Gabriel Archer Reserve - $32.00


Awarded a Bronze medal in the 2010 Decanter magazine World Wine Awards!  This is a premium red wine, skillfully styled to reflect the art of blending in the Bordeaux tradition. Gabriel Archer Reserve represents the best efforts of the winemaking team to produce the finest, most complex red wine possible. This vintage is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, combining only what the winemakers deem to be the best barrels from the vintage. Gabriel Archer is only bottled in those vintages of suitable quality. This unique and distinctive wine is named in honor of the co-captain of the "Godspeed," arriving in the New World in April, 1607. Captain Gabriel Archer led the first exploration party up the James River, choosing as his preferred landing site a point later to be known as "Archer's Hope," now part of the farm where The Williamsburg Winery stands


 Adagio - $65.00


Awarded a Silver medal in the 2010 & 2011 Decanter Magazine World Wine Awards!  Adagio (in Italian meaning, "at ease" in a musical term indicating the tempo of a composition that is meant to be slow and steady). So named in honor of the extraordinary depth, elegance and grace of a wine.
Balance is the focus of this blend of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The fruit, oak, tannins and alcohol all come together delightfully. An initial hint of black cherries progresses into more mature dark fruits such as figs and dates. Mixed in with the fruit is a lovely note of fresh cocoa along with a bit of soy and eucalyptus. Earthiness and minerality blend agreeably with the fruit. The tannins are firm but approachable and contribute to a wine that will age gracefully over many years.
