Every day on this granite hillside, we dare to do something great — create an iconic American wine. Here at RdV, we produce our flagship Lost Mountain and Rendezvous blends. They are both wines with soul, born of the granite soil, the Virginia weather, and the patience, perseverance, and passion of those crafting them.
RdV is shorthand for the well-known French expression “to rendezvous.” This wine celebrates the coming together of soil and terroir, grapes and wine, family and friends for a shared moment. The name is also a nod to our friends and kindred spirits in Bordeaux.
Rendezvous is the youthful spirit and generous expression of our magical hillside vineyard. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and a touch of Petit Verdot, is crafted to showcase our distinct terroir with a rich, round, fruit-driven style and accessibility that makes it perfect to enjoy right away.
Generous and fully ripe, yet crisp cassis and blueberry fruits fill the entry that follows with subtle notes of vanilla and graphite minerality. A well-integrated refreshing acidity balances velvety and supple tannins, providing excellent tension and length. Drink now or cellar for 5-10 years.
