Virginia Pour House Notes: Some wines do just get better with time. This wine is no exception. We first reviewed this wine two years ago when it was still available for purchase, urging you, the readers to snatch up what you could. Well now out of our cellar this beautiful wine has shown to be quite the reward for a little patience. Toasty oak with undertones vanilla and dark fruit aromas with sweet spice, ripe, juicy black cherry flavors and a touch of earthy undertones leading to drying smooth, soft tannins. It has an overall round structure with a finish leaving behind sweet tobacco, dark fruit and a hint of mint on the lengthy, warming exit. This wine has certainly opened up and has really maintained the ripe, juicy quality. If you have a bottle in your cellar, be sure to break it out for the Holidays. Now is the time.
