Piper Drum Red new blend 2017

28.00

We'll be experimenting with Cabernet Franc 'til the cows come home. It is one of the few vinifera grapes that we find grows very well in Maryland, and we're a fan of its pepper characteristic.  This particular blend will not make the 70% mark required to call it by its primary grape name, Cabernet Franc, but we've mixed its distinguishing peppery flavor (Piper is our shorthand for the Piperaceae or pepper family of plants with distinguishing pepper spiciness) with our familiar nod to a Maryland favorite, the Drum fish, that inhabit the Eastern US waters, from which we derive the name for our blended red wines. We expect it to be ready in January 2017.
