A sparkling, lightly sweet red wine/cider blend. A crisp, refreshing, juice bomb that's perfect for warm Texas summers or paired with a seared Ahi tuna steak on your balcony.
The nose brings aromas of bright red fruit, hibiscus blooms, and your grandma's cherry pie. The palate will bring you lovely flavors of baking spices like powdered sugar and cloves, black cherry, fizzy texture, and a strawberry fruit roll-up (no, really).

We'll keep it short, but we're very invested in this wine and it invokes a lot of feelings in us. The majority of the blend, the Montepulciano, comes from a vineyard that we spent a lot of time in between Fall of '20 and Summer of '21. June '21 presented a lot of challenges for vineyard managers in the Hill Country (frequent rain). Despite the adversity, we were able to see the fruit through into glass. We're very proud of this wine and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
