AmRhein's Signature Wine - 'First in VA to bottle as it's own varietal.'
This is our signature wine and 2019 produced the best fruit we can remember. The wine is full bodied, rich and complex, boasting flavors of caramel and dark chocolate with loads of black fruits all continuing to deliver on a lingering finish.
This wine is best served at cellar temperature and decanted as it is unfiltered and contains some sediment. The sediment, we like to call 'Wine Diamonds,' is actually heart healthy and will not hurt you.

TASTING NOTES & FOOD PAIRING
Winemaker suggestion is to enjoy with wine with lamb chops or venison tenderloin. A delicious lamb chop recipe is included for you to try with this wine.
