Texas Hill Country

Beautiful bold red wine — 3 months ago

Spicewood Vineyards

The Good Guy Red Blend 2014

Black cherry & tart berry. A little roasted poblano pepper (maybe a little green peppery but not terribly). Some Bordeaux like tertiary stuff like chocolate and a hint of tobacco. Unique stuff outta Texas. — 5 months ago

Orin Swift

D66 Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes Grenache Syrah

2013 vintage does need time to open up. Decanted and enjoyed at JW Marriott Hill Country Resort 18 Oaks on June 22, 2019. Big and bold, over to top dark berry fruit. A touch of coffee on the front, and forget finish. No aftertaste what so ever. — 5 months ago

Spicewood Vineyards

Carignan 2015

A wonderful bold red wine from local TX Hill Country's Spicewood vineyards. — 22 days ago

Perissos Vineyard and Winery

Tempranillo 2016

Smoother than most Tempranillos! Enjoyed it! — 2 months ago

Grape Creek Vineyards

Grape Creek Grand Rouge Sangiovese Blend 2018

Semi sweet red... aerating not needed. — 4 months ago

Southold Farm + Cellar

Don't Forget to Soar White Blend 2017

The best producer in Texas right now - period (and excellent on any stage - read Eric Asimov’s writeup in the NYT). Simple and thoughtful. For a Texas Hill Country porch.

Don’t Forget to Soar is pulpy guava papaya peach nectar. Like a Ceres boxed juice trying to tell you something.

Attaboy @Joe Weinberger Did not love Crowson though which is the other Texas natural wine getting some attention. Have you tried?

I haven’t tried Crowson yet, but I’ve wanted to. The only other natural Texas producers I’ve tried besides Southold are La Cruz de Comal and Saint Tryphon

Amici Cellars

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Well, after suffering through two weeks of soul-crushing illness I’m finally out of the forest of disease and am now in the sun-soaked fields of health & wellness...which in this case is the Texas Hill Country. Feels good to finally be back drinking wine, eating good food, and enjoying some travel. — 2 months ago

Thanks, guys!

@Severn Goodwin Indeed; the heat wave is in the process of subsiding, thankfully. I’ve about had enough of the wretched heat.

William Chris Vineyards

Texas HIgh Plains Grenache Rosé 2013

Handed a glass of this as we walked up to the welcome center. Perfect refreshment on a hot Hill Country weekend! The staff at William Chris are so nice and hospitable. But what do you expect in Texas! The wine is dry with notes of strawberry and a hint of raspberry. Loved it and brought several home to enjoy till we can make another trip back. — 4 months ago
