  Cabernet Franc
This red exhibits extremely deep and dark crimson color. It is opaque, meaning that one cannot see through it. Hedonistic aromas of smoke, chocolate, spices and black fruits waft from the glass. Rich, luscious fruit cascades across the palate, finishing with chalky tannins. None of the green bell pepper flavors associated with unripe Cabernet Franc is present here. This wine has not been in the bottle long and will be superior with some short term cellaring.
  Cabernet Sauvignon
This deeply colored and aristocratic red illustrates why Cabernet Sauvignon is often referred to as, "The Wine of Kings". The aromas are reminiscent of ripe red fruits with a hint of black olive. The palate is concentrated and lush with cedar and cassis flavors, finishing with firm tannins and a lead pencil note. The texture is regal fruit with backbone. This is also a candidate for cellaring.
  Fincastle Chardonnay
This white wine is barrel fermented and aged sur lie for a period of time in the same barrels. The aromas remind one of peach preserves spread on toast. The palate exhibits white fruit flavors with a fresh and clean quality. Moderate acidity chimes in on the finish.
  Hybrid Vigor
Semi sweet white with a citrus finish blended from French\American hybrids Traminette, Vidal Blanc, and Chardonnel.
  Vidal Blanc
A fruity semi-sweet white wine with a refreshing citrus finish.
Notes of apricot, papaya, and toasted meringue with a citrus finish. Perfect companion for seafood, stir-fry, or just sipping on the porch.
