Lost Mountain Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

This was really impressive. My first try of Virginia wine and what a great example of the potential. Mesmerizing aromatics. Berries, herbs, coffee beans, rosemary, underbrush. Silky on the palate with a fresh and tannic finish. It’s a shame Virginia wine is almost impossible to find in Europe. If I could, I’d explore more. — 2 days ago

Excellent white wine from northern Virginia. Very buttery with hints of honeysuckle, strawberry, raspberry, and smoke. Highly recommended. — 5 months ago

Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

A more budget friendly RDV bottle! This was the hit of the night. Balanced like the beefier blends, notes of clove, tobacco, and herb balanced with some black cherry. Not a bad showing for the age! — 2 years ago


Hardscrabble Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

Nice complex well aged Cab aromas, bracing acidity but delicate mid-palate, and long fruit/tannic finish. A very nice wine. — 3 years ago

Breaux Vineyards

Nebbiolo 2013

Nicely balanced, this is starting to enter its transition phase. Drink now for a Pinot like offering — 4 years ago

Rendezvous Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Fantastic- nose of forest floor, dark cherries. Some cedar on the palate, dark cherries, dark plums (almost prunes, but not quite), medium high tannins (still), medium to full bodied. Complex, but not as complex and lingering as i was hoping for. — 6 months ago

Breaux Vineyards
