Pedernales Cellars - Texas Ruby
Price: $39.99 at Pedernales Cellars in Stonewall, TX
Notes: Cooler weather makes us think its time to open a Port-style wine, and this is a nice one from Pedernales Cellars. Dark fruit, cinnamon toast, and vanilla on the nose. Flavors starts with fig preserves, cherry cordial, followed by lingering spice. Some heat from the 18.5% alcohol. 3.5% residual sugars, enough to make things nicely balanced but not overly sweet. It looks like they are out of this one right now, but hopefully it will return to their offerings.
