This rich fruit, with great underpinnings of well-developed tannins, is reminiscent of Old World wines. Harvested from Texas High Plains AVA, this wine is rich with deep chocolate and coffee combined with candied cherries and tobacco to create a full palate wine. 

Aromatics: Cassis, tobacco and hints of fresh herbs and lavender

On the Palate: Dark notes of coffee, chocolate, currant and cherries finished with dried fruits, brown spice, and balanced tannins

OMG. This is as good or better than the 2015. Just received with my wine club shipment. Need to order more before it is sold out.

Tasted at the Main Street Tasting Room and enjoyed it very much. Bottled less than a year ago, I'm going to store for a few years to let it develop it's full potential.

My wife and I had this during a visit to the winery the first week of April 2021. It was amazing. Tastes like a French Bordeaux. Would highly recommend.

Sorry. This wine tasted rather bland. Not the deep taste of my favorite Bordeaux, that buy for $12 at store. Disappointing.

Wonderful! Well developed and full bodied. This was my favorite of all the wines we tried at Becker.
