Roanoke Vineyards Blend 1 2004

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

This is a meritage, or a Bordeaux blend. This is based on Cabernet Franc with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon too. Aged for 16 months in French oak (1/3 new) and bottled without filtration. The result is a beautiful full-bodied, spicy red wine.
