We are so thrilled to share that famed wine critic James Suckling has named Early Mountain's Eluvium 2015 (95 pts) to his "Top 100 American Wine" list. Suckling tasted over 3,300 American wines in 2018 and this is the first year that he highlights wines from throughout the United States instead of a concentrated Napa/Sonoma list. He has been a leader in highlighting the innovative work being done in emerging wine regions, including Virginia, and we are honored to be on this illustrious list.

This honor follows numerous other highlights for Eluvium including a spot in the Governor's Case earlier this year. Forbes contributor Katie Kelly Bell answers "Eluvium" in her gift guide... when asked the question, "can you suggest a nice gift wine in the $50?".

And VinePair recently awarded it an A+ encouraging that "It is time to start paying attention to Virginia wine and this is just one example of how beautiful they can be. Thomas Jefferson would swoon over this Bordeaux style blend that sings with elegance and depth. The tannins are well entwined into the wine, allowing the notes of cedar and wood spice to waft into warm plum and a whisper of vanilla."
