Every December 30th for the last 6 years many of our wine friends have gathered at our friend Susan’s house for a final wine dinner of the year. Last night we enjoyed a wonderful dinner with friends and some amazing wines.
The star of the evening was the 1990 Chateau Margaux. It had a brown, brick edge in the color, due to age. Warren noted on his first impression tobacco and earthy elements; third swirl and air revealed cherry on the palate with sweet tobacco and good acidity. Paul and Bruce noted cranberry while Sylvia caught a whiff of geraniums. It was a wonderful wine that everyone enjoyed! What a great way to end the year!
Happy New Year to all our readers! Thank you for continuing to return to our blog and read about our wine adventures! Cheers!
Merry Christmas! We hope you are enjoying the holidays with some Virginia wine! We’ll be taking the next few weeks off to enjoy the holidays!
Today is our 9th blogiversary! Nine years ago today we started Virginia Wine Time. In that time we’ve visited 171 wineries in Virginia. We still have many more to visit. We have 878 posts about wine with 577 comments from readers like you! While blogs have lost some of their popularity over the years, we do plan to continue to visit Virginia wineries and post about our experiences here. So be sure to come back often to find out where we have been and what we think of the wines we tasted!
A HUGE thank you for continuing to check it and share our experiences. Without our readers, there wouldn’t be a point to the blog.
Paul and Warren
