The Story:

Our friends at Diamante Doble have begun to supply us with Montepulciano grapes to supplement our Estate bottling.  This blend of Estate Grown Montepulciano and Texas High Plains Montepulciano is ready to drink upon it’s 2020 release date!  

The Tasting Notes:

The 2016 Texas Montepulciano is comprised of grapes from the Texas Hill Country & the Texas High Plains.  It is lighter than our previous 2015 Montepulciano.  Much of the difference in weight can be attributed the different barrels each wine was aged in.  The 2015 was aged in Hungarian Oak, notorious for its ability to increase mid-palate.  The 2016 vintage was aged in Russian Oak, an oak known for its sweeter aromas and elegance in the mouth.  The black cherry notes and rustic old-world style remain in both vintages!
