2017 "Tre Colore"


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.

Description

Tre Colore, or three colors, is named for its blend of three French Rhône varieties grown on the Texas High Plains—Cinsault, Counoise and Viognier— fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel. The Viognier in the blend gives this dry red wine a little extra lift and fruitiness to compliment its bright cherry, berry, and plum aromas. The aromatics on this wine are alluring, with a richness of fruit and earth that begs for the grill, Tex-Mex food, and a football game! The smoke and fruit tones will balance grilled Texas quail or pork, or any sort of barbecue, and you’ll hit a home run with tacos al pastor. Slightly chilled this is the perfect red for hot weather and enjoyable by itself.
