Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of vanilla, coocnut and baking spice. Flavors of cocoa, whisky and dark fruit.
Vineyard Notes
800' elevation. Soils consists of clay and shale.
Production Notes
Norton grapes picked very ripe and fermented in tank. Fermentation arrested with 190 proof brandy to preserve sweetness. Pressed, settled and aged in new and used whisky barrels for 18 months.
Winemaker Notes
2014 was a good growing season in Virginia with consistently warm, dry weather throughout the season. The fruit came in with good phenolics and balanced chemistry. Red fruit came in with small berries, due to the lack water, resulting in rich, tannic wines. White fruit came in with excellent flavor development.
