Product Description

Pearmund Cellars Virginias Heritage is made from 44% Merlot, 25% Petit Verdot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 9% Tannat

In recognition of the 400th anniversary of winegrowing in the Americas, Virginia's finest producers were asked to each donate a barrel of their best red Bordeaux-style varietal wine. These were then blended together and bottled to create a limited-edition commemorative wine called Virginia's Heritage.

A truly Virginia wine, Virginia's Heritage represents Virginia's burgeoning wine scene while at the same time paying homage to the quadricentennial establishing Virginia as the cradle of winemaking in the Americas.

The wine is lead with Merlot and Petit Verdot. Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat then Cabernet Franc supporting the blend. The wine seems more of a Spanish Rioja Alta style than of Bordeaux blend as first expected. Dark fruit such as wild black cherry, spicy notes of cinnamon and vanilla and on the nose and mid-pallet. A pleasant earthy and smokiness with good texture, a long, refined finish with notes of sweet tobacco, cedar and spice, cherry liqueur aftertaste which will further develop over time in the bottle.

Limited edition, limited quantities.

16 independent Virginia wineries made their share, then wine was collected, blended and aged an additional year prior to bottling.

Review:

"A fun and delicious blend of petit verdot, merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and tannat from 16 wineries across Virginia. The vintage is 2016, though the label doesn’t indicate that. Round and soft texture, yet it’s fresh and vivid. Full body. Lots of spicy, meat and plum character with some currants. Flavorful finish. Drink now."
- James Suckling (October 2018), 93 pts

"This nonvintage wine is a collaboration between 16 Virginia wineries. Dark plum aromas are dense on the nose and aided by black pepper and cocoa tones. It’s plush in feel, with black olive, tobacco and clove flavors. A warm finish with spicy oak and well-integrated tannins is smooth and attractive. —C.D."
