Why We Love This Wine
Fairview Wines is a working farm housing a collection of micro-businesses (including La Capra) all sharing a common goal - creating artisanal & sustainable produce with a focus on fine wine & cheese. Caring custodians of the land since 1693, everything they do is driven by their philosophy of being honest, allowing ingenuity to flow, & honoring the heritage of the land by providing better conditions for farm workers and allowing them a chance to farm their own land. Bright red in color, aromas of black cherries , bright red fruit, and subtle French oak emerge on the nose. It has a luscious, fruit driven palate and generous tannins on the finish.
Winemaker / Tasting Notes
A lovely red with gorgeous aromas of ripe plums with sweet berry hints, it is soft & supple on the palate with smooth tannins.
