JM’s 2016 vintage of Louisa is a blend of 92% merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc made exclusively with Margaret’s Vineyard fruit. This wine shows big rich cherry flavors with soft tannins and a lengthy finish. Only 279 cases produced. Enjoy!
The grapes were harvested separately, bunch sorted, de-stemmed and transferred to 1 ton fermenters. Approximately 50% of the berries were left whole and uncrushed. After fermentation, the must was drained of free run juice and the skins were lightly pressed. The wine continued its alcoholic fermentation in French oak until it was dry and then proceeded through Malolactic conversion prior to being racked and returned to barrel. It was left to mature undisturbed for 28 months before bottling.
Our Malbec is intense and full bodied with great balance and fine tannins. Nuances of violets, blackberry, blueberry and pomegranate are balanced by light oak vanillin. Enjoy on its own or pair with beef brisket, lean red meats and blue cheeses.
Corrida is Spanish for "bullfight"
This finely-crafted blend will instantly transport you to Spain, where Tempranillo is regarded as the king of Spanish varietals. A beautiful garnet color greets you with bright aromas of black cherry, toasted cedar, pomegranate and black pepper with hints of baking spices.
This is a blend of Mourvedre, Syrah and Grenache
Elegant and easy to drink. Aromas of sassafras, blackberry, plum, black cherry and spice. Palate is fresh and full bodied, black cherry, vanilla, cola and spicy minerality with smooth tannins and just a touch of chocolate on the finish. A great “go to” summer red.
