2016’s growing season was very hot and dry in Yadkin Valley.  This concentrated the dark fruit flavors in this fine wine.  JOLOTAGE is a full-bodied, supple and elegant wine boasting alluring aromas of blackberry, cherry, violets, and minerality, with an explosion of dark fruits on the palate.  The finish lingers with velvety tannins.  This wine can be paired with meats, game, hearty stews, or just to be enjoyed on its own.  This wine properly cellared, will age gracefully for a decade or more.

 

Based on the blending trial held July 15th 2017, we all decided this blend of primarily Merlot and Petit Verdot, with a backdrop of Montelpulciano and Cabernet Franc was deserving of the JOLOTAGE label.
