2016 Corotoman

2016 Corotoman

A Virginian Meritage-style blend. Corotoman is a blend of 42% Cab. Sauvignon, 33% Cab. Franc, 21% Merlot, and 4% Petite Verdot. Hints of both red and black fruit lead from the glass followed by a hint of earth, char, and a sweet vanilla note. The palate is full of cherry, blackberry, cassis flavors with notes of plum and violet underneath. The wine features a refined tannin structure along with a solid core of acidity down the center of the palate that keeps the wine fresh and focused leading to a supple finish which lingers nicely. This wine makes great company to New York strip, smashed potatoes, and steamed asparagus.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2016 Corotoman is our version of a Bordeaux blend, consisting of the best barrels made from our property. We are very proud of this delicious blend which features layers of aromas on the initial nose. Hints of both red and black fruit lead from the glass followed by a hint of earth, char, and a sweet vanilla note. The palate is full of cherry, blackberry, cassis flavors with notes of plum and violet underneath. The wine features a refined tannin structure with well-integrated oak and fruit tannins. There is a solid core of acidity down the center of the palate that keeps the wine fresh and focused leading to a supple finish which lingers nicely.
