Mountain Run: A My Nova Wine Blog First… A guest post!
When my sister and Favorite Brother in Law (FBI) came to visit last week, they stopped at Culpepper’s Mountain Run Winery. This is the perfect opportunity for a first here on your favorite Wine Blog, a Guest Post!
They also shared their tasting notes with me, which include the following:
Merlot: Aromatic cherry, finish of toasty caramel
Charonnay: Clean and crisp, mineral forward, medium finish
Chardonnay (oaked): Reminders of fave CA Chardonnay
Rosé: light, warm weather, may need a little more time, but like it!
Cab: not as bold as expected. leather and tobacco. Opened up nicely.
Meritage: Animal and floral aroma. Very clean (jokingly described as turnip!) (but in a good way!)
Petition IV – -2021 – heavy tannin – felt older than 21. Good for beef and lamb.
I think they did a great job, and they clearly have a smarter palate than mine, what with identifying the smells and fruits and all.. They brought four bottles homewith them, and I’m hoping to try at least one when we get back to my house (we’re at the beach right now and binged on wines from my collection). Sounds like they want you to check out Mountain Run soon!
