A Top Virginia Red Wine? — 2016 Slater Run Vineyards First Bridge

Hi wine friends…and Happy #WineWednesday!  In this video, I taste and review the 2016 Slater Run Vineyards First Bridge, which is a $38 red wine from Virginia.  The wine is a Bordeaux-blend of 44% Cabernet Franc, 26% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot. And, if you live in the DMV or are visiting the area, Slater Run is doing an amazing job keeping everyone safe during the pandemic.  Cheers!

Next up is a wine I found from watching Wine Guide — a Vina Otano Rioja Crianza 2016.  You can find his review here.
