Semi sweet red... aerating not needed. — 2 months ago
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. — 3 months ago
Regan Meador uprooted his Long Island operation and moved it to Texas after permit battles over a tasting room. The second chapter would focus on grapes grown best in the Texas Hill Country. In this instance, Mataro and Dolcetto. This is an important turning point for Texas wine - not on the wave of sweet jammy reds or unremarkable rose’. Relying instead on place and time.
If gamay would ripen a bit, it would be this blend. It has a crimson brick color and piney red berries. 100% stem inclusion. The Dolcetto gives a dark dried fruit flavor profile. Raisins and dried bing cherries. And fresh salty minerals. — 5 months ago
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. — 10 days ago
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. — 4 months ago

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. — 2 months ago
I agree with @Mark Flesher in how this will hold, and improve, for quite a while, which is so impressive for TX fruit! This wine is more savory and herbal than most other white wines. In fact, the aromatics here remind me of some blonde or wheat beers. Hay/grassy/wheaty note with herbs and crushed limestone. Acidic backbone. Grilled lemon, more crushed rock/mineral, and additional hay/straw. Another impressive TX wine from Kuhlman. — 5 months ago
