Tasting - "Horton Vineyard Red"
Variety: Blended from Horton Vineyards choicest vinifera grapes
Region: Gordonsville, VA
Price: $15 regular / $8.95 close-out sale
Winery Review: Like the beautiful Tudor-style winery where it was born, this rich red wine from the Piedmont of Virginia has a solid foundation of tannins from a tasteful, graceful superstructure of lush dark fruit. The red-roofed signature tower is likewise evoked by the long, balanced finish.
My Review: The color was a deep dark red showing a full body. The nose was clean and fruity. It had a smooth finish with a nice aftertaste. I tasted it with spaghetti with a venison meat sauce.
