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.
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.
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.
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.
Beautifully clear with a pale green-gold hue, this Chardonnay offers aromas of white peach, lychee nut, and Golden Delicious apple with hints of citrus and a slight nuttiness. The wine’s lovely richness is nicely cut by its acidity, creating a balanced wine full of flavor. This wine pairs perfectly with roast chicken, salmon with pesto, pasta carbonara and creamy brie.
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.
While Cabernet Sauvignon has always been an integral part of our Bordeaux style blends, we are thrilled to release our first vintage of a single varietal Cabernet! Elegant, floral aromas leap out of the glass as notes of lingonberry and ripe fig lure you in. Aged 20 months in once used French oak, hints of cocoa and roasted hazelnuts linger long after the last sip. This decadent wine is approachable in its youth yet capable of maturing beautifully over the next decade. The perfect wine to enjoy with loved ones throughout the holiday season!
Our 2013 Stone Tower Viognier is a beautiful expression of our estate fruit in a classic winemaking style, with barrel fermentation and aging in new and neutral French oak barrels.
The Viognier has a straw colored complexion and mouthwatering appeal. The nose expresses aromas of marzipan, poached pear and a bouquet of white flowers, while the supple, full-body of the wine unfolds softly across the front of your palate. With its lingering finish, this wine pairs wonderfully with your Thanksgiving dinner or any special occasion that calls for a food friendly wine. Limited to Tower Cru members only. Maximum purchase of 2 bottles.
