When Dave Phinney and Kim McPherson founded Locations Wine, they believed in out-of-the-box thinking. A wine concept that may be summed up in three words: simple, complex and fun.
TX6, a Texas red wine from Texas High Plains AVA ($24.99), mirrors this concept. This is a premier site in Texas with red clays and sandy soils. Varieties indicative of France and Spain thrive here.
This red wine is an exciting blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, Carignan and other Bordeaux varietals.
The garnet-hue in the glass is eye-catching and opens the nose to a bouquet of fresh herbs and ripe red berries. Bright, fresh blackberries, Bing cherries, cassis and plum entice the senses. The palate is long and surprising, highlighting the terrior to produce big and powerful wine.
Pour this sexy selection with barbecued ribs, salty smoked fish and chicken and dumplings.
