Virginia Pour House Notes:

Dark chocolate covered blackberries, light oak and smoky, wild dark berry seduce the nose. The body is full, supple, voluptuous and silky showing dark chocolate, blackberries, blueberry compote, pie crust and hints of light baking spice. Impeccable balance with a back end really displaying the tamed, integrated tannins and blowing you away on the finish with the same tight tannins and a warming, lingering and lengthy curtain call. Deep and complex; seductive yet refined. A lady in the glass, but kinky on the palate. The most velvety structured wine to hit my palate to date – incredibly well produced and a top tier wine.

First and foremost, our sincerest apologies about our absence during the last year. We have been fortunate to have a large following over the past several years that has brought in over 100,000+ readers. We want to thank all of you! We have expanded beyond Virginia, touching many places in the United States and even spun off a travel blog to cover our International journeys. So where do we go from here? Many readers have submitted suggestions of a more digital approach. Monthly review pieces versus daily postings, video production, food pairings, wine country itineraries and even a podcast.
