Beautiful Cab Franc nose, bright tight low tannin, substantial fruit. — 20 days ago
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
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
Cabernet Chianti blend at Vico in Hudson. Nice.

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. — 3 years ago
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
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! — 2 years ago
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
Nice red from Chile at Food Studio Hudson.
