2020 Nomini Hall Cabernet Franc
This Cabernet Franc is our first harvest from Strother Family Vineyards, our vineyard at Valley View Farm. It is a medium to full bodied fruit forward red with a distinct round, juicy texture. The presence of new oak is most distinct on the nose, with toasted notes and vanilla. Lots of red fruit flavors like sweet cherry, strawberry, and watermelon dominate the front and mid palates.
This is an extremely versatile wine in terms of food pairing – it has enough body to stand up to red meat, such a lamb, as well as lighter dishes, particularly tomato and vegetable based dishes and veal, duck, and pork.
2020 Magnolia Farm Norton
Previously known as the Oatlands, the Magnolia Farms is our Norton and Chambourcin Blend. On the nose and palate, Norton dominates throughout with its distinct black raspberry flavor and puckering acidity. More of a delicate and lighter bodied red, this wine has a deep, dark purple color typically found in more structured reds.
Pairs well with barbeque, sausage, wild game, and other meats with heavy marinades.
2019 Ten Vines Cabernet Sauvignon
The Ten Vines Cabernet Sauvignon is a well-structured, full bodied red. Cedar notes from the French and American Oak are very upfront on the nose. On the palate, the wine starts with a distinct black currant note, typically of Cabernet Sauvignon. Full on the mid palate, it has an extremely dry finish with lingering tannins.
A very full bodied red – the perfect accompaniment to steak, burgers, and barbeque.

2019 Ten Vines Merlot
The Ten Vines Merlot is a full bodied, fruit driven Merlot with moderate acidity. The nose and front palate both present a lot of red fruit flavors – black cherry, strawberry and plum. The mid palate has a distinct note of graphite, extremely typical for Merlot. Extremely soft tannins linger on the finish.
This wine pairs well with a range of foods, but mushrooms, pungent cheeses like Bleu and Stilton, and pork are excellent accompaniments.
