Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Storm Front offers a deep ruby color and engaging aromas of raspberry, Bing cherry, Damson plum, black roses, mulberry, pipe tobacco, anise, rosemary, sage and incense. The flavors mirror the aromatics with generous yet focused red fruits that are intermixed with licorice, baker’s chocolate, roasted coffee beans and dusty earth. The back picks up pressed fruits, roasted nuts, framboise, and kirsch liqueurs, mocha and pencil shavings, followed by a slightly grainy sweet-dry tannin finish.

44% E&E Shaw Vineyard, 22% Phinny Hill Vineyard, 22% Dineen Vineyard, 12% Tudor Hills Vineyard
Production Notes
Our grapes were hand sorted and mechanically destemmed into a small bin for a 1-2 day cold soak to bring out flavors and color. Yeast and nutrients were then added to start a 7-10 day fermentation. Then the “free run” wine was pumped into barrels and the remaining skins were gently pressed to extract remaining wine. into the barrels. The wine then went through a malolactic fermentation which softens the wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with roasted chicken and potatoes, rainy evenings and movie nights.
