The current 2010 blend was bottled on 8/1/2011 and contains:- 58% Cabernet Sauvignon- 38% Cabernet Franc- 3% Nebbiolo- 1% Malbec
The wine is named for the Roanoke (Staunton) River with headwaters in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwestern Virginia. The river later tracks the NC/VA border finally emptying into the Albemarle Sound. The Roanoke River makes up Smith Mountain, Leesville, Kerr, Gaston and Roanoke Rapids lakes. So perhaps this is the perfect glass of wine to enjoy lakeside with a burger on one of these lakes.
