O Cellars Meritage Red Blend 2019

My first Burntshirt bottle! I opted to open the Meritage first to see what their overall fruit profile could produce when blended for optimal experience… Quite impressed and can honestly say that it would be amongst the top 3–5 producers in the state… The soil insight are capable of ripening especially in this optimal vintage. All five Bordeaux varietals used and leads to a Monticello or Breaux-style blend. Rich, with plenty of heft, this build is enough but it’s in no way special or distinct. It reflects competency in farming and in winemaking, but lacks a real pizazz or layers of nuance. It’s just nice ;) the 90 score reflects overcoming the obstacles of latitude and possible excess rains. It’s really good by NC standards, which is a victory that they should be proud of. We put this against burgers and baked beans and we were satisfied, that’s a lot to ask of a cab sauv driven blend ;) — a year ago

Pellegrini Vineyards

Estate Grown Unfiltered Cabernet Franc 2014

Quite impressive! I would label this a “classic” CF in the same way old school Breaux tastes. A little lean & mean, this fella was complete with dark cherry, spice (pepper) and green crunchy veggie notes (yes, Bell pepper). Finish was longer than the body was wide. This was my first LongIsland wine, I am sufficiently interested :) — 4 years ago

Breaux Vineyards

Reserve Chardonnay 2017

Clean and balanced - fully energized with and acidic core, this hazelnut and star fruit drive the rich body. Sir lie aged, this guy has no Malo...still full body. Classy and dignified — 5 years ago

Cellar Selection Virginia Malbec 2010

Beyond expectations! Varietal correctness, full & expressive mouthfeel, and a long finish, ripe tannin finish…easily go 5-8 more years! Well done. At 10.5yrs old, Dave Collins crushed this extraction :) — 2 years ago

Equation X Merlot

A very earthy red! Deep red, lots of tobacco, dried herbs, wet moss. A good recommendation that I would revisit. — 3 years ago

Nebbiolo 2013

Nicely balanced, this is starting to enter its transition phase. Drink now for a Pinot like offering — 5 years ago

Links Bridge Vineyards

Maryland Cabernet Franc 2015

Mashup: 2013 Ankida Ridge Pinot meets 2006 Breaux Nebbiolo —> Intriguingly delicious! Nuanced and highly aromatic, this has the acid of the afore mentioned with this herbal, veggie, floral & dark fruit matrix going on. I will get another bottle to age as well as the 2016s (2 offerings). Far from classic, it’s style dares to goes where only the regional Oenophiles tread ;) — 5 years ago

Catoctin Creek

Meritage Blend 2012

Breaux for the win! Sourced from Hillsboro each year, this has that classic “West side of the ShortHills” Merlot character. While being a bit linear and simple, this basement-made hobby wine is well done by Mr. Hanna :) — 2 years ago

Big Cork Vineyards

Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Dave Collins just plain owns S/B...from his days at Breaux, he crafts a powerful, world class single varietal that says NZ move over. Not to miss in sunny, stable vintages, this is a solid 92pt white Bordeaux! Body ✔️ Acid✔️✔️ Profile ☑️.....indeed, impressive! — 3 years ago
