Kilravock 2017

The name Kilravock comes from the castle in Scotland which the Rose clan has called home and to where we can trace our ancestry.  We chose to use this name for our signature red wine blend, which allows us the opportunity to make the best wine possible from each vintage, hand-selecting the barrels that we feel produce the best wine.  It also allows us to use any grapes that we have available to us to make the best blend, not just limiting us to Bordeaux varietals.

This vintage of Kilravock begins with aromas of dark plums, cherry, cocoa and touches of leather .  On the palate, it is fruit-forward with hints of caramel, toast and just a touch of oak.  It’s a bold wine with strong tannins that will soften over time.  This wine can certainly be cellared for years to come, or enjoyed now after a bit of decanting or with a steak.

Blend
61% Cabernet Franc, 29% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 2% Tannat

    Bought this at the Virginia Wine Expo in 2015 and think so highly of it, we are trying to save it to share with special friends when they visit. Magnificent!

    We are just returning from Kilravock and Nairn Scotland. I am a descendant of the Rose clan also and live in The Plains VA. I would be very interested in more info on your Rose inspired wines or on sharing what we have on the Rose clan

    I have been to the castle in Scotland from where this wine comes, and I think they have the best wine taste that I have ever tasted. This can be attributed to the experience of hundreds of years.

    Any recommendations on how long to save it?

      Depends on the vintage, but I would hold onto the 2016 vintage anywhere from 5 to 7 years!
