2012 was a near perfect growing year in Texas. From this season, we were fortunate to have four outstanding Merlot vineyards producing top quality fruit. As a tribute to them, we have revitalized a Becker original wine series, "The Four Seasons". Our goal with The Four Seasons collection is to represent one of each of our four stellar Merlot vineyards in each blend. For the third installment in our series, we present our Autunno or Fall Merlot.

This is a beguiling mix of the Talent Vineyard's Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. This Merlot displays everything you would expect to find in a classic New World take on the Libournias (Right Bank) Bordeaux. A strong backbone of tannins wrapped in dark fruits with soft earth and floral notes makes this a perfect red wine for a Texas Holiday. We suggest enjoying this wine with friends...so a second bottle will be needed.

The Autunno is perfect to enjoy now. However, it will continue to mature for the next 5 plus years.

Autunno is one of our Wine Club Member Only Wines. Club Member Price is $32.00.
Please call or email us at the winery to place your order for this wine.
