Tasting notes


Estate grown fruit with Cabernet Franc predominant, harvested late.  Fermented separately by variety and clone.  Aged 12-14 months in French oak barrels before final blend.  A medium bodied wine with a lingering finish, classic right bank Bordeaux style blend.

* 100% Estate Grown Fruit from the Middleburg Virginia AVA

Production notes


We had the good fortune of enjoying a very good growing season in 2019 in both quantity and certainly in quality.  It was a warm, sunny season without the interference of too much rain at the wrong time.  This allowed for good, clean, fully ripe and flavorful fruit to be delivered to the cellar.  Of the four red wines that were produced from the 2019 harvest, this Trellis blend is the most Cabernet Franc dominant.  As is usually the case, the Merlot was the first red variety ready to pick: the various clones and vineyard blocks were brought in between September 10th and 18th.  Later came the Cabernet Franc, between September 26th and October 10th.

Pairing with Food

The lightest of our red wines, Trellis is easy to pair with most dishes, but truly shines when enjoyed with earthy favorites like mushrooms, rustic tomato sauces, and roasted red peppers (or roasted vegetables in general).

"An expressive nose of wild berries, grated nutmeg, coriander and cigar box. Medium-bodied with soft tannins. Woody spice mixes with fresh red berry fruit. Allspice and cedar at the Finish...Better in a year. Best after 2023."
