Our Wines

A Port Style Dessert Wine. There is a 6 bottle max per order.

375 ml Bottle

This release is the third step in our journey of an old world style of “port” made using the Solera method. Although we cannot call it Port per the Government regulations because In 2005, the EU and US reached a bilateral accord to end a round of negotiations that had lasted twenty years. One of the significant parts of the agreement was that American wines could no longer use place names such as Champagne, Chianti, or Port on new wine labels unless you were commercially using them prior to that date.

The "Solera" style process is when we combine the past vintages ageing in barrels with the current vintage. We take just enough to bottle the current year and leave the remaining to continue to age with more air space  or "ullage" in the barrel which accelerates the oxidative affects on the wine, slowly turning the "ruby" ports more "tawny".

So this release is a combination of 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 vintages. These vintages have been ageing in French and American oak. Next year will be a combination of 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021. And so on. So in 20 years, in every bottle will be 20 consecutive years blended into 1 bottle!  - A time capsule!!!

This wine is layered in aromas of figs, raisins, baked plums, licorice and baking spices with a hint of vanilla. The pallet is velvety, with a vein of acidity that runs through the finish. It is a blend of Cynthiana, Aglianico and Petit Verdot varieties.

This wine is one that can age for decades if you have the willpower. if you do not finish this bottle in the same day, simply put the cork in and put in your refrigerator until next use. It will be very drinkable for 4-6 weeks after.

For maximum enjoyment - We strongly suggest serving this one-of-a-kind wine in the largest wine glass you have. This allows the wine to breathe and opens the aromatics to the nose giving you a burst of dark fruits. 
 
CAROLUS is our premier wine offering. The name and the wine pays homage to our great state of North Carolina, where we are based. The Carolinas were named to honor King Charles IX of France, King Charles I & King Charles II of England. The Latin name for Charles is Carolus and thus the name given to the Carolinas. The XII signifies that North Carolina was the 12th colony to join of the original 13 colonies of what became this great country.

The 2019 growing season here in Pilot Mountain was marked by very little rainfall, warm sunny days with a constant breeze flowing through the vineyards. This ripened the fruit slowly and at the same time dehydrated the fruit slightly which reduced our yields and in- turn accentuated the fruit flavors and varietal characteristics. This rich and luxurious full bodied wine is layered in enticing aromas of cherry, blackberry, mocha & baking spices. This elegant wine has a supple and velvety finish with balanced tannins, berries and minerals, pairing wonderfully with steaks, stews, game or to be enjoyed on its own. This wine will continue to age gracefully for a decade or more.

The 2020 growing season started with a hard frost on Mother’s Day that reduced yields by 40%. The remaining fruit exhibited great balance and concentrated flavors. This crisp, clean, well balanced and refreshing wine is layered with vibrant aromas of white flowers, strawberry and a citrus zest. On the finish, hints of red berries dance on the palate ending with a twinkle of citrus and minerals. This is a very enjoyable sparkling wine alone but also pairs well with shellfish, caviar, seafood, chicken, roasted pork, pâté and eggs. This wine should be consumed within the next four to five years to savor the balance of fruit and acidity.
