Tasting Notes: The perfect wine for your holiday tables!  Leave it to the French would come up with a style of wine that goes great with turkey and stuffing!  Our winemaker, Tim, has put his own spin on things, of course, and we think you'll love this bright and fruit forward co-ferment of petit verdot and cabernet franc.  Remember though, this is not a bottle to age--drink it now through March, 2015.

2012 Clay Hill Cabernet Franc
Returning to our line-up after skipping the challenging 2011 vintage, this fruit comes from our friends, the Peltons, at nearby Clay Hill Vineyard. Boasting flavor of cherry and black pepper, this is a great wine from a great place.

2013 IPC Hopped Chardonnay
The IPC (short for India Pale Chardonnay), has a pleasing, herbal, lemon-grassy, tropical nose, mostly from the hop influence. The mid-palate is fresh and light, finishing crisp with an agreeable bitterness and tang again from the hops. We think pairing with herbed pan-fried river trout would be sublime.
