Flat Creek Estate - 2014 Super Texan

Flat Creek Estate's Super Texan won Double Gold at the San Francisco International Wine Competition back in 2003, a first for a Texas red wine.  This provided a launching pad for Flat Creek Estate's wines and brought a lot of positive attention to the Texas wine industry.  Following the style of a Super Tuscan it is predominately Sangiovese, with Caberbet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Syrah in the blend.

Lots of dark cherry and spice on the nose;  On the palate it starts with blueberry and blackberry, followed by some oakiness and spice, dark fruit and more spice on the finish.  Medium body, medium-plus tannins, and acidity.  13.7% ABV.

Composition: 94% Sangiovese from Flat Creek Estate & Lepard Vineyards, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon from Newsom Vineyards, 1% Syrah from Flat Creek Estate, and 1% Zinfandel from Diamonte Doble Vineyards

Price:  About $18 at HEB.
