Autunno Fall Cab-Merlot 2014

In an effort to continue the Becker Vineyards wine series, La Quattro Stagione, we are honored to share the 2014 Autunno. This vintage represents our relationship with three long-term growers: Tallent Vineyards from the Texas Hill Country along with Diamonte Doble Vineyards and Reddy Vineyards from the Texas High Plains. The terroir from both regions fuses together, resulting in a well-rounded Bordeaux-style wine.
The 2014 Autunno is a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. Great care went into selecting the fermentation yeasts in an attempt to highlight the specific terroir. The wines were then fermented in warm temperatures, creating more intense color and tannin extraction. Individually, these wines were aged, on lees, in French and American oak barrels for two years, undisturbed. The long sur lees aging matures into wine with an intense, full mouth feel with a lingering finish.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot combine in vivid notes of deep red fruit, violets and roses enveloped in plush tannins.
Drink now or age 7-10 years.
