Tasting notes


Choice estate grown fruit, whole berries fermented by variety and clones.  Aged 12-15 months in 1-4 year old French oak barrels before final blend.   A unique complexity of Boxwood's finest red wines in 2019.  Smooth texture, mature tannins and supple fruit.

* 100% Estate Grown Fruit from the Middleburg Virginia AVA

Production notes


The quality and bountifulness of the 2019 growing season spurred early on the thought that maybe there’d be a chance to produce a wine once again under the Reserve title, the first since 2015.  This wine is the result.  Individual barrels from several different lots and clones of both Merlot and Cabernet Franc were selected for this wine after vigorous tasting and blending trials.  The original winemaking protocol used for the wines was pretty much followed as for all our wines lots.

Pairing with Food

A wine this great deserves an equally amazing pairing. Serve this with a filet mignon, juicy ribeye, pistachio-crusted lamb, or portobello mushrooms. 

Past Pairings from Boxwood Special Events include:

  • Beef & Bourbon Meatballs
  • Prosciutto-wrapped Asparagus
  • Steak with Arugula, Shaved Parmesan & Balsamic Reduction

"Aromas of baking spice, leather and plum. Medium-bodied with silky, smooth tannins. Nice red fruit, but the palate is all about spice right now. This will expand and soften those falvors with time...Best in 2024."
