Bloom – a Dry Rose: The first impression begins with the floral nose, opening up to a taste of cherries, rhubarb and cranberries. With a nice feel in the mouth, a soft finish and a pleasant lingering aftertaste, this delightful sipping wine is sometimes described as “a bouquet in a bottle”.
Dry Vidal: A dry white wine that expresses itself with a little tannin and oak on the sides of the tongue and a smooth finish. The minerality of our Missouri terroir is present. Many prefer this white wine served near room temperature for more flavor, but it may also be chilled.
Dry Vidal – Oaked: This variation of our Dry Vidal was aged to experience more American Oak in the flavor.
Dornfelder: A dry red wine with a little tannin mid-palate and a smooth slightly smoky finish. This soft, inky dark red wine pairs nicely with cheeses, olives, and hummus. A good option for “I think I will have a glass of red wine tonight.”
Chambourcin 2013: A nice dry red wine with pleasant structure and a smooth finish. The nose carries a little smoke and there is a hint of spiciness, especially black pepper, throughout the taste. There are nice tannins mid-palate with a smooth, lingering pleasant light tobacco finish. Enjoy with any red pasta dish or with strong cheeses and summer sausage for a picnic.
Chambourcin 2014: A fruit forward full body dry red wine. The nose introduces you to the taste of dark plumb and dark cherries which accompany the first sip. Although a dry wine, many who normally lean towards sweet wines enjoy this wine because of the fruitiness. It is a nice wine to serve around the holidays, especially for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner.
On A Lark: For our newest wine…we went “on a lark” experimenting with various blends. This spicy and fruity light wine was the result. Since it seems to appeal to so many different palates, we envision it as a good wine to share with others. Another good choice as a holiday wine for Thanksgiving and Christmas since it pairs so well with turkey and a wide variety of other foods.
Cabernet Franc: A smooth dry red wine with nice tannin structure and a touch of oak on the sides of the tongue. There is a hint of leather in the middle. This wine is intentionally non-filtered. Pairs nicely with ham and any red meat, yet has the flexibility to pair with stronger cheeses and does not overpower the palate for a relaxing glass at the end of the day.
Blaufrankisch: (Sold out) A dry red wine with good tannin structure throughout the mouth. Many tasters comment, “This would go with a grilled steak!” It exhibits currant and leather followed by a smooth finish with a nice balance. Serve at room temperature with a strong cheese, a smoked meat dish, or nice to have in your glass when that roast comes out of the oven.
Semi-Sweet Vidal: Enough sweetness given to this white wine by its own non-fermented juice mellows the acidity of this naturally tart wine. Yet it retains a little green apple taste to make it interesting. This wine seems to call, “Grab some fresh apples, pears, Swiss cheese, a French baguette, and take me to the deck!”
Scamper: Reminding us of a frisky lamb, this wine definitely took its own path! Originally intended to be a semi-dry wine (we’ve even had to change the label), Scamper insisted on bringing forth its best as a sweet white wine…yet sassy, hinting of rhubarb and raspberries.
