The Texas High Plains is the second largest AVA in Texas, comprising roughly 8 million acres in west Texas, mostly south of the panhandle region.  The eastern border of the Texas High Plains AVA follows the 3000 ft. elevation contour line along the Caprock Escarpment, the steep transitional zone separating the High Plains from the lower plains to the east.  The elevation within the Texas High Plains gradually increases from 3,000 ft. to 4,100 ft. in the northwest portion of the AVA.  This positioning provides an environment of long, hot dry summer days, which allow the grapes to mature and ripen to proper sugar levels, and cool evenings and nights, which help set the grape’s acidity levels.  Grapes and wine have been produced in this region since the mid-1970’s and vineyards here have become the major grape supplier to wineries throughout the state.  There are over 75 Wine Grape Varietals planted in the High Plains AVA, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Grenache, Merlot, Malbec, Dolcetto, Mourvèdre, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, and Viognier.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A wine with distinct black fruit, plum, white pepper, a hint of spice and well-integrated oak.
Winemaker Notes
Texas Cabernet Sauvignons are not forgiving and need to careful attention to detail. We use the same Rockpile yeast that we use for its California cousin and mature the wine in new French oak barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
Ribeye steak, barbeque beef ribs, pot roast, rich, dense pasta with deep marinara, and fantastically with an Arturo Fuente, sun-dried wrapper cigar.
