Notable Wines

Saudade

Our Saudade (pronounced So-dah-jay), is a masterful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. This old world Bordeaux style wine is the synthesis of five decades of tending vines and making wines in the Lake Erie AVA. It is round and exceptionally well-balanced with firm tannins and a multi-layered flavor profile including notes of blackberry, black currant, anise/fennel, tobacco leaf, olive, and subtle vanilla, with medium-full body and a velvety mouth feel with a luscious oak-fruit balance.

Cabernet Franc

Consistently one of our best varietals, our phenomenal 2013 vintage was honored as Pennsylvania’s Best Wine, and we think our version from the great 2016 vintage will be even better. Deep base notes of raspberry, capsicum and mocha open up to aromas of crushed herbs and cedar. Rich complexity and subtle tannins have developed from 10 months aging in new premium French oak barrels.

Dornfelder

Double Gold Medal Winner at the 2019 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Our Dornfelder was aged in both French and American oak barrels, boasting hints of rich berries and aromatic spices.
