Enchanté is William Chris Vineyard’s flagship wine, having been made since 2008. It is named after the French word because it is more than just a greeting, it is more of an emotion, such as “welcome, please come share my world.” Enchanté actually doesn’t have one solid meaning that translates to English well, hence the sentence used to describe it.  In terms of the wine itself, it is derived from Granite Hill Vineyards in Bell Mountain, which is the sub-AVA of the Hill Country AVA. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from Granite Hill Vineyards has always been a part of Enchanté. This vintage is a bit different than previous, in that it does not have the touch of Hye estate fruit as it normally does because it deterred from the beauty of Granite Hill’s taste. Very cellar-worthy, it should develop nicely for the next 10 years. Enjoy through 2027.

As soon as the first glass is poured, subtle aromas of plum and berries dominate the nose. One sip and the well-structured tannins are appreciated along with black cherry and dark chocolate flavors. When the second glass is poured and a little time has passed since opening the bottle, more interesting aromas can be found.... fig, blackberry, pomegranate and violet. Definitely a wine of complexity that evolves as it gets enjoyed, a wine that can be savored today or in a few years.           -Francisco Martinez, Sommelier, Otto’s German Bistro, Fredericksburg, TX
