The 2016 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 60% new new French oak and the remainder in slightly used barrels. 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc.
His practice of the "vineyard making the wine" through the correct farming practices shows through in his wines.
