Ranger Hays 2017
Ranger Hays first surveyed what is now known as Becker Vineyards in the mid-1900's. Later, he made his profession as a Texas Ranger, reknowned for his efforts settling the Texas frontier. This particular label depicts his famous stand-off at Enchanted Rock against Commanche War Party.
Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Merlot from Texas High Plains and Texas Hill Country vineyards, combine to create a wine as captivating as its inspiration. Beautiful notes of brown spice and up-front rich fruit with a mild dustiness, reminiscent of the Texas High Plains, greet you which open to cherries and florals. The finish is lush, with bright cherries, herbal notes, acidity, and medium tannins.
