EFW Yacht Rock Red Blend

The Austin Winery

Elliott Family Wines - 2019 Red Blend, Texas High Plains, One Elm Vineyard and Nogalero Estate Vineyard

The personal production of our long-time assistant winemaker Travis Elliott.

Traditional bin ferment. Foot-crushed. 16 mos in barrel, french oak (mostly neutral). 6 mos bottle rest. Looking forward to post-COVID prom.

Yacht Rock is a broad blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon from the two best vineyards in our network, One Elm Vineyard and Nogalero Estate Vineyard. I’m happy to hang my hat on this bottle. 

Both Tempranillo and Cab Sauv are headliner varieties, but they share screen time surprisingly well. In looking for comparisons for this wine, Ribera Del Duero is likely closest - on the basis of variety selection as well as climate. Expect blackberry, eucalyptus, cedar, palo santo, fig, molasses, rich body, and moderate tannin.
