This is another wine we brought back from our VA trip. We happened upon this by accident when a gentleman from the winery was giving out samples at Williamsburg Pottery. Of course we couldn’t say no. We liked this wine enough to bring it home along with another.
Price: Right around $15 on their website
Manda’s Tasting Notes:
- Deep in color
- Lovely nose
- Cabernet really shines through
- Smoky Merlot in mouth, balanced very well with the Cabernet’s fruit
- Balanced tannins
Wolfy’s Tasting Notes:
- Nice dark color, slightly cloudy
- Light fruity nose
- Full mouthfeel
- Overall pleasant wine
I will admit that I scored this wine higher then Wolfy did. I also enjoyed it more. As for how we stand on dry reds; I prefer Chambourcin and Cabernet Sauvignon. While Wolfy likes those, he tends to gravitate toward Norton and Merlot.
