Wine Wednesday!

homegrown commonwealth wine

This week’s selection is a Virginia wine from the Veritas Winery nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains right here in the Commonwealth.  This Cabernet Franc sells for $18 and is very enjoyable.

My notes:

  • cherry color
  • scent of berries and cherry
  • good body with a smooth finish
  • berry and cherry flavors with a slight woody edge
  • soft, subtle flavors

And the winemaker’s notes: (from the Veritas website)

“Ruby red in color and showing beautifully ripe fruit tones in the nose and palate. Medium bodied with layers of Cherry, Cassis, and Blackberry. The tannins are soft, elegant and well integrated, followed by light black pepper spice creating a truly harmonious finish.”
