North Carolina Wine Month

NC Wine Month Week 1 Recap

It’s hard to believe that the first week of September is already over! Last week we enjoyed a delicious selection of NC Wines.  You can keep track of our progress over on our NC Wine Month 2015 Challenge page.  –check out our new map, too!

In case you missed our postings, here’s the highlights:

9/1: Grüner Veltliner from Burntshirt Vineyards – A light a crisp wine from the Western North Carolina mountains.  Tart apples and a cool honey palate made for an enjoyable wine.  Perfect for hot September days or slightly cool evenings.

9/2: Raylen Vineyards Tasting at Crafty Beer Guys – We stopped in at Crafty Beer Guys to celebrate the release of Gravity Magazine.  While we were there, we were able to taste four wines from Raylen.  A sparkling, a chardonnay and two reds made for a great wine tasting.

9/3:  Cabernet Franc from Silver Fork Vineyards & Winery – A delightfully fruity and delicate red wine, it had a refined flavor profile with a slightly nutty finish.

9/4: Selfish (port style wine) from Lazy Elm Winery – After a long day we decided to unwind with a glass of the Selfish.  A Cabernet Franc base fortified with brandy.  A dark and smooth wine perfect to settle down for the evening.

9/5: Pinot Grigio from Mountain Brook Vineyards – A full-bodied Pinot Grigio showing tropical flavors and a light creamy finish.

9/6: Nebbiolo from Grove Winery & Vineyards – This wine was dark and full flavored with a smooth plum flavor that moved into a cedar finish.

9/7: Warrior Red from Cellar 4201 – This dark red blend was rich in fruit flavors and had a delicate oak and chalky finish.
