  • Breaux Vineyards Merlot Loudoun County 2002

    Snoothrank:

    Raspberry jam rises out of the glass and coats your mouth with strong enough tannins to keep things from turning sweet. Read More

  • Breaux Vineyards Nebbiolo Loudoun County 2005

    Snoothrank:

    One of the most interesting reds I've had, particularly since Italian varietals are unusual in Virginia. Very pale in color -- almost a burnt tangerine, rather than a red. Incredible leathery taste and feel -- quite the balance between smoothness and grip. If you're ever lucky enough to taste this vintage out of their library, you won't be disap... Read More

  • Gadino Cellars Rosé Blend Rappahannock County Moonrise NV

    Snoothrank:

    A very cool wine! 52% Nebbiolo rose, 31% Cab Franc and 17% Petit Manseng -- the red, white and rose all living in harmony. Drinks like an Italian rosato thanks to the structure from the Nebbiolo and Cab Franc, but the Petit Manseng keeps it light and aromatic at the same time. Read More

  • Château Morrisette Viognier Blue Ridge Foothills 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Lovely if very fruity on the nose with good intensity to the classic honeysuckle, peach and honeydew aromas that show a bit of an Orangesicle sweetness to them. In the mouth, this is somewhat small-scaled, bright, juicy and livel, with clear, classic if slightly simple Viognier flavors of orange cream, honeysuckle and candied peach. Not complex ...
