Embodying our motto, “We bleed orange and blue but drink red,” this wine is a nod to the family’s two generations of UVA alums. The 2016 vintage is a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Pinotage, the first of its kind and the largest portion of Pinotage incorporated to date. This wine was bottled with very low sulfur for early drinkability. Soft fruit on the nose coupled with a little spice attributable to the Pinotage carries into the fruit-driven palate. An easy accompaniment to most foods, from pork and steak to pizza. 430 cases produced.
