Cabernet Sauvigon


This is the hardest wine for us to make and so far we are pretty darn thrilled with our work.  There are not many sites in Virginia that we feel are well suited to the King of Grapes but we have two such sites.  The main site that we source our Cabernet Sauvignon from is Tranquility Vineyard because of its unique elevation and location in the heart of the Middleburg AVA, allowing a longer growing season than any of our other sites.  The other is just a small block of older vines on the Nevaeh Vineyard’s Hill block with a great south facing exposure, allowing the fruit to hit maximum ripeness.  In the end, it is a Cabernet we love to drink.  It takes you to the past when Cabernet was often well structured, not always heavily extracted and just a pleasure to have around.
