“Aromatic, fun and capable of dribbling crushed essence-of-peach all over your tongue, [the 2017 Petite Fleur] is pretty hard to dislike.”
90 points – Mark Squire, Wine Advocate
2021 Petite Fleur
75% Vidal Blanc, 25% Muscat
A great balance between the floral nuances of jasmine, honeysuckle, and rose’s along with the vibrant orange, plum, white peach, apricot, and a touch of tropical fruit. The fruit and floral layers are integrated with the caramel/butterscotch, vanilla, and honey notes. The finish is a mélange of fresh fruits and flowers all wrapped in a layer of honey. The balance between the residual sugar, bright lemon and all the different nuances makes for a wonderfully complex wine.
Jamestown Cellars Settlers’ Spiced Wine
A grape wine base, with added cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove, and allspice
Using a red wine base and infusing a carefully balanced blend of spices, the wine comes through with dark fruit and berries. On top of the fruit is a predominant cinnamon and clove character followed by a myriad of fruit and spice combinations, to include an anise note. This is a delightfully fun wine that can accommodate many occasions. Serve warm in a mug and add a stick of cinnamon for garnish, or try it iced with a slice of citrus fruit or a mint sprig.

Vin Licoreux de Framboise – Wine with Raspberry
A blend of barrel aged and stainless steel red wine and raspberry
This Raspberry Wine is a blend of raspberry and red wine. The red grape wine is comprised predominately of Merlot. Ultimately the raspberry character is the most forward with the red grape wine following on the back palette. The combination of both flavor profiles offers a nice balance of the different fruits and their particular nuances they each share.
This is a very pleasant dessert wine which will go with many desserts but I would strongly recommend a rich cheesecake with fresh berries or anything with the word chocolate in it.
