Two distinct grape varietals define the 2017 vintage of the Duel. Merlot offers waves of dark fruit, chocolate, and plum. Petit Verdot delivers black cherry, violet and sage.
A fruit forward and full-bodied Red Blend named after our Winery Dog, Rolo the Chocolate Lab. Rolo, who quickly grew from a wee pup to a great, grinning, whale of a Lab is the inspiration for this wine. Gillian Conway got Rolo in 2007, the beginning of our winemaking adventures. He is turning 12 years old this year! Each year the blend is comprised of different grapes, but always we strive to make it fruit forward, with juicy dark berry flavors, big tannins, and notes of chocolate-of course! This year the blend is comprised of Malbec, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. Enjoy in the company of friends, canine or otherwise! Woof Woof!
