2011, RdV Friends & FamilyUdsolgt
Friends and Family is RdV Vineyards’ third wine, after Lost Mountain and Rendezvous. That means it actually gets into distribution beyond the winery’s direct sales and restaurant placements. This is your chance to taste what the fuss is all about. Friends and Family is a bit angular and edgy, but it shares the lovely blackberry and plum core that characterizes the winery’s two more expensive wines. Good winemaking shows, even in wines that don’t make it into the top bottlings. ABV: 14.5 percent.
