Our 2017 Cinsaut is offered as part of our rare wines series to introduce you to wines that are not normally found as a single varietal bottling.
With ripe red fruit notes and minimal tannins, it is a prominent grape of the Rhône region and Provençal rosés. The 2017 vintage is from the Tallent Vineyards of Mason County, TX. Our single varietal bottling presents a soft light-bodied wine abundant with floral and fresh fruits. The light-bodied nature of Cinsaut demands gentle handling and moderately warm fermentation to retain its bright characteristics.
The final product is a perfumed wine full of bright red berries, pomegranates, peaches, and herbal overtones. 
Aromatics: Dried cranberry, red berries, violets and tea 
On the Palate: Raspberry and strawberry, med/med high acidity, light tannins finishing with mild graphite.

This dry red is light and lively with vivid flavors of fresh fruit which dance on the tongue. Absolutely perfect balance and very enjoyable by the glass or with a hearty meal!

Finally! A Texas red that is light bodied and dry. This should do nicely with a wide variety of lighter dishes and will give me something to say when the subject of pinot noirs comes up. Well done, Becker.
