Pedernales Cellars

Texas High Plains Grenache 2020

The 2020 Pedernales Texas High Plains Grenache carries alcohol at a lofty 15.3% abv, but the color is only medium-dark and the mouthfeel is surprisingly light. The nose brings strawberry, raspberry and blackberry aromas, while the palate is rich in red fruit. The tannins are firm, yet the wine has a silky feel in the mouth. Not exactly what I was expecting, but delightful nonetheless. — 4 days ago

Kyla Kuhlken Vineyard Tempranillo Rosé 2019

This wine shows a beautiful salmon orange color, along with a nose of strawberries, an herbal quality and tangerine peel. The palate lays out red cherry flavors laced with citrus minerality and a razor-sharp acidity which really refreshes. It is bold and even brawny, in a way - unusual for a sparkling rosé but entirely welcome. — 16 days ago

Estate Picpoul Blanc 2021

This Texas wine has a nice golden hue and a nose which sports apricots, Meyer lemons, wet-sidewalk minerality, salinity and a touch of lanolin. The palate is just as wonderful, with stone fruit, minerals, spices and herbs. The acidity is as great as advertised. This wine should pair well with seafood, salads or sandwiches - I had mine with a salami and cheese creation on rosemary sourdough and it was fabulous. — 23 days ago

Blend 2 Sangiovese Blend 2018

This bold wine is quite dark in the glass and it offers up a nose of black raspberries, cedar, clove, vanilla and a hint of mint. On the palate, it’s brawny. Big notes of dark fruit mingle with those oak spices in a way that’s both fruity and savory. The tannic structure is toothy, so this wine wants a steak. — 6 days ago

Texas High Plains Grenache Rosé 2021

This pink wine is quite rich in color. Its hue is a cross between salmon orange and copper, looking very much like roses. The nose is a blast of strawberries, green parts and all, with an earthy herbal streak and a line of black pepper. On the palate, the brash rosé comes on like a red wine, with tons of flavor and a refreshing acidity. This wine’s pairing ability can reach from salads’n’seafood territory into pork chops, burgers and cheese plates. — 12 days ago

Sangiovese 2020

Fresh juicy strawberries. Very very pale red with vibrant peachy orange rim. More close to a rose than a true red. Great for summer — 13 days ago

Progression Red Blend

This is Dutchman's Progression 3. This is a dark wine, with a nose to match. Blackberry, black plum, black pepper, leather - it is a fairly brawny aroma package. The palate follows suit, with dark fruit and a savory angle to beat all savory angles. Tannins are quite firm and the wine could probably benefit from an hour or two to breathe. The finish is lengthy and savory. — 9 days ago

Bingham Family Vineyards Trebbiano 2019

This is a very pale Texas wine with a very citric nose. Lemon leads the way, but there is lime and orange peel in play, too. A hint of lemon chess pie floats through the minerality along with an herbal note. The palate shows apricot and nectarine flavors filtering through the spicy greenness of the herbaceous essence of the wine. The acidity is zippy, but not overly so. Pairing this with a cool, green salad this summer is a no-brainer. — 14 days ago
