Dry Perry 2019

One of the best. Sidra-style perry made in NY, but not faddish at all. John Reynolds, one of my favorite iconoclastic wine/cider-makers, has been doing it this way for decades. Micro production. Loads of VA but flat out delicious; vibrant, textured, rich and soulful. Do yourself a favor and find some of this if you like natural wine. I’d argue this kills almost any high-VA natural wine. Why? There’s a historical precedent for the style, the flavor profile makes sense, it’s clean and well-made. Great stuff. — 7 days ago

@Erik Longabardi Yes, some batches are less sidra style, all really amazing. Just had some sparkling paw paw wine he gave me that blew my mind.

Extremely fruity with a strong note of melon. This wine is delectably sweet and tangy! — a day ago

Boundary Breaks Vineyard

Finger Lakes Unoaked Chardonnay 2019

A supple fragrance of leaf fronds and slight tropical fruits like pineapples, lychee, and mangoes. Finally some underlying pine aromas.

A little less balanced, but in a good way. Leaning towards higher acid, but the tropical sweet notes balance this out, which is a nice playfulness.

It looks stunning in a glass, and has that end note of unctuous salinity and the overall freshness of skiing through pines.

Fresh, minerals, a bit underwhelming TBH compared to some of the other Rieslings from this region we’ve had of recent. — 16 days ago

You should seek their single vineyard offers, better QPR.

Elizabeth's Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2018

Wrong vineyard 🤷🏻‍♀️ Smells like hard-boiled eggs lol but on the pallet, roasted and malty, maybe some dark cherries. Hmmm 🤔 — 6 days ago

Bloomer Creek Vineyard

Tanzen Dame Finger Lakes Halbtrocken Edelzwicker Gewürtztraminer Blend 2016

Orange blossom honey, pears, funk, good funk, tangerine peels.

Mmm orange blossoms. Enough funk to curl up with some Richard Brautigan short stories and wonder about Big Sur waves crashing against cliff side mountainous triangles rising up from the sea foam.

My idea of a fun wine.

Enjoying the new couch/coffee table setup.
