Texas wine made with organically grown grapes

This Viognier is made from grapes from our vineyard by Cap*Rock Winery (http://www.caprockwinery.com/html/wines.htm)

This wine has a floral nose with strong honeysuckle accents. It has a slightly sweet taste on the pallet, but finishes dry. It makes a nice pair with spicy food, but also is perfect for sipping by the pool. This is the first wine produced in Texas labeled as “made from organic grapes.” This is a single vineyard wine from Bingham Family Vineyards.

Becker Cabernet Franc Reserve 2008

Becker Vineyards

This Cabernet Franc is made with grapes from our vineyard and from Cooper Vineyards in the Texas High Plains. The wine was aged 1 year in new American White Oak barrels. slight floral notes, truffles, mushrooms, and ripe raspberries…delicious!

And no, I didn’t write the description. I just copy them from Becker’s web site, but I do love the taste no matter how you describe it. My descriptions just aren’t quite so poetic.
