PERFECT RED to pair with Valentine's day dinner of grilled steaks or chops and veggies.
Elliott family wines - 2019 Red Blend, Texas High Plains, One Elm Vineyard and Nogalero estate vineyard
The personal production of our long-time assistant winemaker Travis Elliott.
Traditional bin ferment. Foot-crushed. 16 mos in barrel, French oak (just a liiiittle oak). 6 mos bottle rest. Looking forward to post-covid prom.
Yacht rock is a broad blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon from the two best vineyards in our network, one elm vineyard and Nogalero estate vineyard. I’m happy to hang my hat on this bottle.
Both Tempranillo and Cab Sauv are headliner varieties, but they share screen time surprisingly well. In looking for comparisons for this wine, Ribera Del Duero is likely closest - on the basis of variety selection as well as climate. Expect blackberry, eucalyptus, cedar, palo santo, fig, molasses, rich body, and moderate tannin.

About the Winemaker
Travis Elliot is a longtime assistant winemaker at The Austin Winery. EFW wines are currently created through their collective program, where Travis is able to source and create a wine with full individual creative freedom.
US Natural Wine ships once a week, every Wednesday. All orders should be placed by Tuesday at 10am in order to be picked up from our distributors and out on Wednesday's delivery truck.
Shipping cost is 18 bucks a box (up to 12 bottles) so we highly encourage picking up more than 1 bottle for the best value!
At $18, we have some of the most competitive shipping rates compared to other low-intervention wine e-commerce, which can range from $20-$25 a box. Ultimately, we eat the cost of shipping more often than not because wine can be damn heavy. As a small business, we are simply unable to offer free shipping. We can't thank you enough for your understanding!
