Protectors of the Republic of Texas 2017
Deep purple in color with heavy concentration and a fuschia rim. Youthful and high intensity aromas of bramble berries, figs and jam. Non-fruit aromas are gamey and earthen with aromas of cured meat, black pepper and burnt tobacco leaves. This is a dry and full bodied wine. Fruit flavors of sour cherries, black currant and dark plum are present on the palet. However, as the finish approaches it is accompanied by notes of bacon fat, pipe tobacco and cocoa powder. A luxurious and strong mouth feel makes this the perfect wine for beef short ribs, duck and Beef Bourguinon.
