100% Tannat. Well-balanced port-style wine. Aromas of chocolate ganache, candied black cherries, blue and black fruit compote, and Carmel. Full palate coating wine that just sit there for a while exudes chocolate ganache, cherries, and bramble compote and just don't want it to disappear. Aged for 6 years in oak barrels, adding to the complexity. But the acidity takes over balancing the sweetness and alcohol. Desiccant, well crafted, long finish.
Food Pairing: strawberries, cherries jubilee, chocolate bar, and a good movie
95 Points - "Bone Orchard ranks among the finest port-style wines produced in Virginia. It gushes with brandied dark fruit and chocolate ganache on the nose; and on the palate, fruit compote, blackberry liqueur and chocolate-covered cherries over a caramelized finish. Quenching acidity lifts and balances the sweetness and alcohol resulting in a dessert wine that is spirited, not syrupy." - National Wine Review 11/2019
