Continuing my way through some unique TX wines from Ron Yates Winery and Spicewood Winery.
@Delectable Wine : This is the Ron Yates Petulant Natural Sparkling Rosé wine. It was not in the database.
This is my first PetNat wine and this is a head scratcher! Ron advised me to let this get cold for a few days upright to allow the sediment to fall, then carefully and slowly pour/decant. Sealed under bottle-cap, this fizzed only a little bit upon opening. Murky and muddled at first, once it settled in the glass, grapefruit rind and clay covered strawberries. Incredibly fine bubbles. The finish was very crisp, and a bit more strawberries and raspberries came out the longer it was open.
What an absolute treat to try! Many thanks @Ron Yates on helping craft this wine...incredibly cool that TX is making these! — 2 years ago

A beautiful earthy dark fruity Tempranillo. Very drinkable — 5 months ago
@Delectable Wine: This is Ron Yates’ Oso Estrella label Russian River Valley Pinot.
This is Dutton Ranch fruit from Russian River Valley. Ron Yates Winery in TX Hill Country makes this special wine and I was extremely impressed. Very nice @Ron Yates
I opened this alongside the ‘14 Spicewood Russian River Valley Pinot to see how these RRV fruit pinots made by Texans fared against each other. To me, this was the clear cut winner. ABV in this is about 1% higher than the Spicewood (14.1 vs 14.9) but it’s well hidden. Nose on this had more of a fruitcake note alongside bing cherries and cola. Really nice complexity and acidity from start to finish...cedar, rhubarb pie, dark chocolate covered cherries, and a spice box type finish. A lovely RRV Pinot. — 2 years ago

A wonderful, bold, ready-to-drink scrumptious TX Hill Country red wine — 5 months ago
A wonderful bold red wine from local TX Hill Country's Spicewood vineyards. — a year ago
This wine has a long way to go. I may be a little biased but once it opens up a little it's a fantastic young Tempranillo. — 4 years ago
