Winemaker's Notes

Our Super Texan is an intense, dry, medium-bodied red wine. A subtle smokiness weaves through the aromas of bing cherry, plum and
blackberry that are highlighted by notes of warm vanilla, spice and cassis. This dark ruby colored wine opens as it breathes and is a perfect accompaniment for classic Italian dishes, smoked duck, grilled steaks and Texas BBQ. This is our signature wine and exemplifies the best that Texas has to offer.
