Fine garnet color with very forthcoming aromas of lush, fresh fruit, emphasizing ripened cherry, with well balanced secondary berry aromas and flavours. The wine benefits from a period of decanting before serving and opens with great warmth, showing fine age worthiness.
About Barboursville Octagon
Octagon is this growing region’s definition in red wine. What explains its honours and age worthiness is that it disclosed itself, over decades of empirical investigation of this terroir with many clones of many wine grapes. To discover Octagon and what it represents, is the founding charter to which this estate is dedicated, without preference, and with no ambition other than the honest passion to elicit the beauty of the ground.
