    September 9, 2022 - Solid, but not as good as I remembered. May have been slightly past peak? Would try again.

    April 12, 2020 - I was skeptical of the high praise for this, wondering if it was inflated in a "Great for Virginia wine'" kind of way. It's definitely deserved. This is great wine and I'm glad it's being recognized as such. Just terrific balance. Fruit is still present and there's a wonderful texture currently. No need to drink up though.

    Wish we had more in the cellar.

    May 28, 2018 - Virginia Governor's Cup Wines: Deep purple color. Boastful fruit on the nose but fresh and tart (black cherry, plums, red currants), with cocoa, eucalyptus, spiced black tea, vanilla, lots of complexity. Crisp acid frames the palate, structured tannins provide support, and I get lots of tart black cherries and plums. Complex notes of pencil shavings, black pepper, smoky charcoal, grilled herbs. Pure, vibrant, long way to go, but this is beautiful. Merlot with 23% Petit Verdot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec, aged 18 months in 50% new French oak.
