WIneCrisis, I have been to Dry Comal...and I am very glad you were able to sample the black spanish! What bothered me about my visit was that they said they did not have any black spanish to sample. And I went there just to try it! I have a hard time paying 30+ for a bottle of Texas wine unless I have sampled it first! I have had several other Black Spanish/Lenoir wines throughout Texas! And this varietal grows very well here in Texas! less
I enjoy good Texas wine because I live in Texas.... Hey you hear the phrase "Eat Local" well why not "Drink Local" as well. I love Good reds in the Winter and crisp whites in the Summer.

Some of my favorite varietals are... Chenin Blanc, Blanc du Bois, Torrontes, Chardonnay, Cynthiana/Norton, Syrah, Shiraz, and Cabs and Malbec.... as well as any odd varietal that no one has ever hard of. I actually go through the wine stores looking for the weird stuff that no one knows what it is. Have found some jewels.....

I've discovered a secret -- Missouri wine growers actually have some good wines. I recently returned from a wine tasting trip in Hermann, MO. I found several reds, a white and even some ports that were a tasty treat.
