Wine Enthusiast Ratings
They like us, they really like us! We received some excellent news from the Wine Enthusiast
) last month that we are excited to share with everybody - Tarara's
was rated 88 points
, making it one of the top three WE rated Cabernet Francs ever from Virginia! And one of those other top three was our 2010 Cabernet Franc, giving us two out of three of the highest rated wines! We feel that this speaks to the quality of wine that is being produced and the exciting future on the horizon. After Epicurience Virginia, we only have 5 cases
of 2012 Cabernet Franc left to sell in the Retail Room, and we are opening this inventory up to online sales - first come, first served, so get it while you can!
