RdV Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

From arguably the best red wine estate on America's East Coast, this is RDV's third wine, a friendly blend meant for early drinking and sharing. The blend is secret, but it's clearly a lot of Merlot with some Cabernet and, perhaps, Petit Verdot. Rich, ripe, and very stylish, there's nice New World fruit here with plenty of Bordeaux cedar, tobacco, spice and class.

The entry level wine "Friends and Family" from @RdV Vineyards, no need to wait here, this is ready to drink now more like a Beaujolais or a simple Loire Cabernet Franc as the structure is soft and supple and the wine is fruit forward, tasting like cherry, fresh berries and grapes with not a trace of oak.

Super weird oak profile. Was hoping for a nice surprise from my home state!

The RdV friend and family is not commercially available but is a lively serious VA wine, drinkable early, for a nice price/quality. DC peeps and others are lucky to have some!!
