2013 Will Jarvis' Science Project

It’s exciting to imagine that a young boy’s 8th grade science project could turn into a world-class wine, but that’s exactly how this wine began! Many years ago Will Jarvis, son of the owners, made wine for his 8th grade science project. Because it was an experiment, Will picked only enough grapes to produce one small barrel of wine. After it was bottled and had aged ten years, Will was old enough to appreciate the wine and happily noted that its unique, fruity taste had been preserved through the years. Encouraged by his early success, Will repeated his experiment in the Jarvis winery cave environment, again using small barrels. The robust fruit flavor so astounded our winemaker, Dimitri Tchelistcheff, that a new wine was born. With fresh, fruit forward flavor, this wine is intended to be enjoyed at an early age. This wine was cave aged and released when our winemaker determined it was ready to enjoy.
