The nose shows classic Burgundian character with round black cherry and cassis then evolves into hints of ripe strawberry. Kirsch combines with cardamom and white pepper and the long finish carries with it classic fresh bright cherry notes.

2. Lake Anna 2008 Bellhaven Cabernet Franc

Truly a wine that was made in the vineyard. The hard work and dedication to detail of the grower are reflected in this big, deeply colored Cabernet Franc—exuding mocha, ripe berries, and hazelnuts.

3. Preston Ridge Chambourcin

Full bodied, bold flavor dry wine. Very aromatic and fruity. Great with light and spicy meals. Wonderful wine for grilling and cooking.

4. Lazy Days 2012 Chardonnay

This early release, light-bodied Chardonnay has bright flavors such as ripe pears and apples. It has a perfect balance of fruit and acidity that finishes smoothly with just a hint of buttery taste. Surprise, yes, it is aged in neutral oak!

5. Twin Oaks 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon


18035 Raven Rocks Rd, Bluemont, VA 20135

Ruby red with a hint of bell pepper, our Cabernet Sauvignon is dominated by berry and wild cherry flavors.

6. Potomac Point 2010 Petit Verdot


275 Decatur Road, Stafford, VA 22554
Website | Facebook | Twitter

Deep rich color with a unique bouquet of pepper, smoked wood, hay and leather. It has an accent of black currant. A velvety feel in the mouth but with strong and long tannins. It should be paired with strongly flavored food, robust meat and aged cheeses.

7. Ingleside 2012 Chardonnay


5872 Leedstown Road, Oak Grove, Virginia 22443
Website | Facebook | Twitter

Barrel fermented in neutral oak barrels, this Chardonnay explodes with fruit aromas. Its great acidity and crispiness make this a well-balanced wine.
