While at Eastern Wineries Exposition 2014, I found a bottle on a table at one of the dinners. The Waltz Vineyards Crow Woods Cabernet 2010 is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot which has been aged in French oak for 20 months. As with several other Waltz reds I have had, the quality, balance, and complexity were all impeccable. This wine was crafted by a deft hand. Dark stewed red fruits, dark cherries, plums, black berry and a hint of cassis all come across. Good acidity and nicely balanced tannins make this an elegant red wine.
The Crow Woods Cabernet 2010 is confirmation that Waltz continues to be at the forefront of making great quality dry reds in Pennsylvania and continues the momentum the Keystone state has experienced in the last four or five years. And Waltz continues to be a winery that deserves serious consideration by serious wine fans.
