We may have missed a couple but to our knowledge there are at least 13 different red wines to choose from when visiting this Lexington North Carolina winery.
Here is a list of our favorites
Classic Red - If you can only try one, this is the one you need to taste. This is a blended red wine that’s aged in oak barrels making it very smooth. Upon first sip your palate will be presented with the flavor of cherries. But this fruity taste is not too sweet or overbearing to make you sick and provides a very clean finish.
Three Red - As the name hints, this is a blend of three different wines: Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. Compared to the Classic Red mentioned above, Three Red is sweeter, heavier on the tannins and provides the flavor of raspberries.
2009 Syrah - This might not be the most popular varietal but if you are searching for a unique taste it’s definitely worth a try. This is a very intense and deep dark red wine. It has the same hints of raspberry as the Three Red mentioned above but a little less on the sweets.
