Muse Vineyards

Clio Shenandoah Valley Red Blend 2017

Ha! Smells of snicker doodle - or maybe these cookies are still largely in my memory - cinnamon and sugar.

Heavy weighted with blackberry coolie, green pepper stem, pomegranate, cranberry, hints of menthol.

Buddha palm acidity sits with light tannin - a bit hot on the finish -
Actually one of the better local wines I have ever had!

Estate Shenandoah Valley Barbera 2015

Heavy bottle. Dark color. Smells resinous and like old raisins. Spice. Cardamom. Dry but juicy. Caramel. Blackberry cobbler. This is complex and funky. A nice example of the Barbera. — 3 months ago

Harmony Chardonnay Blend 2014

Found this dusty bottle in my cellar and wasn’t expecting much after 7 years. Surprisingly it was great. Slight amber color. Light refreshing honeydew nose. Juicy acidity with slight buttery texture - some sweetness with melon and strawberry and hint of Concord grape. Very refreshing. — 7 months ago

McKahn Family Cellars

Shenandoah Valley Grenache 2018

I have discovered a new favorite. McKahn Family Cellars. This is their Grenache 2018. The bouquet is full of spice and rhubarb pie. The initial palate is somewhat sour on the beginning but then diffuses into a nice dark berry flavor. This is followed by spice and dark chocolate. Then comes the oak and smoke. The finish is semidry and leaves you thirsting for more. — 8 months ago

Purple Wolf Vineyard

Dragonfly Traminette Chardonnay

What a pleasant surprise! Lavender on the nose. Sweet wine up front balanced by a slight bitterness from the lavender. The flavor is strong; if you don’t like lavender, you won’t like this wine. Excellent for pairing with sharp cheeses and breads, or for curling up my the fire on a warm spring evening. — 2 months ago

Gadino Cellars

Delfino Rosso Merlot Blend 2015

Actually this is a Red Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (36%), Cabernet Franc (28%), Merlot (28%), and Petit Verdot (7%). My wife, son and I stumbled on this vineyard on the way back from the Shenandoah Mountains. It’s a little gem hidden in Rappahannock, Virginia following the Italian family wine-making traditions. — 6 months ago
