These varietals are a blend of the top 3 grapes recommended for the Virginia climate and grown in our front and west fields. The grapes are typically harvested in late October | mid-November and then aged 24 months in French oak barrels. The results are a fruit-forward intensity from the Tannat and Petit Verdot and an earthy mid-palate from the Fer Servadou, giving the wine great tannins, structure and flavor.
Fun fact: This was our very first wine named after the Winemaker’s grandmother, Ruby, who really was a gem!
Late October / Early November

Food Pairing Notes
Most meals from pasta to sirloin steak and while it's a food wine, it's a great end-of-day-unwinder too!
