Legends wines consist of ten grape, four fruit and one fruit/grape port. Red grape wines will be made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Red Zinfandel and Concord. Cabernet Sauvignon is king of the “Noble” grapes and is famous for it’s use in Bordeaux. This grape has a black currant flavor with a hint of mint and cedar.
Merlot makes the most expensive wines of the hardy varieties. This black skinned grape has green flesh that keeps well and ages well in new or old oak. This citric and aromatic grape can be made dry or sweet. Cappucetto Rosso, which means “Little Red Riding Hood” will be a sweet wine made from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Rose Rock Red is similar to Merlot dry but softer with a pronounced sweet fruity flavor. The Concord grape is a large blue fruit that is very sweet and acidic. Fruity and aromatic, this grape ages well in new or old oak and when blended, will add fullness to wines and wine jellies. Red Zinfandel will be offered in 2006.
White grape wines will be made from Chardonnay, Vignoles and Zinfandel, Chenin Blanc, Muscadine and Pinot Grigio.
Chardonnay is undoubtedly the world’s most favorite variety. Often blended with other wines, this grape has a nutty, buttery, lemon flavor often described with a hint of tropical fruit. It has a strong affinity with oak and can be made dry or sweet. Vignoles grapes are yellow skinned with white fruit. It makes an excellent desert wine with its sweet acidic flavor. It can be blended with other wines and it ages well in new or old oak. White Zinfandel is made from a sweet dark-skinned grape and is related to the Primitovo of Italy. This grape is fruity and aromatic and ages well in new or old oak. Zinfandel is sweeter than Primotovo and abounds with a raspberry, sometimes porty flavor. Chenin Blanc is arguably the most versatile of all wine grape varieties. Crisp, dry table wines, light sparkling wines, long-lived, unctuous, nectar-like dessert wines, and even brandy are all produced in various areas of the wine world, all of Chenin Blanc. The welcoming charm of Muscadine wine comes from the Muscadine grape. The result is a wine that is velvety and smooth with a wonderful floral, spicy aroma. Pinot Grigio is closely related to Pinot Noir. The style varies from lightbodied and fairly straight forward to rich and complex wines that are almost overwhelming in their voluptuousness.
Fruit wine varieties are Blueberry, Peach, Gooseberry and Blackberry.
