We are sourcing our grapes from the regions which have strong reputations for producing excellent wines as evidenced by our current portfolio of wines from Texas and California.
We use the saignée (from the French word for “bleeding”) method to produce our Rosé using both Sangiovese and Mourvedre grapes from Bingham Family Vineyards in the Texas High Plains. After soaking on the skins, juice is removed and fermented separately, yielding a rosé-style wine with tart cherry, strawberry, and earthy notes.
We age our Cabernet Sauvignon in both new and older French oak to allow proper maturation and complexity. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is rich with dark fruit and hint of bell pepper on the nose. The black cherry, black currant, leather, and tannin melt over the palate.
Cabernet Sauvignon is a challenging grape to grow in Texas, however, the Texas High Plains exhibits cool enough evenings during the growing year to support proper ripening. We source our Cabernet Sauvignon from Paka Vineyards and produce a wine with distinct black fruit, plum, white pepper, a hint of spice and well-integrated oak. While this Cabernet Sauvignon is a pleasure to drink now, it will age gracefully for years.
Mourvedre originated in Spain and is well known in France as the “M” in GSM blends. Mourvedre has also been found to do particularly well in the Texas High Plains where we source our fruit from Bingham Family Vineyards in Meadow, Texas. Our Mourvedre is deep and rich, exhibiting blackberry and spice, with an earthy, dark-fruit nose.
Sangiovese is an Italian grape that has found a home in Texas. Our Sangiovese is harvested from Bingham Family Vineyards in the wind-swept Texas High Plains. We age our Sangiovese in French Oak for nine months to allow the wine to mature gracefully and round out its earthiness and complexity. This reveals the fresh fruity flavors of tart cherry and spice with a hint of strawberry on the nose, and medium tannins.
Tempranillo is the main varietal grown in Spain, however, has found a home in the Texas High Plains. We source our fruit from the carefully managed Bingham Family Vineyards in Meadow, Texas. Tempranillo produces a red, translucent wine with hints of cherry, strawberry, plum and a soft, leathery finish.
