Before I recap my trip to Virginia and Maryland this past week, I wanted to catch up on a few wine reviews from my previous trip to Virginia. Tonight’s review features the 2002 Reserve Merlot from Breaux Vineyards. A perennial favorite and one of the top producers in the state, Breaux Vineyards is located in Loudoun County (read more about my visit here).

This wine has a dark red color and an expressive nose, showing rich, dark fruits and a little earth. On the palate, notes of black cherry, licorice, and plum. Well structured and smooth. The 2002 Reserve Merlot is a great example of the potential of the variety in Virginia. The wine retails for $39 but is available from their website for $30. I recommend grabbing a bottle or two before it’s too late. Better yet, if you’re in the area, stop by and tell them sent you! Cheers!
