  • North Gate Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2012

    Snoothrank:

  • North Gate Vineyard Petit Verdot 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Inky color. Quite aromatic with violet, raspberry and blueberry notes. Clearly has some oak influence, with a bit of vanilla emerging as the wine opens up. Pretty delicate body with few tannins, though more power builds on finish. Read More

  • Wow, that's a lot of replies in a short amount of time.  Let me start ... I went outside on this cold Northern Virginia morning and pulled all of the bottles out of the recycle bin so I could write down their names.  We had three cabs, a pinot, a shiraz, a zin / cab blend, a Greek agiorgitiko, a chardonnay and a riesling; here are the bottles:...

  • Dry Mill Vineyards 1 In 100

    Snoothrank:

    Delicious! Given the difficulty of wine growing in Northern Virginia during the year it was bottled (17 inches of rain) this was a miracle. The blueberry juice makes it sweeter but this is offset by the earthy tannet and cab. As an engineer, I give extra points for creativity in overcoming obstacles. Goes well with a chocolate dessert.
