At Murphys we are welcoming a slower February after the January we had! Holy Cats! We did reschedule our First Friday tasting due to the weather, please mark your calendars for the 23rd to sample the wine with Lucinda from Robins cellars, read on!
The one absolute good thing about Feb. is not Valentines Day, it's freakin' chocolate! Murphys takes part in Old Towns 6th annual Chocolate Escape. Connor from Republic National is here for his 3rd year. Charlie will supply home baked Ghirardelli cookies and brownies, The Chef's Market will be here selling Chocolate covered Strawberries! Here's your wines!
Chateau Laribotte is a family estate that dates back to the end of the French Revolution in 1855, over more than six generations ago. Their Sautern is brilliant golden color. Attractive complex nose of acacias, white flowers, lemon, and a touch of honey. Light, fruity on the palate with flavors of candied fruits and dry apricots. Long on the palate with backbone, reflecting good acidic balance. Excellent aging potential. Sauterns are amongst the finest dessert wines in the world. It's $19.59
The 430th Anniversary celebrations commemorate the house's establishment in 1588 and the rich history of the oldest port company in operation. Deep ruby black colour with a narrow purple rim. The nose opens with a fine crisp fruitiness, black cherry, blackberry and cassis, and aromas of fresh plum. Delicate floral notes of rose petal and violet emerge to provide elegance and complexity. The wine has the typical Croft roundness and smoothness offset by a fresh acidity and firm but well integrated tannins. The palate is crammed with intense berry fruit and finishes with luscious flavours of strawberry and cherry. A superb reserve Port, displaying all the fine fruit character which is a hallmark of the Croft style. It's $26.99

89 points - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (August 2017)


A beautiful amber gold color with an abundance of Apricot, pear, tangerine, Honeydew melon and a hint of tropical fruit. After the fruit there are some wonderful orange blossom, honeysuckle, rose petals and honey to round out the fragrances of the wine. There is additional a nice creamy vanilla aspect that enhances the fruits and spice characters. The wine is beautifully balanced between the residual sugar and alcohol making for an exquisite finish that last a long time. $19.59

The  2015 Old Vine Zinfandel is a blend of 16 different vineyard blocks of old vine zinfandel vineyards with an average age of 87 years. With berries and spice on the nose, dark, sweet fruit fills the palate with just a hint of black pepper. This wine has a long, lingering finish. When given the choice, I'll take Old Vines anything, every time ~ Charlie. It's $21.59

We rescheduled our First Friday tasting. We were having another bad weather "moment" and I really didn't see the point in encouraging people to come out in that mess. So you'll have the chance to sample those wines on the 23rd from 2p-5p with Lucinda of Robins Cellars! A lot of them are organic and here they are! It's kind of rare for us to showcase two wines of the same grape, much less to same region, BUT! here's an opportunity to sample just that. We have 2 chardonnays from the same region, the Languedoc in France. Another difference with this tasting is all of the wines sampled will be 15% off! Here's the first Chardonnay: 
A pale yellow colour, very fine nose of white flowers, wild mint, honey and white-flesh fruits such as peach and plum. This wine’s elegance and complexity are supported by a beautiful acidity, making it balanced and surprisingly long on the palate. It's $10.99
Here's your organic wine from Domaine Bassac!

Domaine Bassac Jet'aime
A blend of 40%Grenache 40%Cab. Franc 20%Syrah, Charming nose, mushed berries flavours and some crème brûlée notes. Taste of soft aromas of backed berries (blackberries strawberries) and almond. $16.59

Domain Bassac Cabernet Franc, 100% Cabernet Franc
Dark red colour. Marmalade and Ripe black fruit aroma. Smooth and full bodied. Folks in Virginia are more familiar with Cab Franc than most, find out what it's like from it's country of origin. It's $12.99

You're second Languedoc Chardonnay is from Domaine Bassac Le Manpot 100% Chardonnay, it spends 6 month in barrels & has a clear and brilliant in colour with a vibrant nose of toasty and grilled aromas followed by floral notes with a hint of hazelnut. It's $17.99
