OUR WINES

Cardinal Point red wine At Cardinal Point, our winemaker, Tim Gorman, is the Vineyard Manager as well. With over three decades of experience growing vitus vinifera vines at Cardinal Point, Tim's expertise as a grower shows up in the quality of his wines.

Tim takes great pains to ripen his fruit to the best quality possible... since he knows he'll be the one paying for any shortcomings in the winery! And although he will tell you that the best wines make themselves, he clearly enjoys expressing his creative side in the cellar, as evidenced by our very popular signature blends.

Red
2018 St. Rosé
A remarkable dry, yet fruit forward Rosé, made from 100% Cabernet Franc. The winemaker used stabulation technique to create this truly unique and must-have wine for the summer.
Retail Bottle Price: $23.00 - This wine is not yet available for retail sale. Wine club members can order wine before it is available to the general public.

2019 Frai Rosé
This Cabernet Franc based rosé features residual sweetness thanks to an arrested primary fermentation. That is, the fermenting yeast were kept from converting ALL the sugar into alcohol. While the nose has mineral to Amaretto characteristics, the flavors are over the top strawberry and vanilla. This rosé features a light mouthfeel weight and welcome tartness near the finish to balance the sweet. Bottled fun!

2020 Nouveau Red
Our annual homage to Beaujolais nouveau,this one is mostly from the grape variety Tannat, with a little Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It's a little petulant with CO2 from having just completed carbonic maceration and fermentation. The Nouveau is meant to be drunk a little chilled and consumed early, but this one should last in the bottle for awhile, too. The past few vintages are still tasting great and fresh.

2019 Rockfish Red
Bright, pretty garnet color. Aroma and flavor of Bing cherries, some strawberries, and even raspberries and cream. There's a silken mouthfeel. The round mid-palate is loaded with fruit and transitions to a smooth tannic finish that subtly increases, making you crave another sip.

2019 Cab. F. + Vio
Co-ferment of Cabernet Franc and Viognier. Red berry fruit with hints of apricot and black peppercorn. This was barreled for a year in French oak. Try it now, or lay it down...this is another wine that will really improve in the cellar.

2019 Aubaine
After a very long absence, our steel fermented and aged Chardonnay is back! This vintage is Chablis-like: Firm acid and flinty mineral notes tie this clean and elegant steely wine together.

2019 Green
This vintage returns to the original concept for our Green: 50% Petit Manseng and 50% Chardonnay juice, co-fermented, for a crisp, fruit-driven, dry wine. This year, however, both components of the wine were processed using stabulation, a pre-ferment process which pulls out more tropical tones from the fruit. Pair with cheese plates, summer salads, fried or spicy seafood.

2019 Chardonnay
100% Chardonnay, aged in older French oak barrels for a modest amount of time, our Chardonnay returns after taking the 2018 vintage off. The wine is dry and complex, featuring flavors of citrus, quince, and baked apple, with an interesting grassy component and great acidity for a clean mouthfeel. Toasted oak and vanilla peak near the finish with a lingering minerality on the end.

2019 Hopped Chardonnay
This unique wine made with Chardonnay and Nelson Sauvin hops has a pleasing, grassy, tropical nose in the style of the New Zealand Sauvingnon blancs after which the hops are named. Lots of fruit through the mid-palate leads to a lovely mineral finish. Drink well-chilled. It will pair great with seafood (oysters in particular!) as well as cheeses, sushi and front porch conversations.

2019 A6
Our winemaker's signature blend of Viognier and Chardonnay. The Viognier is barreled and the Chardonnay kept in steel to achieve length on the finish. Unlike past vintages, this Viognier was fermented on the skins (think orange wine), which has resulted in more depth and body. This one drinks well now, but will continue to develop and improve in the bottle!

2019 Quattro
A delicious blend of Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, Viognier, and Traminette. Apple and pear flavors with a refreshing finish.
