On our way to Virginia Beach, we stopped past James River Cellars just outside Richmond to pick up some wine. If you are headed down 95 South, we suggest you stop off for the 3 mile detour to get wine at exit 89. Great way to start a trip, right? We got three bottles and a 5% discount since we got multiple bottles.

Right now, we will talk more about the Hanover Red which is a red blend we blogged about a few weeks ago. We knew we liked it but forgot a bit how it tasted. The wine actually has a peppery taste and is noticeble on the nose off the bat. You can also smell and taste the Chambourcin and the Merlot.

As you see from the photo, we made due with the Styrofoam hotel cups. But hey, we’re on break.

By the way this would great with red meat.
