2016 Rough House - Covington Cellars
Rough House is our red table wine and was named after David's Naval Reserve Unit. Initially encouraged by those friends and fellow service members to start the winery, David felt it was only proper to make a wine to commemorate that. Although Rough House has worn several different labels over the years, they are always patriotic in nature. This Right Bank Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Franc & Merlot is a lively wine with bright red fruits and a touch of herbaceousness. The 2015 Rough House is made of 48% Cabernet Franc, 48% Merlot, & 4% Petit Verdot aged in 50% new French & American oak for 22 months. Dineen, StoneTree, Sheridan, & Pepperbridge vineyards supplied the fruit for this wine.
