TRIO
Erato, Rosé & Clio

List Price $91.00. $81.90 (10% Discount). Wine Club Members $72.80 (20% Discount).

Erato NV
NV Erato, the goddess of Greek mythology derived her name from the word “lovely,” which is what this aromatic steel fermented wine is. The distinct aroma comes from a small portion of Muscat Blanc á Petit Grains grown on slate soils in our highest elevation vineyard. It is a splendid aperitif wine. ABV 12.1%.

Rosé 2020

This rosé was made from estate grown, low-yield, French-government certified Cabernet Franc clones developed in Bordeaux vineyards. It is a product of hand-tended and harvested grapes from the amazing 2020 vintage. ABV 11.9%.

Clio 2017
This is a fine wine from a fine vintage. Its flavors are melded beautifully and flow seamlessly; both a sensual and cerebral pleasure at the same time. (It is a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Franc and Petit Verdot.) Matured in French barrels. ABV 14.2%.

DUO
Thalia & Cabernet Franc

List Price $59.00. $53.10 (10% Discount). Wine Club Members $47.20 (20% Discount).

Thalia 2019

This wine is a rich blend of the Rhone Valley white grapes Marsanne and Roussanne. It is fermented and undergoes malolactic conversion in French barrels where it is aged sur lees for one year to produce a complex, layered wine of depth and balance. This a wine for those who enjoy a full and rounded white with roasted turkey. ABV 13.2 %.

Cabernet Franc NV

This is a non-vintage wine. It is a blend of estate grown Cabernet Franc from the 2017 and 2018 harvest. While almost all of our wines are from a single vintage, occasionally we find blending two or more years from a particular vineyard block presents a better wine than one stand-alone year. ABV 13.7%.

A Note on Pricing

Because viticulture is difficult in Virginia (heavy rains, late season rots, mildews, hard Spring frosts, cold winters, etc.) some wineries believe it justifies charging a premium for their wines. We don’t share that view – we chose to develop a vineyard and winery here and nobody should be expected to subsidize that choice. Hand-tended and harvested vines produce better wine, so the added expense of that kind of labor intensive viticulture is recouped in a bottle price that is objectively reflective of that quality. At Muse we insist on a fair value-to-price ratio, i.e. there’s no premium charged just because it’s Virginia wine – each wine we sell must stand on its own two feet as worth its price. Our quartet selections can be put up against a similar style of wine (for example, a barrel fermented white (e.g. white Burgundy) or a Bordeaux blend, e.g a Napa/Sonoma meritage) at the same retail price – assuming you can even find one in the $20-30 range – and our wine will always equal and in most cases exceed the quality of that wine. If you ever have reason to disagree, please tell us.
