*NEW* 2019 Sandstone
13.4% ABV | 7 Months Neutral French Oak | Maryland Appellation
Unfined and Unfiltered (Some Sediment in Bottle is Normal)
The 2019 Sandstone is a medium bodied red wine with a medium to high acidity and a moderate level of tannin. The nose leads with aromatics of fresh red fruit, primarily strawberry and tart cherry. There is also an element of minerality, like crushed gravel. On the palate both the fresh red fruits and minerality are apparent, as well as a slight taste of bell pepper. Bell pepper, or “greenness”, is often associated with Cabernet Franc. In moderation, it can add an extra element of complexity to the wine.
While the wine is very fresh, it also has a nice potential for aging. This wine can be enjoyed now or saved for 7+ years. As the wine ages, it will lose some of its freshness and transition towards dried fruit and other bottle age flavors.
