Sweet red cherry fruit melds with whiffs of graham cracker crumb and leather on this ripe, full bodied red from Bogati. There’s a thin vein of green that trails throughout, but the palate is nicely structured with a dose of warm pepper notes and mouthcoating tannins on the finish.
While a tad pulpy and overripe on the nose, there’s a purity to the dark red fruit on the palate of this Virginia Cab Franc that penetrates amidst notes of fresh green leaves and herbs. Full bodied in style with just a hint of green bramble on the finish.
There’s a brooding, dark quality that tempts the nose with hints of black fruit, coffee grounds and graham crackers on this Shenandoah Valley red. Savory in style with a dry, medium-bodied palate, the plum compote and dried herb flavors are not deeply concentrated but soft, fine-grained tannins and the dark, earthy finish are pleasant.
An easy effort, this has aromas of pear, white peach and white flower. The bright, perky acidity energizes the medium- to full-bodied palate, with a honeyed toasted-nut note marking the finish.
The nose on this dry, full-bodied Viognier is pleasant with notes of pineapples and a high-toned citrus scent. The palate, however, verges between watery and flat with tones of overripe fruit and a hot, searing finish.
