This wine is always well rated, and I this review from the Spectator hits it spot on:
90 Points: Wine Spectator Sep 30, 2017
“This lively red delivers black cherry and licorice flavors, with smoky and leafy notes. Fresh and focused, in a balanced structure that is energetic and graceful. Made in a clean, modern style. Drink now through 2024. 8,850 cases made.” (90 pts.)

In the glass, you know you’re drinking classic, traditional Bordeaux. The nose is rich, round and inviting, while ripe blackcurrant, cherry, vanilla, spice, and subtle smoke notes converge on the supple medium-bodied palate.

Simply put, this wine is a bargain! It’s offered almost exclusively as a restaurant pour, so it’s not often available in retail. I can see exactly why it’s so popular in restaurants — it’s a great pair for a multitude of cuisine. and it’s terrific simply on it’s own!Read More
Let’s make our voices heard! It’s inconceivable to me; however, it’s possible there may be even more tariffs on wine and food imports from Europe. This round could be significantly higher and would encompass all of Europe instead of only those countries directly involved with the Airbus subsidies. Scroll down below for details on how…Read More

Our Mission Statement
In 1993, the Asheville Wine Market opened in downtown Asheville committed to the idea that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a great bottle of wine. Over twenty years later, now under the ownership of long time employee Laurence Weaver, that sentiment hasn’t changed. The Asheville Wine Market is still excited to be offering great wines at a great price, with an enthusiastic staff at the ready to help you find just the right bottle for your meal or occasion. We love talking about wine almost as much as we love to drink it, and hold firmly to the belief that wine is made to be enjoyed by everyone. After all, good wine is good wine, whether it costs $10 or $100. It’s the wine itself that interests us, as well as your enjoyment of it, not the price tag.
