  Black Jester Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc
A Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc blend and is considered a light to medium bodied wine. You can taste hints of walnut, raspberry, blackberry, and currant, anise, cherry, and cumin. It also carries an earthy tone with a nice hint of tobacco. By ‘earthy tone’, do not think dirt, but there is a rich and sweet taste coming from the soil which is heavily laden with limestone and at one time, many, many years ago, harbored crops of tobacco.
Exhibiting the luscious dessert flavors of chocolate and cherry and is absolutely delicious. Similar to a Port but without the brandy fortified kick on the backside. This is a sweet Norton wine that goes well with chocolate, cake, mousse, and the heavier dessert food chain.
Fermented on oak but not aged in oak, the chardonnay exhibits crisp apple and honey flavors, with a hint of mango and pineapple. A little bit of walnut and some smaller amounts of the earth tones found in the Cabernet are also in our Chardonnay.
Pineapple and tropical fruit are abundant in this one. Try using it as a sauce or accompanying juice to desserts. This is a sweet Vidal Blanc wine that goes well with tarts, fruit puddings, lighter pies and the lighter side of the dessert food chain.
A full-bodied red wine from a native American grape. Characteristics: Almond, walnut, cherry, chocolate, red and black currant, blackberry with hints of spice and salt. Food choices: Stronger fishes (try shark), beef, Cajun or Thai would be great.
