The 2009 Maryland Governor’s Cup
The new kid on the block, Black Ankle Vineyards, has won their second Governor’s Cup in as many years. The soon-to-be-released 2007 Crumbling Rock follows its predecessor, the 2006 Crumbling Rock, in winning Maryland’s top prize. The Crumbling Rock is a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. Situated on the Frederick Wine Trail, Black Ankle Vineyards is located in Mt. Airy, Maryland and offers dry, European-style wines that are hand-crafted from estate-grown grapes. Not to be outdone, their 2008 Bedlam, was awarded best white blend. A tremendous feat for a winery that opened their doors in 2008. Congratulations!
