John’s December Pick of the Month

Virginia Red Wine



Anghel is one of the newest wine offerings in the state.  It’s the creation of Jason Burrus, a professional winemaker with a well-known Virginia winery. His first bottling is a blend of 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Petit Verdot.  The wine displays a deep garnet hue in the glass with a nose of black cherry, plum, anise and a touch of mint. The palate reflects an Old World style that is focused elegance and subtly of black fruit, mineral notes and spice framed by firm, balanced acidity.  This a quintessential food wine and will continue to blossom as the years roll by.  With winter here, pair with rustic beef ragu and a fresh loaf of Ciabatta.  Drink now through 2018.

Anghel wine is available on line at  Or, call Jason Burrus at 540.305.6305.
