Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2021 was a gratifying year. Bud break came early. We were fortunate not to have been impacted by the frost which affected some of the other East Coast vineyards. Bud break was followed by a warm (but not too warm) summer filled with plenty of sunshine and just a little bit of rain when you would want it (but not when you didn’t) throughout the year, followed by a typical September with plenty of warm (but not too warm) sunshine, cool evenings, and little rainfall. The grapes were very healthy and picking went smoothly. This led to good yields that were just the right size.

Winemaker Notes
Estate-grown and sustainably grown on our 146 acre farm, our grapes are tended by hand throughout the growing season and are harvested by hand in the fall. Crumbling Rock is one of our preeminent reds, one of several Bordeaux-Style reds. We will use varying portions of our Bordeaux grape varieties (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, and Petit Verdot) in making our Crumbling Rock. While the blending varies vintage to vintage, we always strive to make Crumbling Rock “feel” the same way: rich, elegant, smooth – a full mouthfeel.
