Our wildly popular Estate Rosé is back in its fourth vintage! This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc offers wonderful aromas of cherry blossom and fresh raspberries. Enjoyable for red and white drinkers alike, the light tannic structure makes this the perfect food pairing wine!
Our 2014 Windswept Hill leaps out of the glass with notes of ripe cranberry, berry cobbler, and
tobacco. 30% Merlot, equal parts Cab Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon at 28%, and finished with a bit
of Petit Verdot our right bank representation is full bodied yet approachable. A wonderful marriage of
Old and New World styles, the Windswept Hill compliments aromas of dried cherry with mineral
notes of blacktop after a summer rain. Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels, a rich finish of dark
chocolate will leave your mouth watering.
2014 was a wonderful sophomore year for our estate reds, producing Bordeaux style blends that are
complex in their youth while incredibly age worthy with some patience. Our Cabernet Sauvignon
dominant blend is rich in dark fruit as aromas of blackberry, plum, and currant excite your senses.
Secondary notes of cracked pepper and herbs de provence are rounded out nicely with sweet notes of
vanilla bean and floral notes of potpourri. Spending 12 months in new French Oak barrels and 8
months in used, this wine will have the longevity to age for years to come.
The Rosé Cuvée is a blend of traditional Champagne varietals Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay. With a vibrant bouquet of fresh strawberries and pomegranates, the rosé serves as a wonderful aperitif to any meal. Notes of cherry blossom on the palate are complimented with the rich, rising dough components often associated with méthode champenoise. Wonderful with fried oysters and a spicy rémoulade, butternut squash ravioli with brown butter sage, and creamy panna cotta.
With a brilliant pale straw color, this intensely aromatic white exudes bountiful aromas of gooseberry, grapefruit, guava, and white peach. On the palate, the wine has a silky texture balanced by a vibrant acidity and brilliant minerality. This incredibly balanced wine lingers elegantly on the finish.
With one sip of our Wild Boar Viognier, you won’t question why it was named Virginia’s state grape! A nose of peach sorbet and ripe pear tempt you and are complimented by a palate of honey and macadamia nut. The varietal characteristics of this wine can’t be ignored as notes of hawthorne, spring blossom, and gardenia leap out of the glass. You will be charmed by the paradoxical nature of this wine, incredibly delicate on the nose with a rich and luxurious structure allowing it to be an incredibly food friendly wine.
We are thrilled to release the third vintage of our always popular Wild Boar Malbec. Aromas of blackberry cobbler and red rose petal will greet you on the nose, while the palate lures you in with its incredibly soft mouth feel. A bouquet of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg are balanced by notes of vanilla and hazelnut; apparent from its time in French Oak barrels. While incredibly approachable in its youth, with a little patience this wine will continue to develop, allowing greater complexity to shine through.
Our third vintage of Wild Boar Merlot exceeds expectations with rich aromas of stewed plum on the nose complimented by baking spices and black fig. Notes of rhubarb pie charm the palate while the ripe tannins open up on the mid palate leading to a dry finish.
Our Sanglier Noble is near and dear to our hearts, as we’ve been producing this blend since our founding in 2009. A blend of Bordeaux varietals, this Cabernet Sauvignon dominate wine is wonderfully rich on the palate with a lingering finish of dark cocoa and black currant. Aged 16 months in French Oak barrels, well integrated notes of cigar box and nutmeg shine through on the palate. With 21 % Malbec, classic characteristics of lush black plum violets jump out of the glass. Incredibly drinkable in it’s youth, the 2014 Sanglier Noble will continue to develop and cellar wonderfully.
