The Grand Vin of @RdV Vineyards is more Cabernet based so there is more structure and a linear sense to the wine's style of finesse meets power personality. Darker cassis and cherry, savory roast beef, shades of graphite and spice brood in a more subtle nose but unfurls more on the palate. While very good now this should be excellent in 4-6 years time and likely go 12-15 years, which gets a higher score for that potential. Probably the best wine made on the entirety of the east coast of the USA.

Beautifully balanced with red and black fruits and lovely elegance. Definitely VA's finest!

Great bouquet of dark fruit and something faint approaching damask rose. Then oak and leather. Grippy tannins loosen after a rest. Nice stuff. Might be a bit young.

Rounded fruity bouquet and lovely light balanced red fruit on tongue. Some astringent tannins. Very pleasant, perhaps a little light and would prefer a longer linger but really very enjoyable wine.

One of Virginia's best. Great blend with a lot of Cabernet Sav notes.
