Purchased at Harris Teeter grocery store in Williamsburg VA, $8.99, 13% alcohol. This is one level higher than entry and is available for $10.50 from WW. Dense dark red with an orange hue in the glass, pink-orange ring. Light, dusty herbal oak on the nose initially, followed by pronounced cassis. Also some underlying dark berry and bell pepper notes. Black currant, blackberry & a bit of cherry blend on the palate with tongue-coating molasses tannins. Soft but full texture. Acidity shines mid-palate on, and the medium finish tickles the tongue with sweet fruit and minerality. This is a MARKEDLY different expression of Cab than the typical American version (Cali, Washington). The small amount of Merlot is noticeable. There is a round fullness to this wine, and to several other Virginia wines I've tasted, that shout "Francais!" to me. Thomas Jefferson was a francophile, the warm humid climates are similar, the VA blends lean towards Bordeaux & Rhone....makes sense to me.

rckr1951 Bruce, the Aglianico that you got needs significant air time. 2 days for sure. Plan accordingly.

bjwdad Two DAYS?!? Is that 2 days in a carafe or with the bottle open, or...?

rckr1951 Yup. With the bottle open at times and then re-sealed. I guess now that I think about it had it open for about half the time, but it needed air to get going and then time to integrate closed. But I opened mine up and then put in down in the cellar after my original tasting & review, open. I corked it when I went to bed and opened it the following morning an let it sit open for about 6 hours the corked it again until I drank that evening.

rckr1951 I guess that's actually about 36 hours.

bjwdad I may wait until we're back in Phoenix to try it. I won't be living in a dorm that prohibits alcohol!
