Tasting Notes: Dr. Robert Young brings a decidedly scientific approach to the art of Texas winemaking utilizing cyro maceration, whole-berry fermentation and flash détente to highlight his signature varietal: tannat. Rich and bone dry, almost chalky with strong minerality. Black fruit notes add to the deep-inky coloring. Smooth lingering finish makes a perfect pairing for a thick rib-eye right off the grill.
Tasting Notes: This medium-bodied, deep-ruby, almost-purple tannat features aromas of plum and black cherry. Judicious oaking brings out rich spicy notes that pair well with hearty ripe cheeses or rich beef, dishes like London broil, or Osso Buco. Grown on small hillside parcels less than 18 KM from the Atlantic Ocean, which provides a nice maritime influence.
Tasting Notes: This is Bending Branch’s signature red. All high plains fruit. This is a “big gun.” Robust, full-bodied, chewy. Black fruit dominates with a hint of vanilla and smoke. Perfect with beef fresh off the grill. Will only get better with cellaring if you can be that patient.
