- Barboursville Viognier Reserve 2014 Product #30274 (In Stock)
A fine follow-up to the Wine Advocate 90 point 2013 - that review is on point here, too: "Fresh, lively, reasonably dense and aromatic, this is completely charming and it comes in at a nice price. The fruit is flavorful on the finish and there is a hint of lemon around the edges. It seems rather lively in its youth. Don't hesitate to dive in–but it will drink great for several years, too."
- Barboursville Octagon Meritage 2013 Product #31067 (In Stock)
The red that put Virginia on the wine map!
"The 2013 Octagon is a blend of 55% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc, 17% Petit Verdot and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 12 months in French oak (40% new, the rest second use). This returns Octagon (after the 2012) to something resembling a more normal blend and to form. It seems lovely and then some. The mid-palate finesse is a winery hallmark. It is gorgeously constructed, with impeccable balance and a nice finish. It has that Old World feel of refinement (forgive the stereotype), but it is also bursting with fresh, young fruit flavor. I'm not sure I've seen an Octagon with more delicious fruit. This is surprisingly approachable, though, with very moderate tannins. An hour or so of aeration in the glass brings it around pretty well. Another thirty minutes finds it to be drinking great."Wine Advocate 89 points
