We're very excited to release our very first Texas High Plains Syrah! This wine celebrates the feminine and earthy side of Syrah, with gorgeous tannins and texture—reminiscent of classic Rhône Valley Syrah, but with its own Texas voice. It's slightly peppery, with crunchy blackberry, lavender, and notes of black cherry liqueur.

Fresh and vibrant, this Cinsault bottling is completely oak-free, which means that the juicy, fruit-forward nature of the varietal is front and center. Ultraripe blueberry and raspberry notes mingle with specks of black pepper on the soft and mildly grippy palate. The wine is light bodied and easily quaffable.
The best wines from the warm, sun-baked Rhône Valley showcase the best of many different grape varieties in one cohesive blend. This Rhône-inspired blend of Mourvèdre, Carignan, Cinsault, Counoise, and Syrah is no exception. Notes of fresh summer cherries, raspberry, blackberry, and lavender lead to a playful palate with alluring complexity backed by black pepper, spice, and soft, yet lingering tannins on the finish. This wine begs for herb-rubbed lamb loin or fajitas from the grill.
A foundational grape for Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, and many of Italy’s great Super Tuscans, Sangiovese has long had a place at the table in the Old World. This was one of the first varieties planted in the late 1960s by Clint “Doc” McPherson, who had a hunch that a warm climate grape such as Sangiovese could do well in the Texas High Plains. Reminiscent of the rolling hills of Tuscany, but decidedly reflective of the Texas terroir, this wine offers aromas of ripe dark cherry, dark plum, and boysenberry framed by dusty earth, powdered cocoa, and dry, savory herbs. The palate reveals an elegant structure with gentle grip and a long, savory finish.
This wine is composed of Cinsault, Carignan, and a dash of Viognier—a blend of three heat loving varieties traditionally found in southern France that are perfectly suited to Texas. Cinsault provides the rich, fruit-driven backbone; Carignan adds tannin and a floral, smoky complexity; while Viognier offers a beautiful tropical fruit character on the nose and textural richness on the palate. A Texas alternative for fans of Pinot Noir.
A dry rosé is the great equalizer: both white wine and red wine lovers can appreciate it; it can be enjoyed year-round; and it pairs with various proteins, from grilled Gulf shrimp and smoked chicken to steak and barbecue. Our "Les Copains" rosé is made from Rhône Valley and Provence varieties—the French regions that made dry rosé iconic. These do well in Texas and demonstrate opulent fruit and aromatics when made into rosé.
