The Count

Red Blend

The Count's intriguing blend of varietals intermingles seamlessly to produce an elegant and complex wine. Individual lots were fermented separately in open and closed-top fermenters and aged for 14 months in Hungarian, French and American oak barrels before final assemblage and bottling.

Tasting Notes

The wine bursts forth with bold aromatic notes of brambleberry, baker's chocolate and soft baking spices. 


Richly textured upon the palate, flavors of dusty blackberry, black cherry and plum skin mix with deep notes of espresso.

Vintage Notes: 

The 2015 vintage of The Count - Founder's Red Wine is velvety and soft, this wine offers well-balanced acidity and a long lasting finish.
