Le Quattro Stagione
Our most recent release in Le Quattro Stagione series is the 2016 Autunno, honoring the Texas Hill Country AVA, our own Becker Estate Vineyard and our good friend and grower, Drew Tallent. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot evokes a well-rounded Bordeaux, with complex maturity and character. It opens with vivid notes of florals and full fruit, followed by soft, rich tannins balancing the acidity, creating the warmth and depth of a sophisticated wine.
Aromatics: Raspberries, rose petals, violets, subtle tobacco
On the Palate: Ripe black currant, plum, cloves, tea and soft tannins
Enjoy now, age 5-10 years.

Really a nice smooth blend. Can detect the fruit with a nice aftertaste. An OMG wine

Your Autunno is a bit pricey, but it certainly delivers with its excellent nose and smoothness. We enjoy this wine with Rack of Lamb.
