Stunning Scores from Suckling

Stunning Scores from Suckling

Posted on November 01, 2018

James Suckling's recently published "American Wine Revolution" covered his and his team's tasting of almost 900 wines from through out the United States (non West Coast). Suckling and team concluded that "dozens of outstanding wines are now available from just about every state and for every taste. And they deserve your attention." Of the 14 different states covered, Virginia flies high with Early Mountain's Eluvium 2015 ranking 2nd highest of every red wine securing a stunning 95 point rating.

We are so pleased that this important fine wine journalist with an International audience is acknowledging the quality revolution afoot here in Virginia and we're so proud to be a leading winery amongst the hundreds reviewed. Every wine we submitted scored 91+!

Eluvium 2015 - 95 points, "This is world class!"

RISE 2015 - 93 points, "Very attractive...delivers good flavor and polish. Better in 2020."

Eluvium 2014- 93 points, "A very polished red blend with impressive freshness and depth."

Quaker Run Cabernet Franc- 91 points, "Sweetly floral red berries and plums, as well as a strawberry edge."
