  • Catoctin Creek Winery Syrah 2012


    Intriguing peppery nose. Opulent mouthfeel with bright cherry notes. Spice returns on the finish with a very light grip. Read More

  • North Gate Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2012


    Rather light in color - a clear garnet red. Rich red fruit on nose with a hint of cocoa. Nice peppery finish. Feels lean - lots of fruit and acid, less tannin. Very mellow red. Read More

  • North Gate Vineyard Petit Verdot 2011


    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

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


    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.
