Cork came out fully intact/no breaking. Fruit has faded a little, but man this drank really well! Had this for my daughter's 7th birthday with hamburgers and hot dogs. :)

Jury is out on this one... tastes like a Gamay - super fruity.

This Chardonnay gets a 100. Easily the best I've tasted. IMO it combines all of the variances of chardonnay out there that I like - a bit of acidity, the slightest reduction, a touch of tropical - all packed into one. Extremely balanced. Glad to have 6 more of these for the coming years!

Initially, this vintage of CE was just savage - more "Abbey Ridgish". The longer it was open and the warmer it got, it started to settle down a bit and become a bit more elegant. Very good - obviously lots of life left but we wanted to check in.

Perfectly balanced, drinking well. Wonderful bouquet of berries/herbs. Good finish - velvety. Beckstoffer vineyards are always a winner in my experience. Had with a 3lb Tomahawk Ribeye.

One of the best red values I've ever tasted at $14.99. Dry, just a touch of fruit - great with food!

This was comically bad and I understand it's super cheap. My bust for getting suckered into trying another cheap pinot.

What a great Chardonnay. We have 5 of these (daughters birth year - also named Cameron) so we wanted to check in on it. Paired wonderfully with a 6 pound whole red snapper with lemon, herbs, oranges.

Wine is perfectly balanced right now, with lemon, lemon oil, and just the slightest touch of pineapple/creaminess that I normally don't find in the Clos Blanc, but always do in the Abbey Ridge.

Nonetheless, everyone enjoyed and the bottle went quick!

Very unbalanced and disjointed. Def could have fooled me at 13.5%...

I'm into dry roses, but this had zero fruit. Better stuff out there for a few dollars more.

Rock solid - the subtlest of spice and silk! Could go another 5-10 years easy.

Such a rock solid domestic Riesling. Versatile.
Red
Rock solid and ready to go. Good acidity, nice potpourri and just a touch of funk at this stage.

Last bottle. 13.2 ABV. Abbey Ridge chard is one of my favorite domestic chards. Loads of pineapple. Creamy/slightly oily finish. Paired perfect with our homemade chicken noodle soup.

This wine was fantastic. Def has some pineapple, lemon, funk blew off relatively quick. Still feels a bit young even - crazy!

Fool's Journey is right, we didn't care for this at all. Not sure if it's just past it's prime or what. Bummed I've got 3 of these left! Glad they were only $11...took a flyer.
Red
This is drinking great tonight, could still go another 3-5 years I'd say easy. Glad I've got one bottle left!

We are huge Cameron fans and this might just be one of the better, if not best, bottles we've had. Everyone at our small dinner loved this. My brain can't fathom this getting better... but I'm sure it could.

Being a VA native for 34 years, the first thing I proclaimed to my wife when I smelled this wine was "This smells like Virginia". Hard to describe that, but it just does. Dark Fruit taste, with earth and very balanced out. Wish I had more!

This was really great. A bit of funk on the nose, with potpourri and flowers. Dark berries, earth and spice on the palate. Nice medium finish.

Extremely clear, definitely white like the bottle says. A touch of sweetness, but a semi-dry finish. Had this with a burger and also with salmon later in the day. Very good.

Graham cracker, spice, medium fruitiness. To me, this is a great, everyday Pinot. Great with food.

Black fruit on the nose, palate has just enough spice. Very enjoyable. Had with pan seared pork chops.

Honey and Lemon on the nose, maybe a touch of petrol. Lemon and peach to the taste. Great QPR.
