4.0 Cellars - 2012 Nero D'Avola

4.0 Cellars - 2012 Nero D'Avola

Composition: Nero D'Avola from Comanche County, TX

Price:  $30.00 at 4.0 Cellars in Fredericksburg, TX

Notes:  4.0 Cellars started their own label not too long ago with the partner winemakers taking turns and collaborating on the wines that wear the label.  This one is from Todd Webster at Brennan Vineyards.  It even had the Brennan Vineyards foil.  Brennan Vineyards makes a limited production Nero D'Avola blend called Super Nero, so it was nice to see their experience with this Sicilian grape being used for another offering.  It's also great to see Texas vineyards and wine makers work with grapes that may not be everyday varietals.  This wine showed the dry tannins followed by big fruit usually found in good Sicilian Nero D'Avolas.  Now I know to pick up a bottle of that Super Nero if I have the opportunity.
