Congratulations to Linganore Winecellars

Linganore Winecellars Merlot Wins Maryland's Governor's Cup!!
It's official! Governor Robert L. Ehrlich presented Linganore Winecellars winemaker Anthony Aellen with the 2005 Governor's Cup Award at the Maryland Wine Festival for his 2002 Merlot. Aellen described the wine as easy-drinking proof that Maryland can make great wines. The Governor's Cup competition judges described the wine as soft, well-balanced with good structure, and bright cherry aromas. Their Maryland Merlot is grown in Queen Anne's County at the Hemsley Fortune Vineyard. This wine is full bodied with a soft oak background, rich in black cherry, vanilla and plum overtones.
