2012 William Chris Vineyards Sangiovese, Texas Hill Country, $42  (S) – Rating 89

Texas wines have come a long way with William and Chris often leading the pack. Sangiovese does very well in the Lone Star State and this is an excellent example. An intriguing nose of smoke, cherry and chocolate is the prelude to a fruit driven wine with soft tannins and juicy food-pairing acidity. On the palate, flavors of cherry, strawberry, raspberry and campfire smoke complimented by notes of espresso on the finish. Buy This Wine

2012 William Chris Vineyards Trebbiano Toscano, Texas Hill Country, Texas, $30 (S) – Rating 89

This quaint winery in Hye, Texas continues to impress. Think warm sun-drenched afternoon under the Hill Country oaks with a refreshingly chilled  glass of local wine….you get the picture. A subtle nose of Meyer lemon with distinctive floral notes is the prelude to this crisp white wine. The palate is tempted with a blend of Meyer lemon and honeysuckle with notes of orange zest on the finish. Buy This Wine
