Block 2 Monticello Cabernet Franc 2019

This is the Estate Reserve Block 2 Cabernet Franc. Very young and needs a couple years in the bottle. That being said, this has such a unique graphite and slate flavor and I look forward to seeing it mature. — 4 months ago

Virginia Vidal Blanc 2019

100% Touriga- and a strong example of how this Portuguese grape is playing a unique role within and upon the blossoming Virginia Wine scene. A sort of stewed red fruit finds its way to the nose which is followed by a surprisingly medium-bodied palate that rhymes with what the nose has already said. It’s a juicy, surprisingly deep effort that I bet will only get better over the next year. The palate is crisp but specifically well-rounded, leading to a juicy finish that, again, is packed with that “stewed fruit” trait that first found its way to the nose. This is a wonderful effort. — 7 months ago

Estate Reserve Monticello Cabernet Franc 2013

Cigar box and a sort-of nose-coating cassis rise to the nose before the real journey begins. Which, as had to be said, is more TRUE Bordeaux than anything that my friends from California have been able to staple. And yes, I said it. — 9 months ago

Heritage Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2017

2017 Keswick vineyards “Heritage” Estate Reserve

85% Cabernet Sauvignon
7.5% Merlot
7.5% Cabernet Franc

A gorgeous, true-to-place blend from the Monticello AVA. The nose is loaded with notes of clove, all-spice, raspberries, and as it breathes those flavors melt together. The attack on the palate is perhaps the Heritage’s strongest point- beautifully balanced and an integrated richness of fine tannins, expressive and powerful yet somehow delicate. Once again, as the best wines out of Monticello (or anywhere for the matter) the Heritage has something genuine to say. Just so happens it is also very well-spoken. The finish is lengthy and reflects the flavors that took to build up the structure. This is more than a delight- it’s a discovery.

Hommage à Geneviève Les Vents d'Anges Pinot Gris 2014

A light-golden hue brings a nose that seems to change from one sniff to the next. At first I thought France, then Austria. I couldn’t place it. It would take a good long look to realize this is from Virginia.

Estate Reserve Chardonnay 2017

Estate Reserve Chardonnay- not the Mt. Juliet. The body is polished and round, acid is tempered and slightly Subordinate to mouthfeel. In this case, the width and luxurious Ness is more prominent than freshness… A very mature bottle with loads of potential for rich creamy lobster dishes. 1 bottle remains!! — 7 months ago
