Wine Wednesday!

wine wednesday

 

A local red wine that retails for $10, this was one of our finds from the Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival last year.  It’s a 2008 red table wine, called Toscarora Red, made by Rockbridge Vineyards.

My notes:

  • color- ruby red
  • light
  • smell- tobacco
  • smooth and fresh, only slightly acidic
  • flavors of black plum, black currant, with a slight spice

And the professionals:  … Well, it’s a local wine that hasn’t really had any major reviews and the vineyard website is less than descriptive… so, you’ll need to rely on me, I guess!
