We started collecting them in 1990, and many have proved to be spectacular years later.
Besides the few Maryland wineries we love, like Black Ankle and Boordy, we have many favorites in Virginia.
Here are just a few samples of excellent big wines years after cellaring.
The Linden 2000 was amazing, not even ready to drink.
