Dry

2019 Le Renard Rouge (Library wine): This blend is a lush and concentrated right bank Bordeaux styled wine. Flirtations of raspberry, blackberry and blueberry intertwine and push forward in this classic higher altitude grown Merlot. Than a black cherry palate orchestrates with a rich oak toastiness. There is just the right oak accent to enhance the complete wine experience. This wine is lush, rich, complex, fine tuned and balanced.

2021 Le Renard Rouge: Le Renard Rouge (The red fox) is our signature premium Bordeaux blend. The 2021 vintage shares delicate aromas of violets, elegant rose petals, blueberry and crushed plum skin.  This is such a lovely wine aromatically that is just so nice to swirl and smell in a big bowl wine glass.  Once sipped, fruit flavors of damsons, blueberry pie and blackberry tart push forward with an outstanding finale of an unsweetened cappuccino froth flavor.

2019 Reserve Cabernet Franc (Library wine): Black cherry, luscious raspberry tones and a deep rich ripe stone fruit build on the aromatics with a subliminal accent of French toasty oak and vanilla. The viscous concentrated palate is focused on thick cherry fruit with flirty nuances of blackberry, licorice and cocoa. A farm grown hand selected fruit wine crafted with family care and distinction.  

2021 Reserve Cabernet FrancOur 2021 Reserve Cabernet Franc is a concentrated wine with deep plum, mature brambles and stewed stone fruits that exude aromatically.  The palate rounds out with further nuances of forest floor, coffee and a slight pleasant tar or chimney soot.  This is an excitingly full, rich and concentrated wine so worthy of Reserve status.

2019 Cabernet Sauvignon (Library wine): Voluminous, lushness, concentrated and focused.  Aromas of violets, ripe plum, blackberry and savory premium oak.  Damsons, blueberry, anise and blackberry all fill the palate.  Then arrived the nice lingering oak finish to just carry on all that enjoyment.  Firm tannins and packed with natural fruit lushness from hand cared for vines.

2020 Cabernet Sauvignon (Library wine): Our 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon features aromas of stewed stone fruits of plum and damsons mixed with tobacco and anise. This is a big wine with firm tannins and flavors of black cherry, blackberry, smoky oak and hints of chocolate truffles.

2019 Petit Verdot (Library wine):  An awesome wine with depth, power and grace.  A big wine packed with boysenberry, blackberry and plum aromas.  Those same fruits carry on the palate while showing nice big tannins and a beautiful delicate sweet oak. And for the finish a nice touch of brambles, cassis and classic low level Bordeaux chimney aromas.

2019 Meritage (Library wine): Concentrated, voluminous, rich, deep and lush ripe fruit characters.  Ripe blueberry, crushed blackberry, plum and vanilla combined with a refined dusty cocoa and pleasing subtle toasty oak finish.   An alluring complex wine enjoyed as each stage of the palate unfolds in layers.  Enjoyable rich ripe fruit range of flavors, palate filling and with very subtle nuances of tobacco and oak.  This is another great Bordeaux style example of our Fox Meadow Wines.  

2020 Meritage (Library wine): An “easier style” Meritage reflecting our softer vintage of 2020. Fruity grape expressions of fresh blueberry and cherry work so well with just a delicate touch of clean oak and a touch of cigar. The fruit really takes center stage. An easy going red wine with silky tannins and a soft long finish make for seamless enjoyment. Silky, lush, smooth and fruity.  

2019 Merlot (Library wine): Lush and concentrated right bank Bordeaux styled aromas.  Flirtations of raspberry, blackberry and blueberry intertwine and push forward in this classic higher altitude growing region Merlot.  Then a black cherry palate orchestrates with a rich oak toastiness.  Just the right oak accent to enhance the complete wine experience.  Lush, rich, complex, fine tuned and balanced. 

2020 Merlot: Lush stewed stone fruits, black cherry and a slight forest floor make this Bordeaux styled Merlot a classic. This is a “big” Merlot with super firm tannins, judicious oak and a certain muscular palate you don’t often see in Merlot. This wine will age but it also is enjoyed now.    

2021 Merlot (Library wine): Aromas of stewed ripe plums, crushed blackberry, a slight chocolate cordial with a nice toasty barrel splash all blend well into this concentrated Merlot. At tasting this Merlot is very soft but also has wonderful granular tannin weight. This is a well extracted Merlot that is firm, big and has a slight earthy flavor complexity. 

Situationally Dependent (New release soon!): Aromas of ripe blackberry, dried strawberry and whispers of premium soft oak are very pleasing.  A light and airy palate show fruits of stewed blueberry and laser focused pomegranate. A smooth finish follows with a blissful balance of sweetness making this a perfect wine for any "situation."  

2022 RoséThis is a solid austere rosé with an aroma focused on grapefruit rind, honeycomb, a deep spring honeysuckle and a nuance of allspice near the back of the aroma. On the palate, this dry rosé has many of the red fruit flavor qualities that make a rose so enjoyable. There are delicate flavors of light blueberry, peach and pie crust.

Sweet

Freezeland Red: A graceful, non demanding fruit forward light red wine with a pristine balance of grape flavor and small soft whispers of tannins.  A blueberry and violets focus on the aroma with a palate that has that ideal easy going balance.
