2013 Dry Rosé  **ALMOST SOLD OUT**
The 2013 is a blend of 81% Chardonnay, 14% Pinot Blanc, and 5% Merlot using the saignee method (bleeding the juice).  This wine shows aromas of ripe fresh strawberries and dry field grass with a hint of caramelized brown sugar. The balance of acidity is so integrated it jumps up and tickles your noise. There are flavors of ripe strawberries, and hints of bing cherry.

2013 CB (White Blend) **ALMOST SOLD OUT**
The new CB is a blend of 78% Chardonnay, 8% Sauvignon Blanc and 14% Pinot Blanc. Both on the aromatics and the palate, the Chardonnay creates a signature of creamy caramel with hint of honeysuckle, while the Sauvignon Blanc adds hints of grapefruit and green apple. The Pinot Blanc shows developing signatures of dry field grass. The CB exhibits a beautifully round mouthfeel.  The flavors are well integrated on the palate with an intense fruit forward direction mid-palate full of passion fruit with a tart and vibrant acidity on the finish. This is our first wine made with 2% residual sugar but the acidity helps to support the finish and creates a round mouth feel. Limited production of just 69 cases.

 

2012 Steel Chardonnay **ALMOST SOLD OUT** 
This stainless steel Chardonnay displays aromas of apple and a faint hint of field hay.  The firm bright acidity on first sip continues throughout the palate giving this wine a wonderful mouth-feel and structure, with flavors of green apple, lemon peel and honeysuckle.  Our maritime, cool climate terroir is evident in the form of a crisp minerality that shines through the finish.

 

2013 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc **ALMOST SOLD OUT**
The bouquet reveals notes of honey and caramelized green apples with hints of honeysuckle and tropical fruit.  There is a round, vibrant, lively and mouth-watering tart acidity with candy green apple notes and lemon peel.  The creamy mouth-feel was created by stirring the lees (the sediment) once a week for four months.  The wine went through a very cold fermentation which helped to capture all of the tropical fruit notes found on the bouquet and palate. Only 65 cases produced.


2011 "5" Red Blend 
This blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc is the perfect easy, light, weekday red sipper.  Dark cherry, cinnamon, anise and a hint of gingerbread waft from the glass.  On the palate, notes of black pepper, dark cherry, nutmeg, smoke, and a hint of rhubarb on the finish.  The mouth-feel is lush and jammy with subtle soft tannins on the finish.  Great with striped bass, grilled swordfish or even pizza and burgers.


2009 Merlot **Silver Medal Winner at 2014 NYS Food and Wine Classic**
This 100% Merlot displays beautiful cherry, fresh eucalyptus and a hint of smoke on the nose.  Full and round on the palate with bing cherry, hints of cranberry and hint of tobacco fill the mouth. The finish lingers at the back of the throat with charred wood and a vibrant acidity.  The 2009 Merlot was aged in 95% French oak and 5% American oak.


2009 Campania Rosso 
This red blend is comprised of 78% Merlot, and 22% Cabernet Franc.   The CR has a beautiful balance of firm tannins and acidity.  The nose displays smoky toasted wood and black fruit and eucalyptus.  On the palate hints of black pepper and a subtle smoke intertwine with black plum and currant.  Aged in New French Oak for over 20 months and aged in the bottle for 15 months prior to release.


2009 Cabernet Franc **GOLD MEDAL WINNER AT 2014 NYS FOOD AND WINE CLASSIC**
The wine was aged 18 months in New French Oak. The nose shows layers of black currant, cherry, slight hint of hay and mossy earthy notes. The palate comes alive with lush, chewy, firm tannins and a bright mouth-watering acidity mid-palate.  Flavors of plum, hints of blueberry, a touch of cocoa, tobacco and smoke unfold with every sip. The wine displays a very dark center when looking through the glass with nice complex legs. The grapes were harvested from a small private 7 acre farm in Southold. The vines are planted North/South harnessing all available sunlight for ripening/sugar development and tannin structure.  The sandy loam soil retains any moisture received, making it available for the roots of the vines during the driest summer months optimizing overall grape development.
