Berserkers tasting notes on Virage: forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=36589
I can definitely vouch for the quality of Virage and Cab Franc from Hyde. I’m still periodically opening bottles of 2005 Havens Bourriquot that really impress, and I tried a barrel sample of the 07 Virage a couple of years ago that kept the tradition going. Nice offer.
Emily can step in and clarify the exact arrangement if she gets a chance, but she took over a selection of the vineyards from the now-defunct Havens Wine Co. So essentially this stuff is made from the same sources as Havens Bourriquot–their right bank Bordeaux CF-Merlot blend.
Hi Beserkers - D.Rod is right! Virage is producing at Alpha Omega with the help of fun and talented Jean Hoefliger - we have no relationship to Havens Wine Cellars before or after its demise–I was inspired by those wines and took over vineyard blocks developed for former HWC. I’m in for the evening if there are more questions.
For those of you who couldn’t possibly research all the great offerings, I am keeping the Virage BD coupon codes open through the weekend. Welcome to the cooler side of Napa Valley No hustle, no pressure. Affordable, great wine.
I am drinking a bottle of 2007 Virage I opened Wednesday evening and I think this is the best it has ever tasted…(not that any of you could keep an open bottle quite that long).
I got another request this morning, so I will keep the codes live on the website until EOM. Love you guys (meaning, and girls) and your passion for discovering new flavor expression brought to you by grapevines.
Scott W speaks the gospel with this wine. Scott, was that 3hr in a decanter or in the bottle?
I just polished of a bottle myself, opened Friday 11am, decanted and straight back in the bottle, just a couple ounces removed, then re-corked, no gas, left on counter, and on Saturday night… Grand Cru Bordeaux. Just insane. The bright acidity takes supporting role and no longer dominates, the texture becomes fully leaded, tightly-layered flavors and really deep dark minerality and that bittersweet cocoa finish… Like blood to a vampire that minerality. Very compelling stuff. Sorry, don’t mean to be gushing over my own wine, but I encourage patience. No doubt this portends good aging, but you can always buy more–I’m planning to keep a library of like 100 cases of the 2007 it’s so good.
