% Aglianico, 20% Tempranillo, 20% Cinsaut, from three distinct Texas High Plains sites. A complete dereliction of duty if it wasn't for its intentionality. Aglianco-native to Greece but new homeland in Italy, Cinsaut-part of the pantheon of Rhone varietals, Tempranillo, the stalwart of Rioja and Ribera del Duero in Spain-fused together with gracious intention upon Texas earth. This is not some unfocused blend. This is juicy ALIVE Texas wine, taut enough for BBQ and broad enough for Filet. Know yourself; love this wine.
