2015 San Francisco International Wine Competition
2015 Lone Star International Wine Competition
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 fourth installment in our series, we follow with our Inverno or Winter Merlot.
This is a beautiful blend of High Plains Merlot with a touch of High Plains Cabernet Sauvignon. This Merlot displays everything you would expect to find in a classic New World take on the Pomerol style of Melrot. Though the wine has a goodly abount of tannins, the true delight is in the softer style this wine has, hence the Pomerol like finish.
Wrapped in dark fruits with soft earth and floral notes, this wine will delight all the senses. With this final installment of the four part series of Merlots, we have a collection of wines displaying not just great Merlot but great Terroir as well. We have completed our "Wheel of the Year" in wine and hope you have enjoyed the journey. Drink now or hold for 3 - 5 years.
Inverno 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.
Aromatics: Dark notes of violets, candied cherries and tobacco - playing into notes of toasted oak and coffee.
On the palate: Warm notes of coffee and dried red fruit. Mild pepper on the back palate finishing with dry lingering notes of fruit and tannin.
