2004 Grape Creek Vineyards “Bellissimo”, Texas Hill Country
Tasting Notes: “Super Tuscan style” blend, Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, 13.8% ABV. I was extremely pleased to see this Texas Hill Country wine perform so well, especially since the region is so dear to my heart. A brilliant, clear, ruby red in the glass. An elegant nose of spice, bright red fruits, raspberry, wintergreen, and mild oak. Fruit-forward and juicy in the mouth with a silky smooth texture up front, followed by sweet tannins, a great balanced acidity, good alcohol, and flavors of blackberries, black cherries, milk chocolate, and vanilla. An overall well-integrated wine.
Rating: 15.5/20
Price: $22.95 @ Grape Creek Vineyards
