Here are six New Jersey wines you should try this fall from Bellview Winery and Cedar Rose Vineyards.
This award-winning wine from Bellview Winery offers unique aromas of buttered toast and mission figs with a bright palate of sour cherry and currant flavors. An excellent wine to serve with meats and cheeses, the Regent is a beautiful red wine with a silky-smooth finish.
A beautiful blend of 46% Cabernet Franc and 54% Blaufränkisch, Cedar Rose’s Samara is an exceptionally smooth dry red that evokes feelings of warmth with hints of caramel and baking spices—a wonderful wine to try this autumn.
Coeur D’est (2017)
Meaning, “heart of the east,” the Bellview’s Coeur D’est opens with fragrant berry and chocolate notes before transitioning to raspberry and black tea flavors. This full-body red will be a favorite for those who enjoy a dry wine with fleeting shadows of sweetness (and all without being sweet).
A beautiful dry red blend of Chambourcin, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Cedar Rose’s Thundergust exhibits cherry and vanilla notes laced with orchid and velvety tannins.
For those who can’t let go of summer, Bellview’s Traminette is a dry white with noticeable notes of lemon zest, English roses, and orange blossoms, hitting the palate with bright, fruity flavors of honeydew and pairs divinely with spicy foods.
Cabernet Sauvignon (2017)
The estate-grown cabernet sauvignon from Cedar Rose offers luscious notes of raspberry, new leather, and forest floor. With soft, round tannins and a smooth finish, this dry red is an instant classic.
