Wine Recommendation

Boxwood Winery

2010 Boxwood Trellis , Estate
(Middleburg Virginia)

Boxwood Estate has created a set of three Bordeaux blends that are gaining acclaim for Virginia and the Middleburg Virginia AVA. A Merlot led blend with Cabernet Franc and Malbec in significant supporting roles. Trellis is asssembled from wine lots that did not make the primary blends of Boxwood and Topiary, yet offers amazing value at a lower price point.

Deep ruby color. Powerfully complex blend of bramble, spice, hybiscus, thyme, cocoa and saddle leather. Masculine, well knit tannins frame a lively spectrum of bright aromatics. Charged with a racy minerality, dancing on the palate from its entry to its finish, unencumbered by excessive alcohol. Built to last. (13.8% alc)

This wine can be served any day of the week with friends or more formal settings.
