    Winemaker Notes

    This wine is a blend of three Rhone varieties, dividing up into two red wines, Carignan (27%), Mourvedre (62%) and a white wine, Viognier (11%). This light body, easy drinking red wine has aromas of cedar, black pepper and dried cherries and other rebellious berry characteristics. The taste of this approachable wine is rich and smoky with a smooth finish. This is a wine made for a man, but perfect for a woman. The approachable qualities in this light bodied red make it an easy match for both people and dishes.

    The McPhersons have been a pioneering family in grape growing and wine making in Texas for over 40 years. The family patriarch, Dr. Clinton A. "Doc" McPherson, is one of the "Fathers" of the modern Texas wine industry. In 1976 "Doc," a Chemistry Professor at Texas Tech University, and Bob Reed founded Llano Estacado Winery in Lubbock, one of the first post-Prohibition Texas winery. Today "Doc" remains one of the state's prime grape growers and was the first in Texas to plant Sangiovese in his Sagmor Vineyard. Kim's mother, Clara, while a professor in Texas Tech's Department of Food Science, established the university's Hotel Restaurant Management degree program. His younger brother, Jon, has been a winemaker in the Temecula area near San Diego, California, for over twenty years. Kim graduated from Texas Tech with a degree in Food Science and then completed the enology and viticulture program at the University of California at Davis. He worked in Napa Valley before returning to Lubbock as winemaker for Llano Estacado from 1979 until 1985 and for Cap*Rock Winery from 1990 until 2007, where he also made McPherson Cellars. Kim and Jon have produced wines together in California under several labels including Il Fratello and Cucamonga Cellars.

    From Alabama to Wyoming, each of the fifty US states produces wine—with varying degrees of success. Many of the colder northeastern states focus primarily on American or French-American hybrid varieties like Concord and Vidal, while Muscadine is the grape species of the warm, humid southeast. In Alaska, grapes are grown indoors in greenhouses; other states specialize in fruit wines, like the pineapple wine of Hawaii. New York and Virginia have thriving wine industries, and New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, Michigan, Idaho, and Ohio are all worth keeping an eye on.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
