Palate has sliced lime, grapefruit peel, lemon zest, green apple Jolly Rancher candy, dry-crushed slate, under-ripe peach, medium acidity, medium finish. Future bottles should be 2025+

Slightly more weight to the palate than the 2015 vintage tasted alongside.

@Ron R No, by the chiminea in our backyard, beautiful day in the Berkshires. Although we've been to the winery numerous times.

Finger Lakes Pinot Noir 2013

Nose has dried grape vines, tobacco, ripe cherry, moist soil, wet leather, tree bark and horse stall. (Somewhat reminiscent of young Fixin or Nuits-S-G, being honest, good things to associate.)

Palate has ripe cherry, vine bark, tart cherry, dried blackberry, tar, (minor) bitter herbs (anise & fennel bulb), muddy potting soil with slight tannins on the long finish. I'd love to revisit this wine in 10+ years as it would likely be just stellar, it has all the structure to get it there, from proper storage. Future bottles may be 2028-30+. Decanted 4H.

$24 direct from the winery cellar, to our cellar, to our glasses tonight. Being in the wine club has good benefits. 👌

Maximilien Finger Lakes Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

Deep@purple, lighter cool- weather cab. This is 57% cab, 43 merlot. Unlike the 2015, no cab franc. You can identify it as cab- I’d call this a summer- friendly cab. Nice with food but yummy on its own. I want to grow grapes and make wine in the Finger Lakes. Fortunately I’ll b winning the lottery any day now. — 3 months ago

White Springs Vineyard Dry Riesling 2017

Nose has lime zest, lime juice, green hay, wet granite/limestone pebbles, oxidized green apple peel, polyethylene tubing and tangerine peel. (Quite a Silvaner-like nose.)

Decanted 3H, double-decanted into the bottle, then cooled for service.

Argetsinger Vineyard Dry Riesling 2016

Truncated notes because crazy dinner at my brother’s with 6 dogs and more humans and frantic attempts to remember to properly distance.

This dry Riesling had great balance and depth. Finger Lakes at their best.

Finger Lakes Chardonnay 2013

Nose has grilled lemons, lemon buttercream, lime zest, distant brown butter, orange zest, dried apricot and (minor) struck flint.

Palate has dried lemon peel, pineapple core, buttercream, toasted walnuts, warm banana with faint sweetness on the very long finish with medium acidity. A great wine, decanted 4H and will appreciate at least another 3-4H of opening. Future bottles may be 2024-26+. Very good now, maybe one of the best FLX Chardonnay's I've experienced.

Partial Appassimento method for a portion of the grapes, really yields some extra character and depth to the wine. Only guy doing this in the FLX, Morten Hallgren, to the best of my knowledge. I'm coming to the altar here, it's the right way to handle his Chardonnay style. 👍
