  • Blenheim Vineyards Grenache 2013


    Fun, easy drinking with this Virginia grown south of France varietal. Could not get enough. Read More

  • Barboursville Vineyards Vermentino Reserve 2013


    This crisp Italian white's an unusual varietal for this area and Barboursville's version has a slight tropical note to its predominately citrusy palate. Read More

  • Jefferson Vineyards Meritage 2012


    I'd never guess this Bordeaux-style blend is heavy on the Petit Verdot. It's a little on the light, sweet side for a Meritage -- I'd actually like it best alongside chocolate for dessert. Very pure fruit flavors. Read More

  • Prince Michel Barrel Select Chardonnay Virginia 2010


    Pretty darn good for Virginia chardonnay. Decent amount of creamy lemon, not overly oaked but there is some noticeable and low to medium acidity. The finish is short to medium in length. There are much better $20 Cali chards out there but for VA, worth the experience. Read More

  • Cardinal Point Vineyard and Winery Union 2012


    A great big, bad red. Big, but slightly silky tannins. Blackberry and tobacco notes. Would be a fantastic dessert wine paired with dark chocolate. Read More

  • Cardinal Point Vineyard and Winery Clay Hill Cabernet Franc 2012


    100% varietal, purchased from a neighboring family vineyard. Cherry, pepper, and tomato leaf. A pretty typical Virginia varietal. Read More

  • Cardinal Point Vineyard and Winery Rockfish Red 2013


    Short vat production gives 100% Cabernet Franc minimal contact with skins and seeds, lending a bright color and lighter body. Fruity, but also a little meaty in flavor. Would be nice with grilled foods or pizza. Read More

  • Cardinal Point Vineyard and Winery Quattro 2013


    One of the few wineries in the region using the real German varietals - not just sturdier hybrids - this blend lets their natural sweetness shine. Subtle and honeyed, but still fairly simple. It's their crowd pleaser. Read More

  • Cardinal Point Vineyard and Winery Ipc 2013


    Hold onto your hat -- this is a hopped Chardonnay. Yes, hopped like beer. Citrusy hops match the fruity tones of the Chardonnay for a totally unique, refreshing white you won't find anywhere else. Read More

  • Cardinal Point Vineyard and Winery Viognier 2013


    A higher RS than your typical Viognier. Unusual orange notes and a very rich, creamy mouthfeel make this the equivalent of drinking a Creamsicle. Read More
