Our dry red wines

Red wine

Air Bellows Red
Hailing from the Tuscany region of Italy (Brunello di Montalcino), this medium to high acidity Sangiovese is full bodied with a firm tannin. It has the flavor of a tart cherry with a violet nose, and its sheer strength will grow hair on your chest.

Bergamais
Made in the style of the great Beaujolais wines, this perky young wine is also made from the juice of the Gamay grape. Won a gold medal at Dixie Classic Fair in 2004.

Bald Head Red
This delicious full-bodied red was named after a local landmark known as Bald Head Mountain. A robust dry wine with a hint of plums and earthy notes, it offers a slight oak finish.

Bourgeron
Patterned after the great Burgundy wines, our version of Pinot Noir offers a soft, light, fruity, easy-drinking taste, emphasizing fresh berry flavors.

Bull Head Red
The grapes for this wonderful Malbec hail from Argentina. Enjoy a soft, rich textured wine with the taste of ripe plums, cherries, currants, and red berries. The nose offers just a hint of vanilla. Food pairings are beef and lamb.

Devil's Garden Red
A full-bodied spicy and deeply colored Chilean red wine, with flavors of black cherry and plum. It offers a hint of anise, and a lightly toasted vanilla finish.

Elk Knob Red
Consider making an investment of this young Barolo wine. It will peak in 2015 or 2016. Barolos normally sell in stores for over $35, so ours is a bargain! Do you have the patience it takes for this wine to mature?

Feather Bed Red
A full-bodied intense red with cherry - currant flavor, this Cabernet Sauvignon benefits from aging with oak. Wonderfully matched with Filet Mignon or other fine cut of beef.

Glade Valley Red
This blend of 70% Cabernet and 30% Merlot comes from grapes grown in Australia. The Merlot softens the tannins in the Cabernet, providing a smooth and gentle finish. Lightly oaked, with the fullness of ripe berries.

Italian Stud
Specially formulated by your wine master, this strong Super Tuscan-styled red is often confused with liquid Viagra™. Thistle Meadow Winery assums no responsibility for sudden passionate desires. You simply must read the testimonial letters to get the full picture of this hearty red. Faint hearts beware! Limited quantity available.

Nile Red
A spicy Cabernet flavor, wed to a sweet fruit Shiraz, softened by Merlot - This wine is velvety smooth, just like the section of the New River for which it was named.

North Fork Red
Another wine made from Australian grapes, this blend of 70% Cabernet and 30% Shiraz offers a rich, deep red color and a full taste, nicely rounded with oak.

Old Vine Zinfandel
This well-rounded, full-bodied yet mellow Zinfandel was made from grapes grown on a 100-year-old vine in California.

Pine Swamp Red
Quickly gaining popularity with the "dry red" crowd, this oaky and fruity plum-colored wine offers mild tannins and a smooth finish.

Scottville Red  
A rich, dark and robust Shiraz, with flavors of warm berries, fresh pepper, and oak.

South Fork Red
Soft, full flavor laced with oak to enhance fruitiness. Compare this wine with your "store bought" harsh Merlots!

Stratford Red
This wine, named for the community near Piney Creek, is our own blend of Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Starts out wonderfully, and ends spectacularly.

Thistle Red
This wine comes to us from South Africa in the style of a Pinotage Cabernet - It adds to our already great Cabernet family!

Topia Red
Patterned after the great red wines from the Valpolicella region of Italy, this medium-bodied dry wine has a fruity bouquet and rich texture.

Turkey Knob Red
Luscious, rich and velvety wine made in the Chianti style from the grapes of sunny Italy, this red gets its name from a colorful Alleghany hilltop near Piney Creek.

Vieux Chateau du Roi
Watch out! This big red wine offers a great berry and cherry aroma. Made in the style of Chateauneuf du Pape, this Syrah blend (with a little Mourvedre) won a silver medal at the Dixie Classic Fair in 2003.

Vox
Styled as a classic Italian Amarone - platinum rated.
