For my taste profile, I normally enjoy Hudson (and now Powder House, with it being younger vines) on the young side…somewhere at 4-5yrs. UV-SL kind of falls in the middle for me, so I gave the 2017 UV-SL a test drive.
Wasn’t able to prepare this with a decant, but it needed it. Richly pear colored in the glass, it has a lot of bright fruits like peach, pear and tropical pineapple with honeysuckle, honey roasted nuts and a mineral note. The palate is really dense with a minty flair, as well as sea salt, popcorn kernel, and signature lemon cream. This improved the longer it was open. Fruit started to play nicely with the savory notes. This 2017 came across a bit fat at first and then balanced out. Based on my experiences so far, this will improve with a few more years, but it was really enjoyable with an hour or two of air. — 22 days ago
Dangerously drinkable. And a very pretty color! — 20 days ago
There aren’t many NY state wines I have found memorable but this one definitely deserves praise. Not as sexy as a French or California Cab Franc but great purity and balance (20% Merlot added). Excellent fruit and enjoyable mid weight red. Congrats to the winemaker!!👍👍 — 7 days ago
Fruity flavorful summer patio sipping wine. Sweeter than what I usually prefer, but nice in the right context. — 23 days ago

Natural Southwest French white blend for under 15$-Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, semillion & Chenin Blanc. I don’t like Alsatian blends but this I do: like a rich Muscadet. Floral but not heavy on the Sauvignon Blanc, balanced. Celebration of lifting of Covid restrictions in New York State, with friends on the Hudson — a month ago
