Adagio - The Williamsburg Winery

2019 Adagio

 69% Tannat, 23% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon 

The 2019 is a luscious well balanced wine offering loads of ripe berries, black cherry and plums. Along with the fruits are some lovely earthy characters of forest floor, suede and some herbal/spicey notes. Additionally, there is some dark chocolate, and cola which goes well with the fresh vanilla. The oak is well integrated with the fruit and body of the wine. The palette is fruit forward, with a touch of the earthy characters. The tannins are firm yet approachable. I like the overall balance and structure of this Adagio very much and believe it will be one that can age for many years. 

The boldest representation of each vintage year.

Created in the Virginia style, Adagio showcases the charm and elegance of the Old World in perfect harmony with the adventurous spirit and freedom of the New. It’s the melody that drives the Wessex Hundred experience.


“Of particular interest down south is Williamsburg’s Adagio…Adagio is one of the Big Boys and it shows beautifully.”

-Mark Squires, renowned wine critic for the Wine Advocate
