Located in the Chihuahuan Desert, The New Blue Mountain Trail Vineyard grows out of the volcanic clay at an elevation of 5,400 feet. Intense sun, dry air and cool days & nights make for a unique flavor concentration. Tasting notes of cherry, plum, tomato, fig, and desert herb with a touch of vanilla and caramel. The beautiful mountain vistas inspired the extraordinary dedication of our winemakers.
We “entertain” agrotourists from around the world who help us trim the vines given the lack of labor force in the Davis Mountains.
The current release of “Heraldic Red” is the culmination of all of this learning. New wines will be coming out soon, including Cinsaut, which we predict will be the Pinot Noir of Texas: high in floral qualities and low in tannin. This would be good for entry level red wine drinker who cannot take the tannins of a highly tannic wine.
