Domaine Finot

Turk Mountain Vineyards Petit Verdot 2019

Rustic, clean….ethereal! Ready for food challenges…acid is poised and candied (discretely) with fading finish. Very sophisticated given its straight fwd linear attack. Blackberry is note this soloist sings :) — 10 days ago

King Family Vineyards

Monticello Petit Verdot 2010

Fee-nominal…the winner (so far) of the 2010’s PV challenge. At 11.5 years from harvest, this beauty from Matthieu Finot sang like a concentrated Right Bank medoc…layers of dark berries, violet & herbs with smoky matting. Still proving enough tannic punch to cut through house grilled cheeseburgers and squash. Bold yet balance. Thank you Ellen for this wonderful gift :) — 4 days ago

Barboursville Vineyards

Reserve Virginia Viognier 2020

Excellent wine from my home state. Smoky and woody as I like it but also with fruit finish. — 21 days ago

The Barns at Hamilton Station

Chardonnay 2016

Class…Shaps understands Chardonnay as well as anyone on the east coast. Barrel Fermented and aged. Wow….again :) — 2 days ago

Delaplane Cellars

Viognier 2020

Peaches, slate, flowers, and honey. Lively. I think some of the negative reviews are due to drinking this too old. — 12 days ago

Gray Ghost Winery

Virginia Chardonnay 2019

Perhaps this should be the Reserve…perhaps this year/vintage, Al should have gone with 50/50 stainless build because this is a malo/oak champion — 19 days ago

Stone Tower Winery

Wild Boar Sparkling Blanc de Blancs

Love this. It's crisp and refreshing. It's what I want to have when it's hot. It's sweet but not like Moscato dasti — 10 days ago

Eastwood Farm and Winery

Tall Tails Cabernet Franc

This was so good at the winery, but different a couple months later with the bottle we brought home. Still good, though, but not as. — 14 days ago

Glen Manor Vineyards

Rosé Blend 2021

Beautiful balance of mouthfeel with terroir character. A touch of Provence with a generous volume of oily/silk roundness! Beautiful to pair with summer cuisine!! — 10 days ago
