    Garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of leather, smoke, berries and cherries. Flavors of berries and raspberries. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied.

  • 2013 Fawn Crest Meritage – USA, Texas, Texas Hill Country (1/22/2018)
    WIML50

    Opened and served immediately. Poured down the drain shortly thereafter.

    Garnet to dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. This wine smelled and tasted absolutely horrible. Your wine should never smell or taste like Sauerbraten. Avoid this wine.

    After recently tasting the Chardonnay from this same winery that smelled and tasted like a cat pee soaked dish towel I’m going to guess there are some material wine making issues at this winery. I cannot recommend this winery at all. (50 points)
