Boxwood Winery, Topiary, Virginia 2007

Type: Red Still
U.S. Price: $25.00
U.K. Price: £23.99

California’s Napa Valley might be the assumed home of the U.S. wine industry, but the much older state of Virginia has actually been producing wines since European colonization in the 17th century.

The Boxwood winery only produces red wines from five varieties of grapes certified by the French government, and this blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot described by Decanter judges as "supremely alluring," offering "attractive, smoky, cherry and plum fruit, with cocoa notes and savory, violet and coffee aromas."
