The 2020 Reserve Pinot Noir is an aromatic wine that reveals floral notes and excites the palate for the intense red fruit characteristics to come. This wine is medium-bodied with incredible purity of flavor and notes of cherry, ripe strawberry, tobacco, and savory undertones. Fine-grained tannins offer a rich mouthfeel and a velvety finish. This layered and balanced wine offers many years of enjoyment.
The 2020 harvest season was a challenge for High Plains grape growers, most of whom saw a significant reduction in crop load resulting from an unseasonably early freeze in October 2019. This event caused significant bud damaged to vines which had not yet gone dormant after the completion of the year’s harvest. However, the fruit that was produced was of remarkable quality. This reserve bottling is crafted with some of the finest fruit from the 2020 vintage and offers a rare expression of Pinot Noir, a grape often underappreciated in Texas. We aged this wine in a combination of once used and neutral oak for 8 months to maintain its bright and pure fruit character. This wine is best served at cellar temperature (approximately 60 degrees Fahrenheit) and pairs beautifully with fine cuts of meat and a wide range of artisanal cheeses. Approachable now but cellar worthy, drink this wine through 2028. Only 150 cases produced.
