Want the perfect gift for the wine lover in your life? Early Mountain has the solution! We will have two special Valentines gift packages available for purchase. Choose from our 2009 Muscat Dolce dessert wine or our 2008 Merlot. Either wine choice will be beautifully packaged along with a box of 8 hand-selected Gearhart's truffles.
Wine Tasting Notes:
2008 Early Mountain Vineyards Merlot
Prepare to be "intoxicated" by boysenberry brush and crushed lavender as you fasten your taste buds for a ride that is as deeply structured as it is colored. The hue and taste is redolent of a blackberry patch that's slightly blue around the edges. Expect a complex delivery of black fruits with a leathery note more likened to the smooth-sided strap . . .albeit with just enough grip to keep its profile riding out in the distance. Our Merlot typically takes center stage on our estate, delivering wines that are bold and structured with integrated tannins on the finish.
2009 Early Mountain Vineyards Muscat Dolce
From Estate vines in Madison, Virginia, this 100% Muscat was made in a port style and fortified with local brandy. Aged for 2 years in barrels, the wine was exposed to oxygen in order to obtain nutty, sherry-like notes. Natural sweetness from the Muscat grape is balanced with high acid from a good vintage. Its aged nutty character compliments powerful notes of citrus and white fruits.
Truffles Include:
Criolla
Extra bittersweet (73.5%) Venezuelan single bean chocolate ganache with natural cacao nibs, dipped in dark chocolate.
Maya
Rich, bittersweet chocolate ganache flavored with cinnamon, Ancho chili and orange, dusted with cocoa.
