Keswick Vineyards

Estate Reserve Monticello Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

2016 Keswick Vineyards
Cabernet Sauvignon
Estate Reserve

Even without a decant, the ‘16 Estate Reserve from Keswick Vineyards and their brilliant winemaker Stephen Barnard rises out of the glass with pronounced notes of ripe blueberries, subtle oak & forrest floor. If one didn’t know the origin I’m convinced we’d hear Italy, France- maybe even California for the sake of the fruit of it.

The tannins are silky but the backbone is/has been clearly melting into the ‘meat’ and mid-palate of the wine.

Simply put: this is a remarkable Cabernet that I still can’t believe came from Virginia.

Rosé of Sangiovese

I am finding I love certain more dry rosés. This is a bit watermelony and has a nice dry finish. — 9 months ago

Griffin Creek

Rogue Valley Tempranillo 2015

Inky purple. Aromas of leather, black currant, butter. Big style, high tannins in finish, give them at least 30 minutes to settle down. Blackberry and meaty-pork flavors, slightly bitter and moderately astringent finish — a year ago
