What Constitutes a Fall Wine?

Wine is a drink that is typically categorized by season. Fortunately, fall brings about many elegant flavors for wine lovers in Dallas, Texas. The most popular wine trends during the season are:

  • Full-bodied whites
  • Light-bodied reds
  • Medium-bodied reds

These different types of wine are enjoyed at this time of the year because the bodies and flavors go well with the cooler Texas weather and the fall foods that everyone enjoys as summer fades away.

Pinot Noir

A Pinot is a treat in a wine bottle. With flavors that range from sweet, hints of vanilla to the tang of Blackberries, it’s really no surprise that Pinot Noir is the most highly prized wine in the world. People enjoy this win for the subtle taste that it brings to the taste buds when paired with the right meal. Most Pinots are created with:

  • Cranberry
  • Cherry
  • Raspberry
  • Vanilla 
  • Clove


Merlot is actually contrary in color to the lighter wines that most people enjoy this season. This is a dark wine made from Merlot grapes. Merlot wine has a blueish hue that makes its color quite unique. Actually, the name of the wine stems from “Merle,” which is the French term for the blackbird. this wine treats the palate to flavors of plum, chocolate, herbs, and cedar. The taste of a Merlot is typically bolder than the average fall wine. However, this taste would pair excellently with a rare steak or wild game.

Sparkling Wine

Sparkling wine is definitely the more light-hearted selection when it comes to enjoying a bottle of wine. These types of wines are usually white or rose. With their sweeter, lighter taste, as well as carbonation that adds some extra character, these wines really serve as a tasty starter wine or something to enjoy with a chocolate dessert.
