Texas High Plains, Texas

Bending Branch Winery

10th Vintage Anniversary Blend 2019

This inky wine has aromas of black fruit - berries and plums - laced with notes of oak. The clove, cedar, leather and earth that come through on the nose are almost overwhelming, but not quite. The palate shows off that dark fruit with a rich backing of mocha, coffee and black pepper. The tannins are quite firm and ready to tackle anything that's coming off the grill. The finish lasts a long time and leaves a fruity memory behind. — 4 days ago

Emerson Brown

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Arrived in Austin today so decided to try BBQ. This place is BYOB, which is hard to find in Texas. It is a food truck operation with a shed that is kind of open to the elements. I suspect it’s in the high 40’s so the wine is a bit cooler than I would normally drink it. This probably impacted my score. — 3 years ago

Tarot McLaren Vale Grenache 2018

Philly natural wine #2. Carbonic Grenache had me dreaming of the carbonic Cab Franc from the Texas High Plains with @Brendan Devine. This doesn’t quite reach that rarefied air, but it’s good. Earthy, spicy tannins, and red fruits. Served chilled, would recommend. — 2 years ago

Another good Texas wine from Liano Estacado. Complex and robust with blackberry and cherry tones. Good with roasted pork with black beans and rice. Great for Christmas Eve dinner. — 4 years ago
