Dawn Heumann | Special to the Daily | Jenny Wagner barrel tastes merlot in the winery.
India Winery Jenny Wagner's father, Chuck, was a co-founder of the acclaimed Caymus Cabernet and is the patriarch of the Wagner family of winemakers.
Vineyards India From rich and ripe to lean and clean, it is interesting to taste these two wines side by side. Both are made to appeal to palates that like to pair their wines with food. The Merlot is a great choice for hearty stews and grilled meats with big flavors of chocolate and a touch of earth and smoke. The savvy is a wine for seafood and shellfish. Nearly as clear as water in the glass, the wine has enough weight and texture to be a great food wine. These wines will no doubt evolve in vintages to come, but they already show the skills of a young winemaker.

There really is. But, much of the noise is spin. Unwittingly perhaps, certain wine regions, countries and even individual winemakers have developed a "mine's higher than yours" attitude when discussing vineyards' height above sea level. Wine publicists and geeks alike are lapping it up. So, it's important to go beyond the hype and find out what real high- altitude wine is.
Red Wine India 1. Mountain freshness. The higher you go, the more the average temperature drops, and this means potentially lower alcohol and higher acidity, both increasingly sought after for lighter, fresher wines, such as those from Alpine areas. The diurnal changes in temperature (difference between day and night levels) are greater, preserving the acidity. The freshness can also be increased by wind chill in a vineyard on a mountain slope (not essential for high altitude, but often the case). And, mountain slopes often have rocky soils bringing out those sought-after notes of minerality.
Wine To India 2. Mountain intensity. At very high altitudes, such as in Argentina 's high Andean vineyards, the vines are subject to intense sunlight, especially UV-B radiation. This gives grapes more antioxidants and thicker skins, equating to more color, tannin and flavor intensity in reds, and longer aging ability too – all desirable attributes.

Over the weekend, 300 members of the Prince William County chapter of the National Organization for Women called on locals to boycott Wegmans Food Markets unless the Rochester, N.Y.-based company agreed to remove Trump Winery wines at its 10 stores in Virginia. The Trump vineyard is located in Charlottesville, Va.
Wines In India "Certainly if Wegmans is carrying Trump wines, I personally will not shop there," Terry O’Neill, president of the National Organization for Women, told the Washington Post . O'Neill's call for a boycott doubles down on a digital campaign that sprung up just after the election calling on shoppers to #StopTrumpWine.
Red Wine India "Let's demonstrate through economic action that the residents and business owners of Charlottesville will not stand for the hatred espoused by Eric Trump and those like him," a statement on the group's website reads.
