Twang Cabernet Franc Blend 2017

Boo yah!! 67% CF with 23% Merlot and 10 PV. Possibly the very finest mountfair ever! In My 5 years of vintages, this tasted the most old world & regal with a powerful integration of acid/body/tannin. The fruit was so rich yet polished. Hat tip (1 bottle remains) 💯 — 3 months ago

Epiphany Monticello Red Blend 2013

This 2013 vintage blend featuring 50% CF, 30% merlot, and 20% PV Had spent five years finding its groove...and it had great moves! That first phase of aging nearing completion, this fruit and acid where working harmoniously to be both rounded yet deep. Well done :) — 2 years ago

Renewal Monticello 2015

This may be the first or second of Lizzy's wines that I can drink early. Most are too powerful to be opened now – and/or laying down for years. But this was made with good ripe Merlot as its 45% base. Totally balance and quite tasty. Can Sauv 30% and PV at 25% offer tannins and body. Glad I have more ;) — 4 years ago

Serendipitous Red Blend 2017

In this 2017 label release, we find Lizzy’s base blend in a 4 bottle vintage. This one uses no Cab Sauv...so Merlot’s dance partners are 30 PV and 5 CF to add texture/verve to the 60% sweet cherry base. — 9 months ago

Resolution Virginia Red Blend 2014

After an extended aging time, this fella points at the clean-quality of the estate fruit just north of Whitehall. A little more rounded and denser than a non-reserve offering. This is one to hold for several years before bottle #2 is opened. 3 x 1/3 build — 3 years ago

Commitmnet Red Blend 2016

Wooloomooloo Red Blend 2016

this vintage is a return to the norm. I think the hallmark of this Petit Verdot focused wine is that it is strikingly linear with a medium weight. It seems on characteristic of the components to be so tempered. 60 PV 30 cf 10 cs — 2 years ago

Nebulous Red Blend 2013

I think the 2013 vintage is starting to show some promise… This 50% Merlot blend with cab Franc at 30% was really enjoyable – especially as it had a chance to unwind in the glass. Cab Sauv at 15% and PV at five… It’s really about the flavor profiles playing well together with not fair… The oak treatments tend to be about the same. This seems like a nice 5 Wood – good height and decent distance from a smooth swing :) — 3 years ago
