“Virginia’s Heritage NV Virginia Red Wine. This non-vintage wine is a collaboration between 16 Virginia wineries. Dark plum aromas are dense on the nose and aided by black pepper and cocoa tones. It’s plush in feel, with black olive, tobacco and clove flavors. A warm finish with spicy oak and well-integrated tannins is smooth and attractive. —C.D.” This was not one winery or person, but VA 16 wineries believing together we can do something better; It worked!

The Buying Guide includes ratings and reviews of new-release and selected older beverage alcohol products evaluated by Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s editors and other qualified tasters.
TASTING METHODOLOGY AND GOALS
All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5–8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
