Beautiful Cab Franc nose, bright tight low tannin, substantial fruit. — 20 days ago

S.A.T. Camaretas

Frontón de Oro Tinto Gran Canaria Tintilla Listan Negro 2017

Covid -19 wines part one: out in our quad, with our socially distanced friends and neighbors, drinking by the Hudson. After some sx and being out of work but much better. What better way to start to celebrate recovery but with a Canary Islands red- qpr too, at under 16$. Has a deep maraschino cherry thing, not too dissimilar to Cru Bojo. I love Canary Islands, and in the age of a pandemic, we all need what/who we love. — 2 years ago

Reserve Gamay Noir 2016

Very nice subtle red. Light pleasant nose. Well balanced fruit and tannin with subtle lingering finish. Not bold - but unique and worth a try. — 3 years ago

Primitivo di Manduria 2019

Drank with Humbolt Co turkey sandwiches from Cherry St Kitchen on picnic at Blue Hole Park near Lake Hudson. Excellent rose and pairing. Wine was a gift from dad from Easton, MD. One of the best roses I’ve had. Best with food. — 2 years ago

Château Coutet

Chartreuse de Coutet Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

Quite consistent with my notes from ~6 months ago:

Nose has over-ripe apricot, almond oil, marzipan, meringue cookie and cold butter.
Palate has warmed apricot pie with extra flakey, buttery crust, sweet sand, white flower honey and mango.

Admittedly I love Sauternes and have many bottles, yet it's a rarity on opening and posting to the Community. We paired this bottle with a hard, smoked goat cheese from a local, Hudson valley producer, a solid match of sweet and salty.

Merlot Malbec 2014

Just short of a 90 for me ... but one of the best Hudson Valley reds I’ve tasted. Pleasant nose, a little bite of tannins at the front, but a really pleasant and long lingering finish. Maybe needs another year. Overall a good value and if you can get to the vineyards - the view is spectacular! — 3 years ago

Patrice Colin

Pierre François Coteaux du Vendômois Pineau d'Aunis Blend 2018

Nose has metallic blackberry, white pepper, ripe plum, prune and baking spices.

Palate has tart plum, dried blackberry, white pepper on mashed black cherries and potting soil. Medium body, light minerality, medium finish. Nice wine, young, could really benefit from a few years of proper resting.

60% Pineau d’Aunis / 30% Pinot Noir / 10% Cabernet Franc

A solid pairing with local (Jacüterie/Hudson Valley, NY) British Bangers on the grill tonight, peppery wine with well spiced, fresh sausage, yum!

A new Italian wine to me, courtesy of @Mark Flesher opening this alongside his ‘16 Kistler Hudson. I tend to enjoy my Italian wines with bigger fruit and this one was pretty close to hitting that. Still has classic notes of tar, rose petal and bing cherries, but the fruit has shed its harsh tartness of its youth with age and is channeling some darker mulled traits. Mark mentioned cola as a note when we were tasting this and I think that was one of the main notes that stood out here. — 3 years ago

Black cherry and mulberry on the nose and entry. Nose has a red cola note that doesn't seem to translate to the palate. A little bit of tobacco and bay leaf here. A little atypical for your typical Barolo for sure. More on the lean side. Finishes with some dried herb and sweeter young oak tannin and almost with a BBQ Lay's potato chip finish. Can almost taste the light toast on the barrels. I am really not sure how many more years this one has on it, but drinking well now and glad I decided to open it
