The drawing-rooms of one of the most magnificent private residences in Austin are ablaze of lights. Carriages line the streets in front, and from gate to doorway is spread a velvet carpet, on which the delicate feet of the guests may tread. The occasion is the entrée into society of one of the fairest buds in the City of the Violet Crown.
This Texas blend is predominantly comprised of Merlot sourced from the Texas High Plains, a region with enough altitude to free grapes from scorching Texas heat, and generate gentle juicy watermelon notes, with hints of black pepper. Dark, rich and chalky Malbec help minimize edgy tannins and leave a more refined, velvety mouthfeel.
While Malbec has found a new fan base obsessing over Argentine production, Merlot has long carried the load in red blends without enjoying much credit. This wine is a salute to hard-working individuals who don’t need all the fanfare or selfie-likes. A true Texas Work Horse.
