2012 New World Reserve- Library Wine

This Bordeaux-style red showcases our best terroir producing a wine that is complex, round, and silky, with well-developed flavors of toasted oak, black currant, and black cherry. Pairs well with steak, lamb, and hard, salty cheeses such as gruyère.  Limited release for Wine Club members.  Sign in to your account to purchase.

Terroir:

Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Blue Ridge, Virginia. The red varieties were planted on southern exposure slopes. The clay strata includes a significant proportion of rocks (shists from volcanic basalts mainly).

Winemaking Notes:

The grapes are hand-sorted and destemmed, then coldly macerated with their skins for 4-5 days at around 42-44° F (5-6°C). The grapes are then fermented in stainless tanks at no more than 81°F (27°C), with 2-3 pump-overs a day to ensure maximum extraction from the skins.  After alcoholic fermentation, the grapes experience an extended post maceration and malolactic fermentation. The free run and press wines are separated and aged in 70% new and 30% used French oak barrels for about 14-16 months.

Tasting Notes:

The New World Reserve 2012 is a full-bodied Bordeaux-style blend (42% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot) with deep red color. This signature red showcases our best terroir producing a wine that is complex, round, and silky, with well-developed flavors of toasted oak, black currant, and black cherry. This wine is powerful yet elegant.
