Pedernales Cellars

17 Ped Texas Family Reserve

The Family Reserve is a blend we have been creating for years to highlight some of our favorite lots from some of our favorite growers. In its nature, the blend is nontraditional and this year is lead by Italian varieties with Dolcetto making up the majority of the blend. We’ve added a healthy mix of Teroldego which is a grape from Northern Italy. It’s very dark, inky, and smells like blackberry jam coming into the winery.

Wine Profile

The 2017 Family Reserve is a blend with lots of complexity. You’ll find notes of cassis, violets, bramble, black cherry, cedar, and black liquorice. On the palate you’ll find a full bodied wine with black cherry and black raspberry notes followed by leather, currants, and dried herbs.
We find this wine pairs best with big bold flavors— red meats and steaks would be excellent, as would hearty Italian dishes like ravioli or bolognaise.
59% Dolcetto, 38% Teroldego, 3% Touriga
