Sing Sweet Things ... Southold Farm & Cellar 2019 Albariño Texas Hill Country
Fruity slightly skunky nose, -- unexpected flinty, salty complex sour taste. Went really well with my mushroom quiche and also with dinner partner's escarole and beans. The acidity really sliced through these savory dishes.

Fall Creek Vineyards

Texas Hill County Grenache Rosé 2020

Fall Creek Vineyards Grenache Rosé 2020, Texas

Happy National Rosé day!

Very light salmon in color, almost see-through.

Pretty strong fruity nose with yellow apples, peaches, citrus and spices.

Medium plus in body, buttery and smooth, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with citrus, lemons, green apples, grapefruits, spices and white pepper.

Tangy finish with limes.

This is a really nice Rosé from Texas. Easy drinking and nicely balanced, with a nice mouthfeel.

A great wine to have all by itself or by the pool. Not bitter, which I really liked.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

100% Grenache grapes are grown on clay and limestone soils.

13% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Becker Vineyards

Iconoclast Texas Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Visiting Fredericksburg TX for a few days. This is TX hill country and has a big winery community. Never tried any TX wines before but found a few surprises here. We tasted at Becker earlier today but not this wine. $30 on the restaurant wine list. Becker wasn’t our favorite stop but it is the only local winery represented on their list. Overall local wines seemed overpriced compared to CA wines. Just realized we had an older vintage (2018) on our last trip from Houston to Anaheim. It’s interesting that most of the grapes used in the local wines come from Lubbock (panhandle) area. Don’t know where these grapes came from, or what varietals are present. — a month ago

Salt Lick Vineyards GSM 2017

Say hello to my first Texan wine.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Gorgeous nose of blueberries, cooked plums, violets, light oak, vanilla, wildflowers, light herbs, spices, tobacco and black pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, vinaigrette, coffee, light oak, vanilla, earth, licorice, spices and black pepper.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and peppercorn.

This is a nice surprise. This GSM blend is drinking very nicely now. Showing a great nose with a nice mouthfeel. Tangy and interesting. Soft and rich.

Good right out of the bottle and a good wine to have all by itself, or with food. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.

Spicy, fruit forward and interesting. A nice porch wine that I paired with cheeses and crackers.

A blend of 60% Mourvedre, 36% Syrah and 4% Grenache. Aged in French and American oak barrels for 18 months.

14% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
