Cardinal Point Vineyard, Afton, Virginia
Rockfish Red 2008
Well, I had high hopes for this wine. One of the best Chardonnays we have ever had was from Afton, Virginia. Rivaled only by Stonington Vineyards, Stonington, CT. I think it is the altitude (read good cool mornings) that helps in Afton appellation.
This was good after it breathed. And, it really needed to breath!
While I couldn't find the Rockfish Red Table Wine on their website, I did notice that they had twice as many whites as reds. Yep. Afton is a great producer of whites .... this red was fun to try, but not on my "must have again" list.
