á point at 4.5 years. Even better on day two. Softer structured than Austrian but good varietal aromas and flavors and very food versatile and friendly. — 3 days ago

Virginia Meritage Red Blend 2012

This was worth the 5+ years I waited and invested in this rappahannock co (?) family wine. Really sang herbal harmony with wifey’s perfect Wooloomooloo BeefStew Roast. Tannins have tempered at 7yrs+ to let the sweet red fruit sing a few solo lines. — 2 days ago

Buchignani Ranch Zinfandel Blend 2013

Drinking again after two more years in bottle. Beautiful right now. Excellent tension between acid and big ripe, fleshy blue fruit. Ferrous, spicy, briary fun but with superb elegance. Loving this wine and very sad it is my last bottle. — 9 days ago

55% slope Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

This winery was sold and rebranded to Immortal Estate. This was $55 and then increased (to 75 - 100). Amazing wine at $55 but loses its value around the $70 or so price range.
Silky smooth lush dark fruit, cocoa, and cigar flavors. Drinking very well now right.
The new winery I boycott on the outrageous price increases but these are very good at the right price point.

Poe Wines

Manchester Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Pop and pour. A dark reddish/purple. On the nose: barn yard funky tart cherry, forest floor and spice. Taste: raspberry, bright acidity, minerals, dried spice, little blue fruit on the end with some grippy tannins and a medium finish.

Poe wines - California cool climate restrained, fresh wines....good price...small batch pinots inspired by the winemakers travels in Burgundy. No Cali fruit bomb here.
