Landon Winery Wine Club pick up for Aug 2012

19 Aug

It is summer in Texas and that means the heat is on. When the phrase “dog days of summer” it was meant for Texas. Today the alignment of the moons, stars and solar systems must have had a hiccup because it was a very pleasant day to be out and about in North Texas.

So we capitalized the mid-morning heading out to McKinney for a lunch treat to one of our favorite burger joints called the Square Burgerright on the city square. After filling ourselves up on fresh organically grown food and free range beef and lamb, we make our way to one of our favorite spots to sip on some Texas wine.

This month is wine club pick up month. Well it was at the first of the month and we were a week behind getting up there. The club selected wines this time was red, Landon’s 2010 Meritage Reserve. We did not take a taste this time, but chose to enjoy the noon day spring like weather with a glass of Landon’s 2010 Pinot Noir for my wife and a nice glass of the 2010 Tempranillo Reserve. The 2010 Tempranillo Reserve won the Silver medal at the 2012 Lone Star International Wine Competition. The grapes were grown in the Texas High Plains from the Bingham Family Vineyards. This wine I found a truly great red wine for summer with cherry and plum flavors and a nice balanced tannic finish. I think I got more of the dark fruit than the plum. Then again my pallet is not of the professional level. I think this just might be my new favorite summer drinking red wine.
