Don’t Mess With Texas…


…wines.  Was at event and in our goody bag we received a bottle of Texas wine.  Hmmm…I did not know that Texas was in the wine industry.  I just know I love me some Shiner and margaritas!

So, I’ve had this bottle of Texas Riesling (another problem unless it’s dang dry) for awhile and decided to finally give it a try.  It’s from Becker Vineyards to be specific.  I felt like I was about to take the biggest risk of my life.  I paced around the kitchen.  Looked at the bottle, then stared.  Held my breath a few times.  Then finally, put the corkscrew in it.  Ahh, the oxygen hit the adult-level grape juice.

Poured a glass.  The color…gold.  The picture does not do it justice.  Think the goldest of gold Chards you’ve seen.  The nose, sweet, that’s all I can say.  The taste.  Um, yeah, um.  Boone’s is tasting pretty good.  I waited a couple minutes, maybe a white can breathe?  No, this and Boone’s are definitely in the same place.  At least you get flavor options with Boone’s.

Now, checking out their website, this isn’t even around anymore.  They only have ‘dry riesling’, which is sold out?

I know it’s each one to their own, so you can always cast your vote if you happen to have tried this.  But I say Don’t mess with Texas wines, as in stay away.
