Rendezvous Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

It takes a minute for the nose to open up. And then it’s deep dark fruits, anise, and toasted marshmallow. Then it is luxurious on the palate. Smooth and rich and the flavors just keep on coming. Lingering aftertaste, medium tannins. Had this at a tasting at the winery and bought a bottle. I think it’s mostly cab sauv . I can’t remember. What a treat! — 17 days ago

Padrino Red Blend 2012

Surprisingly good...to the point that it would hard to taste the “Virginia” in this, let alone the ‘Loudoun’! As Pete referenced, this is mostly Tannat (and Doug has a good track record with the Tannic-tempter”). The taste is a mashup of NorCal wild Zin & Petite Sirah w/12.5% Merlot ;) That the brown-bag taste. The “it’s from Virginia“ taste indicators was a flat Cheerwine cola mojo. Dark berry fruit acid grabs you right away...a delicate dance of coffee and briar compote escort a sturdy structure mid-palate off the stage. The Virginia Tannat is woven into the blend such that it isn’t articulate or distinguished. Nevertheless, this was punchy mid week red that had brownbag surprise written all over it! — 3 months ago

Rkatsiteli 2015

Fascinating white. This grape is brand new ground for me. (No Rkatsiteli at my local wine store!). Fruity yet not tart. Qualities I like in my beloved Riojas. — 2 months ago
