the grapes it uses, and obtains all its fruit from local
vendors. Of the 34 wines o;ered, more than 20 are
designated as sweet or fruit wines.
HIGHLIGHTS: ;e Aperture chambourcin was a nice
version of the varietal, and the petit verdot was
fruit forward albeit a bit thin on the midpalate.
;e chambourcin blend of its Retriever Red was
slightly sweet, heavy and showed some of the
ubiquitous foxy flavors of the grape, finishing with
scents of fresh cheese.
PRICES: Tastings are $8 or $10; bottles range from
$15 to $50.
FOOD: Cheese and cracker plates, and blocks of
cheese are available.
