  Cabernet Franc
A versatile Cabernet for food pairings with medium-bodied cheeses, grilled or roasted meats, and rich sauces. Well-balanced with a very rich, ripe tannic structure. Flavors of ripe raspberry with a velvety mouth feel. Floral notes of violet on the nose and a hint of pepper on the finish. Aged in new French oak for nine months.
  Late Harvest Dessert Wine
A lovely red dessert wine with 3.5% residual sugar. Made from a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot in 2007 when we had the good fortune to experience 8 weeks of dry sunny days and cool nights, thus the perfect situation for a late harvest wine.
The Merlot is a well-balanced wine with ripe tannic structure and elegant dark cherry and rich black currant flavors. The wine is barrel-aged for more than twenty months.
  Oak Chardonnay
The oak blend Chardonnay is fermented and aged for seven months in French and Virginia oak barrels and blended with the steel Chardonnay. The result is a pleasing combination of ripe fruit with balanced acidity, toasted vanilla and almond flavors. Pairs well with: poultry, pork, salmon, shellfish, cream-based sauces and pastas
Off-dry with a hint of sweetness, the Rosé is produced by limiting the time the Merlot grape skins are in contact with the juice during the fermentation process. This produces a wine of lighter color and reduced tannins yielding floral characteristics with hints of strawberry and cranberry flavors.
  Steel Chardonnay
The Steel Chardonnay is made from the French Dijon grape clones 95, 96 and 76 and fermented in stainless steel, temperature-controlled tanks. It is a pure expression of the varietal, vineyard site and vintage. The result is a wine with a tropical fruit flavor and crisp acidity. Pairs well with: oysters, clams, flounder and other seafood
  Vintner's Blend
Vintner's Blend is a classic Bordeaux-style wine made from Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes barrel-aged in French oak. The blend was created from the vintner's choice of select barrels. The result is an elegant and well-integrated wine with good tannic structure and ripe fruit.
