Winemaker’s Reserve Red Blend

Overview

Our Winemaker’s Reserve Red Blend represents a unique and flavorful experience. After 8 months of aging in 225-Liter French oak wine barrels, this bold Red Blend spent 3 extra months in 55-gallon Bourbon barrels soaking up the intense flavor of the charred wood.

This Red Blend has traditional wine aromas of dark cherries as well as subtle tones of spice and black pepper. The Bourbon barrels provide a sweet nose of mocha, butterscotch, toasted walnut, with lingering notes of caramel and vanilla. Indulge in the creation of this exclusive Texas wine. Enjoy with dark chocolate or sharp, hard cheeses.

Serve at 65° F in a large bowled wine glass.
