Nevada is a state in the western, mountain west, and southwestern regions of the United States. Nevada is the 7th most extensive, the 35th most populous, and the 9th least densely populated of the 50 United States. Nearly three-quarters of Nevada's people live in Clark County, which contains the Las Vegas–Paradise metropolitan area where the state's three largest incorporated cities are located. Nevada's capital is Carson City. Nevada is officially known as the "Silver State" due to the importance of silver to its history and economy.

    • Battle of the Texas Tempranillos

      It seems a Battle of Texas wines is a regular event now at Texas Wine Lover. Last year we had the Battle of the Texas Roussannes. Since we had previously done two white wines, it was now time for a red wine. Tempranillo is arguably the signature red wine of Texas, so it was only fitting that the next battle be the Battle of the Texas Tempranillos.
