The wine is a dry Rosé blend of grapes grown and processed in the Bordeaux-style at John Kent Cooke’s historic estate in Middleburg, Virginia. The sustainable vineyard consists of certified French clones exclusively. Grapes are hand-harvested, hand-sorted, and fermented in stainless steel tanks.
According to a press release, “Boxwood’s Estate 2021 Rose’ shows aromas of red bramble fruits, raspberry, strawberry. On the palate, there are hints of strawberry, black cherry, and soft tannins that help structure the wine and support a nice lingering finish.”
GrandView flew one of its Bell 407 helicopters to Boxwood Vineyards to pick up the first case.
GrandView operates its Phenom 300s from bases in Baltimore, Chicago, Atlanta, Austin, Phoenix, and Denver. The charter operator holds the Wyvern Wingman safety rating.
