Tasting Notes

Tim Atkin Rating's Rating: 89 points

This is a full-bodied rich wine with supple soft tannins but with a lively long finish. The nose has a hint of cinnamon, blue berries, fruit cake and wild heath.

The name Missing Virgin refers to a printing error on a Virgin Island stamp. 
The virgin figure was omitted from the stamp, hence the nick name, “Missing Virgin”. St. Ursula was a virgin martyr who lived between the third and fifth centuries A.D. She was born in Britain, avoided marriage to a pagan king and is believed to have been slain for her faith with 10,000 virgin companions at Cologne, Germany. Christopher Columbus named the Virgin Islands in her honor.
