Rendezvous Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Concentration!! The maturity and depth of fruit is sooo beautiful!! Hugely rich and refined..:a little short on integrated tannins (aging), but unmistakablely special:) — 9 days ago

Delaplane Cellars

Williams Gap Red Blend 2014

Really solid. leathery lavender plum mild bell pepper, full bodied but well balanced tannins and fruit on the palate. Lingers nicely. Really nice mature wine and doesn’t taste overly of honeysuckle which I think seems to happen with some Virginia wines. — 2 months ago

Breaux Vineyards

Equation X Merlot

A very earthy red! Deep red, lots of tobacco, dried herbs, wet moss. A good recommendation that I would revisit. — 2 months ago

Narmada Winery

Yash-Vir Red Blend 2010

Perhaps a touch on the down swing, this luxurious and sophisticated build still provided plenty of pleasure for a holiday special meal. Complex from quality fruit… The special 2010 vintage provided ripeness for the CabSauvignon and merlot components. Thoughtful oak exposure provided just enough framework and the inherent herb inlay... particularly from the PV. Former Governors cup case gold — 22 days 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 months ago

Lost Mountain Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Delicious, but definitely not quite in it’s prime. After a few more years this will be a star. The rendezvous is showing off now - I want to revisit this in a few years. I get strong notes of tobacco, herbs, and smoke balanced with some black cherry. Stronger acidity than than the rendezvous. This would make a great dinner wine! — 3 months ago

Fabbioli Cellars

Tannat 2012

Red berry, humid summer forest, hints of old leather jacket and hard candies on the nose. Plum, raspberry, tart cherry, notes of vanilla, soft puckering tannins lingering with juicy cranberry on the finish. Nice red for Virginia. Went well with pizza. — a month ago
