      4.00 overall score

      Winemaker’s Notes:
      Wine for people who enjoy a robust, rustic wine. The feeling of a cottage in the woods and a campfire.

      The grapes were harvested in September when they had reached 19.6 brix. They were then fermented for eight days in a temperature controlled stainless steel tank.

      Due to this wine’s full body, it is ideally suited with game meats, roast beef or steak. Some specific dishes that we would recommend with this wine would be pastas with tomato meat sauces, pizzas and backyard barbecues.

      3.67 overall score

      Winemaker’s Notes:
      This wine combines the characteristics of dried berry fruit and light cherry notes with fine tannins and vanilla aromas.

      The Chambourcin grapes used for this wine were left on the vine until they had reached 20.8 brix, and the Cabernet Franc grapes were harvested at 21.2 brix.

      A great wine to be enjoyed with friends around the dinner table.
