2015 Antietam Reserve
2015 Antietam ReserveRed Wine Blend
Antietam Creek Vineyards' 2015 Antietam Reserve has a classic St. Emillion nose of black fruit and damp earth, with a slight hint of eucalyptus. The palate is round and supple with integrated tannin and support from aging in French oak barrels. This is a red blend, with 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Petit Verdot.
2017 Petit Verdot
2017 Petit VerdotRed Wine
Ideal weather produced a near-perfect growing season with very ripe fruit. This wine exhibits classic varietal characters of cassis, bramble fruit, and graphite on the nose. Robust palate with refined tannins and is remarkably soft owing to its 22 months of barrel age in French oak barrels (29% new). Approachable now, but will continue to age well for years to come.
100% Petit Verdot.
2017 Cabernet Franc
2017 Cabernet FrancRed Wine
This first varietally labelled Cabernet Franc wine from Antietam Creek Vineyards is a true representation of Maryland terroir and winemaking. It shows the restraint and refinement of the French style but with the ripe and rich character of California. 16 months in French oak barrels have given this wine structure that will hold up to years of bottle aging while also a sweet richness that only extended barrel aging can give. Made with traditional production techniques such as pump-overs in tank during fermentation, complete malolactic fermentation in barrel, and extended barrel aging on light lees. 88% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot.
2019 AlbarinoWhite Wine
