Texas Hill Country Wine

True to Texan tradition, this AVA is the second largest certified Viticultural Area in America. With well over 9 million acres in the heart of Texas, it is no wonder that other more specific AVA’s, such as Bell Mountain and Fredericksburg, have been identified as unique microclimates within this blanket AVA. The wines of this massive region, north of San Antonio and west of Austin, range from Bordeaux blends to Italian varietals, as well as cool climate grapes such as Riesling. This is a quality wine producing region and the wines have won numerous awards both at home and internationally. – Description from Appellation America (view original content)

  • Becker Vineyards Prairie Rotie 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Clever and fun play on words. Hard to live up to a true Cote Rotie but does have subtle notes of white pepper. Hints of earth and soil but not quite to the terrior of the classic Rhone syrah. Read More

  • Texas Hills Vineyard Syrah Texas Hill Country 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Preferred over the 2007. Again with dark berries being center stage with black cherry playing lead. Some spiciness with an attempt to mimic the classic Rhone wines. Not bad at all. Read More

  • Texas Hills Vineyard Syrah Texas Hill Country 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Black berries with a nice spiciness to it. Hints of black pepper to the finish. Rhone style that attempts to be old world but a certain fresh berry characteristic shines through. Read More

  • Becker Vineyards Iconoclast Cabernet Sauvignon NV

    Snoothrank:

    This is a great bottle of Central Texas Red for every day drinking. Not threatening, yet satisfying to even the most discerning of palates. Characteristics of intense cherries, ginger spice, and just enough oak to round it out are complemented by a silky tannic structure followed be a soft to medium finish. Read More

  • Pedernales Texas Garnacha 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Slight unbalanced in acidity, this dry rose style Garnacha just didn't do it for me. Should have made another white wine. Sweet with a strong palate of strawberry that is very fruit forward. Read More

  • Pedernales Texas Viognier 2010

    Snoothrank:

    My favorite from the Vineyard when I visited in 2012. I bought a bottle of this to bring home. Very fresh crisp mouth feel. Medium bodied with a burst of citrus and peach and a subtle touch of honey in the background that coat the palate. Very nice balance of acidity with a refreshing finish. Read More

  • Pedernales Texas Muscat 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Hints of apricot, orange, and pear strong on the nose. Balanced acidity and sweetness. New world muscat with an overpowering citrus kick. Excellent pear with a chocolate dessert though... Read More
