Granite Heights Vineyard

Barbelo Barbera Merlot

60% Barbara from Cali and 40% Merlot from the Estate... this was actually quite delicious and food friendly – fitting in that void for midweek pasta, pizza, burgers whatever’s. Full-bodied and energetic - fun fun fun — 13 days ago

Upper Shirley

Virginia Merlot-Sangiovese Rosé Blend

Love the blend from Charlottesville. This has got some weight to it. Gives the impression of creaminess. Agile ripe watermelon, strawberry, and peach fruit on the nose and finish. But, the sangoviese ushers in rose blossom and fresh citrus. Just a touch of earth in the form of clay pottery. Crisp acidity rounds out all aspects of this wine. Paired with grilled salmon and lemon-honey garlic sauce. Time to let your rosé’s takeover in PA. — a month ago

@Neal Schaffer Beautiful here the snow around the house is gone, the rivers raging and snow still in the mountains with night time temps in the cool crisp 30’s. The skies are out away and the mountain bike and kayaks are out Cheers 🍷🚴‍♂️Enjoy your summer and Memorial Day weekend 🇨🇦🇺🇸

Hillsborough Vineyards

Vintners Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

I love a “risk-reward” purchase....I bought this blind and was rewarded with real quality. Quite a nice single block build - a little PV AND MERLOT (about 10% total) from the steepest slope and highest point in the vineyard. With a month of hurricane rains this still has the concentration you would expect from a classic vintage. I can only wonder how this was solved in the cellar ;) Nevertheless, it had dynamite structure and acidity to complement a complete pallet black fruit and spices! — 13 days ago

Gives Beaujolais Nouveau a run for its money serves chilled. — 5 days ago

Glen Manor Vineyards

Red Blend 2014

Solid components make expressive wines - here in VA! Jeff White takes his third level fruit and blends a beautifully complex, multi-purpose, light-heavyweight right bank winner. Still tight and developing in the bottle, this cab Sauv (62%) driven Bordeaux styled winner just kept getting better each day! Layers of fruit with sturdy structure makes for top candidate for best VA red under 25$! Buy more!! — 13 days ago

The Williamsburg Winery

Limited Dry Rosé 2017

What a real treat - beautiful CF fruit dances with an unknown % of Vidal and Viognier to create a remarkably balanced French style Rosé. Classic strawberry+apple acidity mingles with a mineral undercurrent to have food cleansing charm and rich mid-palate mouthfeel. The classic phrase applies: refreshing!! well done WW :) — 13 days ago
