Yesterday we conducted another wine tasting party at our friends Sally & Bob's house in Chantilly, Virginia. I certainly like this method of running the event at another person's house so I don't have to deal with food preparation and things of this nature. Anyway, the theme for this blind tasting was Virginia wines, so everyone brought a wine... Read More
Let’s take a trip back in time. Close your eyes and imagine yourself an English explorer, a shipmate of Sir Walter Raleigh’s. You've just braved the Atlantic crossing and are rowing to shore towards a strange island on a forbidding coast. Yet immediately on landing, you see a very familiar site: Grapes. Lots of them. Coastal North Carolina at th... Read More

This is my favorite wine. 2003 through 2006 vintages have all been excellent but 2003 in particular is in my opinion:rich and robust nose, blackberries, blueberries and a hint of tobacco. Great mouth feel, well balanced with plum and spiceaccents. The finish is smooth and leaves you content, even at the end of the decanter. Read More

Wait! Wait just a minute! Roanoke Vineyards' Blend 2 is a Cab Franc/Cab Sauvignon blend. Strickly vinifera grapes. The wine is big, complex, sporting deep plum notes and rich cherry flavors. Very Left Bank Bordeaux in its styling. Excellent, and long sold out. The review above is totally erroneous. Read More
