Tasting Notes: A wonderful representation of Texas Hill country winemaking. Sourced from the Bear vineyard, this 100% sangiovese has a substantial backbone with great minerality, intriguing complexity and wonderful fruit notes of raspberries and peaches. Chill it icy cold and enjoy with a chicken Caesar salad!
Tasting Notes: AVV has been producing rosé long before it was fashionable (2005), and it certainly shows with this release. Using sangiovese as the base gives it a discernibly unique style with subtle color, floral touches on the nose and wonderful minerality. Cold fermentation in stainless steel preserves the elegant fruit notes of watermelon and strawberries. Perfect “P” wine for the porch, patio or pool!
Tasting Notes: A wine that can exceed your expectations. The 2013 took a few minutes to open up, but when it did, it was singing. The aromatics of earth, tobacco and leather were met on the palate with rustic notes of fruit and tannin. I was actually sad when I realized the bottle was empty.

Tasting Notes: Always a solid wine and great value, this new vintage hits it out of the park. Dark red cherry and crushed blueberries fill the mouth with a slightly more modern feel.

Tasting Notes: Finding Morellino can often be tough in some markets, but I sure am glad I found this one. The blend is 90% sangiovese rounded out with 10% cabernet. I’m not sure what cabernet is bringing to the party here, other than to prop the wine up a bit, but the sangio is doing all the lovely work. Exotic aromas of red flowers and rustic red fruits abound from this lovely wine. Subtle mushroom and sweet damp earth also give way to an even-more-enticing taste. The depth of the palate on this wine is broad and silky, with tart-yet-sweet cherry and plum. What a winner on many fronts.
