Grand Cru

Our flagship wine derives its name from Nimrod’s initials, Nimrod John Kovacs, and it is a blend of his favored varietals. It offers a complex succession of different flavors, which include plum liqueur, smoky raspberry and bramble, which are further complemented by aromas of allspice and tobacco. This wine is stunning now, but it will continue to age beautifully for the next decade and more.

This great vintage received the following accolades:
89 Points from the Wine Enthusiast
Gold Medal at the 2015 Prestige Reserve
Gold Medal from the Denver International Wine Festival
Silver Medal at the Vinalies Internationales 2016
Bronze Medal at the 2015 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition

Tasting Notes

Aromas of allspice and tobacco are complimented by concentrated flavors of plum liqueur, smoky raspberry and bramble. These flavors flow into an elegant, long, and smooth-balanced finish.
