At the Market This Week: Elk Run Vineyards

We're very excited to welcome Elk Run  Vineyards back to Cheverly Community Market this Saturday -- we haven't visited with them since early June, and we've certainly missed their presence at the Market...ad we know you have, too!

This week, Elk Run will bring a wide selection of their very best. Here's a sample:

Dry Wines:
Rich nose of pineapple and flowers with a soft complex finish.

CHARDONNAY – Cold Friday Vineyard, MD 2009  
Full-bodied, crisp and lightly oaked.

GYPSY ROSE 2009 - A rose of Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. Dry with cherry and rose petal aromas, smooth and full-bodied.
RED DOOR - Cold Friday Vineyard, MD 2009
A five-grape blend gives the wine bright red berry fruit flavors,
smooth tannins.  A light easy-drinking red wine.

MERLOT – Cold Friday Vineyard MD 2008   
Rich in color, flavors of cherry and blackberry with soft tannins, good balance and a medium finish.

Slightly Sweet Wines:
GEWURZTRAMINER – Cold Friday Vineyard MD  2010 
Grapefruit and lychee fruit aromas with citrus overtones

Very fruity with peach and apple flavors.  Clean finish. 

Soft yet crisp.  A blush with hints of tropical berry in the nose.

Sweet Wines:
SWEET KATHERINE 2009 (500 ml bottle)  
A sweet after-dinner wine.  Full-bodied with a smoky, 
smooth texture.  Made from Cabernet Sauvignon.

VIN DE JUS GLACE 2007 (375 ml)  
Lavishly sweet ice wine style from the Riesling grape.

This port of Cabernet Sauvignon has rich blackberry flavors 
with a hint of anise and deep color.
In addition, Elk Run will have a selection of their popular women's shirts. These are black v-necks with rhinestone slogans such as "Age Gets Better With Wine", "Group Therapy", "Well Red" and other wine-related sayings. 

Make sure to stop by the Elk Run tent this Saturday...it's a great time to replenish your wine collection and stock up for fall festivities!
