Wild Acre 2018
Introducing, our newly released Wild Acre 2018! With this wine, we wanted to showcase our vineyard, its Monticello terroir, and the mix of clay and loam soils that combine for great wine balance. It is the loam that defines this premium red wine blend, its medium body and tannins, and red fruit notes. 24 months of oak aging give this wine the character that will let it age gracefully.
On the label, the aerial photo is literally 50 yards from our Tasting Room. It shows the ‘Wild’ natural touch of our surroundings and the ‘Acre’ of vines you can see from our veranda.
We hope you enjoy this wine as much as we have enjoyed creating it!
