Southold Farm + Cellar “Foregone Conclusion” Alicante Bouschet 2017
Region: Texas High Plains
100% alicante bouschet
Winemaking Notes: 50% Whole Cluster, 50% Carbonic Maceration (15 days) with ambient yeast and aged 3 months in stainless and concrete tanks
Fruit forward and fresh on the nose with cassis, just-crushed blackberries and hints of plum.
Lighter bodied and super fresh -- there is a fresh grape quality that you don't find in many wines -- with brambleberry and currants dominating with a savory/umami edge and a minerally raw meatiness on the finish. Not super complex, but decidedly delicious.
