Varietal Definition
This red-fleshed grape is a popular variety in Texas, where it is sometimes blended with Ruby Cabernet to make red table wine. It is highly resistant to Pierce’s disease, which makes it a good match for the hot and often humid Texas climate. It thrives best in deep, sandy soils. Originally, Black Spanish was used as a wine at Communion. At one time, along with Mission, Lenoir was one of Texas’s most planted varietals. Acreage in the state is now on the decline, although it still maintains a presence in the state, particularly in the few wineries located near the Gulf of Mexico.
