Silver Fork Winery Four Dog Red

Nestled on 32 acres, Silver Fork Vineyard & Winery has about six acres of grape vines with nine different varietals. Producing European varietals, their wine is a more dry, Bordeaux style. Staying open later, in addition to their live music, Silver Fork attracts many loyal guests. Their Chambourcin is a must try!

Tasting

Four Dog Red (5 awards) — This is a beautiful, four varietal blend that was aged in French and Hungarian oak. There are notes of caramel and spice in this medium-bodied wine. It would easily pair with a classic steak dish.

What they say: Our signature red blend is inspired by our beloved puppy family; Lil Bear, Callie, Lily, and Gus. Each of our furry children has their own distinctive character and personality that while on their own is magical, together creates a harmony like no other. The same can be said for the 4 varietals we chose for this blend; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petite Verdot. This medium-bodied wine has aromas of raspberry and currant.

Quick Tips:

  • Pairs well with everyday food, from spaghetti to steak.

Fast Facts:

  • Aging: 8 months in French Oak
  • Blend: 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 21% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Franc
