Quick Pour: Rappahannock Cellars 2014 VX2 White Blend

Producer: Rappahannock Cellars Region: Northern Virginia, Virginia, United States Price: $24 (Member Only) Vintage: 2014 Varietals: 75% Vidal Blanc, 25% Viognier ABV: 13.3% Virginia Pour House Notes: Bursting on the nose with aromas of Dole canned peaches, lychee and overtones of fresh floral. The palate is near bone dry with white peach, fresh flowers and a nod of tropical fruit towards the back as it finishes clean and fresh. An amazing blend that is both very fruit forward and surprisingly near bone-dry. Pairs perfectly with fresh pan seared lemon & pepper seasoned cod, served over couscous, with sauteed Brussels sprouts.   Producer: Rappahannock Cellars Region: Northern Virginia, Virginia, United States Price: $24 (Member Only) Vintage: 2014 Varietals: 75% Vidal Blanc, 25% Viognier ABV: 13.3% Virginia Pour House Notes: Bursting on the nose with aromas of Dole canned peaches, lychee and overtones of fresh floral.

The palate boasts a medium bodied structure with fine tannins up front that intensify mid palate while adding light spice and burst of white pepper deep into the back palate as it finishes with earthy undertones and rich oak. A perfect wine to match a tender filet or lamb burger.

25 Pours of Christmas (Pour 1): Two Twisted Posts Chardonnay 2012

Two Twisted Posts Chardonnay 2012 Producer: Two Twisted Posts Winery Region: Loudoun County, Northern Virginia, Virginia, USA Price: $33 Vintage: 2012 Varietals: 100% Chardonnay ABV: 13.8% Virginia Pour House Notes: Creamy vanilla and nutty aromas lead while the palate is caressed by the same smooth, rich and creamy qualities with added nuances of light spice, crisp apple and hints of citrus. The finish follows suit and lingers in a lengthy manner adding in a coating of nutty oak. A gorgeous balance that incorporates just enough oak to smooth out the structure and add that gentle creaminess without the overbearing buttery character. Highly recommended and has been awarded plenty of accolades, including a Governor’s Case Award.   Two Twisted Posts Chardonnay 2012 Producer: Two Twisted Posts Winery Region: Loudoun County, Northern Virginia, Virginia, USA Price: $33 Vintage: 2012 Varietals: 100% Chardonnay ABV: 13.8% Virginia Pour House Notes: Creamy vanilla and nutty aromas lead while the palate is …

Quick Pour: Lovingston Winery Petit Manseng 2013

Producer: Lovingston Winery, Lovingston, Virginia Region: Monticello AVA, Virginia, United States Price: $19.95 Vintage: 2013 Varietals: 100% Petit Manseng; (12.5% ABV) Winemaker Notes: Returning to our off-dry version of this varietal, the 2013 Petit Manseng carries a nose of pineapple and orange peel, and the bright acidity balances well with the slightly sweet finish. Fermented and aged in stainless steel. Lovely to pair with creamy goat cheese or a spicy dish. 200 cases made Virginia Pour House Notes: Crisp, tropical fruit, honeysuckle, and mineral aromas give way to a nice, weighted palate of honey-drenched pineapple, fuji apple, honeysuckle, and orange zest. Crisp, but fresh and balanced sweetness, with just a hint of residual sugar peaking out mid palate tapering off while approaching the finish.   Producer: Lovingston Winery, Lovingston, Virginia Region: Monticello AVA, Virginia, United States Price: $19.95 Vintage: 2013 Varietals: 100% Petit Manseng; (12.5% ABV) Winemaker Notes: Returning to our off-dry version of …
