Virginia, Usa

Rosemont Vineyards

Kilravock Merlot Blend 2016

This wine gets me very excited about what’s happening with red wine in Virginia. This vintage is even better than the last. It is a well executed red blend (50%CabFranc, 30%Merlot, 20% Petit Verdot) that offers beautiful balance and structure. Fruit forward with aromas of blackberry, caramel and dark chocolate. Paired well with blue cheese! Would also pair beautifully with grilled meats.
This winery is so quaint and charming. Worth a visit. There was a book signing the day we were there. The walls are filled with art for sale. It is also used as a wedding venue.

Virginia Merlot Blend 2019

This wine is most elegant and seamless. Well integrated fruit, structure, and balance. Velvety and so approachable. It was delightful. Another Virginia Winery crafting some reds that rival CA and WA. Impressive 🍷 — 9 days ago

Boxwood Winery

Trellis Red Blend 2010

This one is all about the Vintage. This is a 3rd label release for boxwood and it is a field blend featuring Malbec, merlot, & PV. Each of these components has the ability to stretch the distance with their acidic/phenolic frames. This vintage was hot and ripe, which made this a real value at $22, but my mission was to age this one out, to see if it would just get flabby. Well, bingo! It’s acid is still firm, however the fruit has really concentrated :) It has clear hit its 3rd phase and I really dig it! It has that Virginia port sweetness from the depth of fruit. Super aromatic as well... this proves that thoughtful work in the cellar can produce ageable Mid-Atlantic (VA) wines! — a month ago

Granite Heights Winery

Lomax Reserve Virgina Red Wine 2012

Paired with grub at Maggie’s, we enjoyed the energy and structure to this red meat dance partner. In a general way, this had that cherry coke silhouette. A great restaurant offering :) — 4 days ago

Väsen Brewing Company

Triple Berry Sour

Good, but not great. There’s a funky note on the nose that doesn’t come across on the palate (and that’s a good thing). Balance is there, but it falls short in terms of complexity. A good but not great berry sour. — 21 days ago
