The 2015 Hardscrabble from Linden is a Left Bank Bordeaux blend from one of Virginia's most regarded winegrowers - Jim Law.
Greatly stuctured with a long finish and notes of dark berries. Aged 21 months in 50% new new French oak and the remainder in slightly used barrels. 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and 19% Cabernet Franc.
His practice of the "vineyard making the wine" through the correct farming practices shows through in his wines.
