08 - Le Renard Rouge, 2008
Winner of the 2011 Virginia Governor's Cup Concentrated black cherry, dense stewed fruits and crushed ripe damsons marry unbelievably well in the handcrafted jewel. The soft Bordeaux like structure resembles their European elegance, style and charm. The fruits continue to hold the oak back until right near the finish and then the fresh toasty oak gently reveals itself forward. Enticing, complex and enjoyable.
