At Cardinal Point, our winemaker, Tim Gorman, is the Vineyard Manager as well. With 24 years of experience growing vitus vinifera vines at Cardinal Point, Tim's expertise as a grower shows up in the quality of his wines.
Tim takes great pains to ripen his fruit to the best quality possible... since he knows he'll be the one paying for any shortcomings in the winery! And although he will tell you that the best wines make themselves, he clearly enjoys expressing his creative side in the cellar, as evidenced by our very popular signature blends.

|2016 Frai Rosé|
The winemaker stopped the fermentation on this Rosé just short of dry, and the results are stunning! Fruit forward and not too sweet - you will love this expression of Cabernet Franc.
|2016 Rockfish Red|
This versatile table wine is a blend of estate grown Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The wines were short-vatted during fermentation to keep the tannin influence low and play up the fruit. This red is an easy sipper, but will hold up well with burgers, grilled salmon, pasta and pizza!
