Red Oak Vineyard

Ruby color. Bright, fruity aromas and flavors of grape jelly and strawberry jam with a supple, vibrant, fruity sweet medium body and a seamless, cheery finish imparting notes of watermelon, sweet citrus, and honey. A nice off dry sipper.

Red Oak Vineyard
2013 St. Pepin
Pale silvery straw color. Bright, fruity, herbal aromas and flavors of exotic tropical citrus, bread fruit, pineapple yogurt, and white grape jelly on scone with a silky, tangy, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a silky, interesting, medium-length finish with impressions of honey and yellow apple with no oak. A pleasant very fruity sweet sipper.
