Monarch Mine Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2013

The most unusual Cab Franc I’ve come across. Pipe tobacco and pine needles. Really enjoyable, cerebral and a sure way to fuck up a blind tasting. — 10 days ago

Red Blend 2011

Remarkable how well this held up for nine years… 50% cab sauv, 36% PV, 14% merlot....Smart blending considering the wet end to the vintage – as much acid as possible (this was the second label wine from old vines… Before T.Ruth was born the next year). Classic Glen Manor concentration of flavor, just in a lighter weight package. This was my last bottle and I knew it was on the downward slope. Glad we enjoyed it when we did Dash it was a testament to Jeff white quality in the vineyard and deft touch in the cellar :)  — a month ago

Shenandoah Springs Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2013

Nate found a way of coaxing some chargrilled lamb and green pepper kabobs out of this ‘13 vintage. I also got grilled plums...complex and dynamic...even at 6+ years from harvest. Plenty of verve left....ohhh, that Shen Springs terroir!! — a month ago

Virginia Marie Lambrix (VML Winery)

Single Vineyard Ivywood Chardonnay 2013

This wine has aged rather gracefully. Still plenty of oak but it is integrated as vanilla accents with peach skin and lemon meringue. Great acidity. Good stuff. — 13 days ago
