Ravines Wine Cellars

Finger Lakes Chardonnay 2015

Nose has ripe yellow apple, creamy oak goodness, pineapple core and browned butter.

Palate has ripe pineapple, under-ripe pineapple, ripe yellow apple, light oak notes with notable acidity still and medium finish. Still many, many years to go on this wine, drink 2025-2030+ from proper storage. Decanted 8H.

I'll reiterate prior comments, this is a unique wine...Winery notes:
"80% of the grapes were immediately whole cluster pressed. The Chardonnay was fermented in French oak with about 16% new oak. The remaining 20% of the grapes were placed, single layer, in shallow trays for six weeks following the traditional Passito method. After natural dehydration, the grapes were gently pressed and fermented in barrels. The two fractions were blended prior to bottling. A full malolactic fermentation lowered the acidity and improved the texture of the wine. The wine was gently filtered prior to bottling."

Lake Erie Noiret 2018

Had a glass at the winery and it tasted good enough to buy a bottle and bring home. So … at home , it pours a deep ruby color. Aroma of red raspberry and berries and a hint of smoke? . Cherries and raspberries in the middle with a dry pucker at the finish. — a day ago

Glenora Wine Cellars

Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2014

Quite lovely. Very light gold color. Petrol and veggie nose. Wine coats the palate and is a classic Riesling. Could have some more zip, but excellent QPR. — 23 days ago

Bloomer Creek Vineyard

Tanzen Dame Barrow Vineyard Reserve Dry Riesling 2017

Fresh honey, apricot preserves, “smells like jam,” bae says from the sofa.

Liquid honeycomb, slight effervescence and slight petrol note round it for the perfect balanced sip.

Love the straw golden reflection in the glass, too.

Seneca Lake Dry Pinot Noir Rosé 2019

I love this wine. Don’t snooze on these New York State wines. Lovely and refreshing, tart and smooth mouthfeel, aromatic and just a joy to drink. But great with a variety of foods: the acidity and length pair well with spicy and rich foods alike. Get this and enjoy it! — 8 days ago
