Slater Run Vineyards Roots

This Bordeaux style red wine was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels and is a blend of 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc, 18% Petit Verdot, and 16% Merlot. The label includes a photograph from the 1940s of Thomas Glascock Slater, Kiernan's grandfather, jumping a stone wall on horseback on an Upperville farm. The wine is named "Roots" in recognition of Kiernan's family's nearly 300 year tradition of farming along Goose Creek in Upperville. Winner of a Gold Medal at the 2017 Virginia State Fair & a Gold Medal at the 2017 San Francisco International Wine Competition.
