Give this an hour of air or up to 10 years in cellar. “59% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 18% Petit Verdot. Mid to dark crimson. Fresh and appetising on the nose but just a little grainy and skinny. The oak is pushing through the fruit at the moment. It is appetizing and reminds me of a very well-groomed St-Émilion. Good savoury finish but just a bit gawky at the moment.” Jancis Robinson 16+/20

About as fine as #vawine gets. Glad I didn't have to pay for it.

Very much in line with 2012 in style, but with less structure and virility. An extra year in bottle and a tougher 2011 vintage makes this one an even earlier drinker than 2012. Drink now to 3-4 years. @RdV Vineyards

Couldn't resist a taste of the new vintage. A baby of a wine . . . but with great potential.

Medium weight, terroir-driven Bordeaux blend with unusual polish for Virginia wine

Wow. Best...the best...Virginia wine I've ever had. Blind taste and you won't believe where its from.

First time trying the 2011 which was a tough vintage in VA. Medium bodied with red fruits and good bit of acidity. Will check back in on other bottles in a couple of years.

Fantastic. Very smooth; a bit lighter than Lost Mountain. Tasted this at RdV Vineyards, then had a bottle with Julia Child's Bifteck Sauté à la Bordelaise. Superb!

Really lovely and silky. Textbook Right bank style. With just a tiny hint of VA. It's everything they say it is. And made from a crappy year no less. Very impressive.
