Ryan's RedOur 2013 Ryan’s Red is now available in the tasting room! Ryan’s Red has been one of our most popular dry reds since it was first introduced. The 2013 vintage delivers rich aromas of red cherry, balanced fruit flavors and a hint of black pepper on the finish. It goes great with BBQ pork ribs so I’ve included a recipe below that I whipped up the other day.

Ryan’s Red is December’s Wine of the Month. When visiting Arché, Club 228 members can get a bottle of Ryan’s Red, a glass of wine of the member’s choice and a snack, all for just $20 + tax.

Oven BBQ Country Style Pork Ribs

6-8 country style pork ribs
2 cups BBQ sauce

Preheat oven to 300ºF. Place the ribs in a large baking dish and cover with half the sauce. Roll the ribs around to completely coat them. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 3 hours. Uncover, increase temperature to 350 and bake another hour, turning after 30 minutes. Remove from pan and serve with remaining sauce.

BBQ Sauce

1½ Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs minced onion
1 clove minced garlic
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tbs Ryan’s Red
½ tsp Worchestershire sauce
½ tsp soy sauce
½ tsp molasses
¼ cup chili powder
1 Tbs brown sugar
½ tsp mustard powder
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Place olive oil and onion in medium-sized sauce pan. Saute over medium heat until onion begins to soften. Reduce heat to low, add garlic and saute until onion and garlic are soft. Whisk in remaining ingredients and continue to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Arche Roussanne 2012September’s Wine of the Month will be our 2012 Roussanne, a multiple award winner, including Platinum at the San Diego International Wine Competition. Texas High Plains grapes were sourced from the Oswald family vineyard in Terry County, which is south of Lubbock, to create this wine. This wine is “textbook Roussanne that delights with a vivid caramel almond aroma profile that translates directly to flavors on the palate, with great acidity balancing the grape’s typical oily viscosity. It’s long and quite elegant on the finish. 93″ Rich Cook Apr 22, 2014

Our Roussanne is delicious served chilled or at room temperature. It is ready to drink now or can be aged for many years. Roussanne is a rarity in that regard since most white wines do not age well.

Our Wine of the Month offers Club 228 wine club members the opportunity to purchase a bottle of the featured Wine of the Month, a glass of wine of the member’s choice and a snack plate, all for just $20 plus tax. This is really a great bargain that members can take advantage of at each visit to our tasting room.

Sweet Temptation 2012 backBack by very popular demand as our Wine of the Month is Sweet Temptation. Club 228 members can pick up a bottle of Sweet Temptation, get a glass of wine of the member’s choice and a snack plate, all for just $20 plus tax.

Sweet Temptation is a very nice, not too, too sweet, (yes, I meant to say “too” twice) full bodied red with lots of fruit and spice. If you normally drink dry wines, you might like this one as a dessert wine. If sweet wines are your thing, you will want to have this in your cellar for your next neighborhood block party, pool party, or by the fire while we still have chilly nights here in north Texas.

If you come to the tasting room looking for the Sweet Temptation painting by DeShay Pounds hanging on the wall, you won’t find it. It’s been sold. We want to congratulate the new owners and know they will enjoy this beautiful piece in their home.
