  • Granite Heights Winery End of the Road 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This red blend is likely Cabernet Franc-based. Earthy nose with raspberry and herbs. NICE mouthfeel but not quite tannic enough for me. Read More

  • Potomac Point Winery Richland Reserve Heritage 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Bordeaux style blend -- the exact grapes aren't specified anywhere on the label or their website. Nose is faint, ghostly. Palate is borrrring with a very tannic finish. Read More

  • Narmada Winery Reflection 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky nose with notes of blackcurrant and bacon fat. Ripe, yet light body with soft tannins. Read More

  • Breaux Vineyards Cabernet Franc Reserve 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Good wine is messy! Inky color with lots of sediment. Greatly benefits from decanting. Two and a half years in oak gives it a lot of structure and toasty nuttiness. Drought conditions in 07 led to a very richly concentrated wine that deserves even more acclaim than it's already garnered. Read More

  • Narmada Winery Mom 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Clearly some residual sugar leading to a very viscous body, almost unctuous, but the fab hybrid grapes keep away from the sickly floral aromas that make me give sweet wines a wide berth. Read More

  • Breaux Vineyards Chere Marie 2012

    Snoothrank:

    1.5% residual sugar and bright acidity balance each other out for a refreshing off-dry perfect for warming weather. Read More

  • Breaux Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The incredible smoothness of this red belies its 15.5% alcohol content. Touches of cocoa underneath make it a perfect pairing for dark chocolate. An ideal dessert wine for dry fans. Read More

  • 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

  • Breaux Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Not thrilled with the perfuminess imparted by the Musque clone, but I did really enjoy the white peach notes towards the finish. Read More
