Winemaker Tasting Notes
Red Wine Blend
The ultimate goal of a blend is to bring together the best of everything, and that is especially true of our 100 Percent Red Blend. Karen started with her favorite grape — Cabernet Sauvignon — because of its richness and complexity. Petit Verdot to add tannins, colors, and flavors plus the aromatic qualities of dark fruits and florals. Malbec gives the wine complexity and softens the mouth feel. Finally, intense Teroldego grapes complete the blend and enhance the depth, darkness, and color of the wine.
Our Sauvignon Blanc begins with a Musque clone grape because if its pleasing aromatics and low acidity. When harvested, the fruit is immediately put on dry ice to allow for slower fermentation and then aged in stainless steel tanks, which adds texture and gives the wine a creamy mouth feel. The result is a Sauvignon Blanc with plenty of fruity notes and a crisp taste.
Our moscato is our most aromatic wine. The wine has great stone fruit flavors of fresh peach and apricot plus floral notes of orange blossoms balanced by a little sparkle. Our moscato has a mix of sweetness and acidity that creates a great balanced wine. Enjoy it chilled with loved ones!
