Sakonnet Vineyards, in Little Compton, Rhode Island was founded in 1975 on the well-researched premise that the microclimate and soil conditions found along the Southeastern New England coast closely resemble some of the great wine regions of the world, particularly, the maritime climates of northern France. At present, fifty acres are planted with many Vinifera varietals including Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Franc as well as Vidal Blanc one of the French-American hybrids. Wine production has climbed to over 30,000 cases annually with many wines receiving awards in domestic and international competitions. – Description from dvoristanac

  • Sakonnet Vineyards Sirius NV

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was lovely (in my notes I actually underlined lovely several times) with that rich, deep sweetness that you so often get from Vidal Blanc grapes. In the mouth, the wine is smooth and rich, with soft notes of apricot. Definitely a nice dessert wine, the Sirrius would also be good sipped on its own as an aperitif. Read More

  • Sakonnet Vineyards Red Blend Port 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Made from estate-grown Chancellor grapes and aged for two years in American Oak before being fortified with brandy. The result is a rich port wine, with notes of cherry and a slightly peppery finish. Read More

  • Sakonnet Vineyards Red Blend Rhode Island Red NV

    Snoothrank:

    A blend of Cabernet Franc, Chancellor and Lemberger, this, like the Petite Red, is a nice utility-player table red, although this is a richer, more complex wine than the Petite Red. The nose has soft floral notes, and in the mouth there are light notes of blueberry, a touch of grassiness, and a very light toastiness from the oak. Read More

  • Sakonnet Vineyards Cabernet Franc Estate Grown & Bottled 2005

    Snoothrank:

    While Id probably rank this in the middle of the pack of New England Cab Francs Ive tasted to date, I did enjoy this wine. A lovely garnet color that caught the light nicely, the wine has an interesting plum & pepper nose. In the mouth, the wine has notes of black currants and a touch of grassiness. The oak brings out notes of musty leather i... Read More

  • Sakonnet Vineyards Red Blend Petite Red NV

    Snoothrank:

    A blend of younger estate grapes (interestingly they didn't share the specific varietals), this is a decent table wine. Red-purple in color, the nose is bright and fruity, and there are bright notes of berries and cherry on the palate. The Petite Red could pair with a wide variety of food, and would definitely be autility-player wine to keep o... Read More
