Fall 2022 Releases

Terrapin Pride Cabernet Sauvignon University of Maryland Alumni Association Wine Label

2018 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 

  • Grapes were sourced from the relatively warmer northern part of the appellation near the town of Geyserville, with a portion coming from a mountain block off of Pine Flat Road. In the cellar, aging for 16 months in 100% French oak (1/3 new) developed this wine’s complex layers.

  • Tasting notes: A classic Alexander Valley Cab, with ripe cassis and berry flavors with plenty of chewy tannins. This wine finishes strong, with lingering hints of vanilla and toasty oak.

  • Pairs well with braised pork shanks, beef stew or steak.

Terrapin Pride Chardonnay University of Maryland Alumni Association Wine Label

2021 Edna Valley Chardonnay

  • Sourced from the cool region of Edna Valley. In the cellar, aging for 9 months in a combination of stainless steel tank and French oak (1/3 new) developed this wine’s complex layers.

  • Tasting notes: Fuji apple, cantaloupe and Asian pear aromas on the nose give way to balanced fruit and acidity on the palate. A hint of creaminess, caramelized apple from the barrel-aged portion marries perfectly with the fresh apple, Meyer lemon and cantaloupe flavors of the stainless counterpart.

  • Pairs well with crab, lobster and a variety of goat cheeses.
