2010 Cabernet Franc Reserve (Landmark Series)
2013 Atlantic Seaboard Wine Competition

Michel Dresser of The Baltimore Sun wrote on August 21:
This is not only the greatest Maryland wine I've tasted in 30 years of sampling the home state product, it's the best red wine from the Eastern United States I've ever encountered. That's not just my view: Boordy's cab franc took Best of Show in the recent Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association competition involving wineries from 12 states.
This wine is as smooth, elegant and complex as a top-flight St. Emilion from France, but it has a character all its own. The black cherry flavors and herbal notes are penetrating and persistent. Any Maryland wine lover with a decent budget and a spark of interest in local wine will want to stash away several bottles to share with friends from California and Europe.
There's a small amount in better wine stores, but most of the stock is at the winery in Hydes in northeast Baltimore County. It's worth the trip to Maryland's oldest winemaking operation, which opens a new winery barn next month.. (History buffs: This vineyard is on the Civil War's South Mountain Battlefield.)
