It's About the Wine - and the Critics Agree... Voted Best Winery in Virginia
Our blend of classic Bordeaux varietals: 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Petit Verdot, 18% Cabernet Franc, 18% Malbec and 9% Merlot. Smooth, rich and superbly balanced.
2012 Cabernet Franc
This wine opens with aromas of cherries, raspberries and fennel, which translates to the palate with notes of cocoa and sweet cedar wood.
Wonderful hints of peach, guava and white pepper. Creamy honey and apricot flavors linger on the long finish.
