Wine Cup 2015
Semi-sweet blend of Montepulciano and Dolcetto
The prominent Montepulciano in this red blend makes a bounding wine with loads of juicy black cherry, blackberry jam, along lively red cherry flavors from the Dolcetto and Sangiovese grapes. This blend of Italian wine grapes is definitely a fruit bomb. The Winecup has just enough sweetness to balance the firm tannins and to give it a velvety soft, toasty finish.
The grapes were machine harvested in the Texas High Plains and transported to San Saba, where they were crushed and cold soaked overnight. It was then fermented to dryness, and aged in neutral French Oak barrels for two months.
