White and rose wines make me smile, but sometimes a girl needs some red wines to balance things out.
Here are some beauties I have recently tasted:
2012 Duchman Dolcetto — This is a Texas winner! Lush black plum with a hint of raspberry and cocoa. A smooth, medium-bodied dry red to enjoy just slightly chilled. (A Texas Fine Wine made from grapes from the Bingham Family Vineyards)
2010 McPherson Cellars Sangiovese
Made from some of the oldest vines in Texas, this light-bodied red has terrific cherry and cola notes with a hint of violet flower.
This Carménère (member of the Cabernet family) does not disappoint! Dark cherry, plum, cocoa and black pepper notes. Lush and full-bodied.
