Quick Sip: Say Hooray for Mary’s Cuvée


Hello Friends,

Today’s Quick Sip is the Mary’s Cuvée 2007 from Corcoran Vineyards. Mary’s Cuvée is a joint effort by Virginia wine superstar Mary Watson of Benchmark Hospitality and Corcoran Vineyard’s proprietor and winemaker, Lori Corcoran. I call them the Dynamic Duo! Mary’s Cuvée is a red wine blend consisting of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Tannat. If you know Mary and Lori, then you know this wine. Much like their attractive personalities, this red wine blend is bright, charming, and easy to get along with from first to last sip.

The Mary’s Cuvée 2007 is an easy drinking, fruit-forward wine, filled with good fruit flavors and soft tannins. In the glass, Mary’s Cuvee 2007 displays a garnet-cranberry color with good clarity. The swirl and sniff offers expressive aromas of bright cherry, raspberry, graham cracker touches, and a light sprinkling of spice. On the sip, the wine is smooth and balanced, medium-bodied, with moderate acidity and a nice lingering finish with white pepper nuances. The Corcoran Vineyards Mary’s Cuvée 2007 clocks in at 13.0% alcohol by volume and has a synthetic cork enclosure. This wine is drinking well right now so grab a bottle and enjoy! This limited production, handcrafted wine can be found at Corcoran Vineyard’s tasting room. When you visit, you’ll probably see Lori behind the tasting bar and Mary in the herb garden. If you see one or both, let them know I enjoyed the wine and that read about it on Dezel’s My Vine Spot wine blog!
