Melon. A good Sauv Blanc. May 2022. — 3 months ago
On the Lawn at Tanglewood this afternoon with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our conductor Andris Nelsons is leading BEETHOVEN (Symphony No. 4), HK GRUBER (Aerial, Concerto for trumpet and orchestra) with the amazing Håkan Hardenberger as the trumpet soloist and then STRAUSS (“Dance of the Seven Veils” from Salome). Andris and Håkan happen to be friends, and both are trumpet players, I expect to see some playful nature to their interaction this afternoon. Mr. Hardenberger is a world renowned and virtuousic player, we're always glad to hear him, this will be his 4th Tanglewood appearance in 5 years. We expect various mutes to be employed over the work, a cow horn (yes it is want you think) and then finishing with piccolo trumpet, exciting to have a soloist work multiple instruments over his appearance!
Nose has green apple peel, dry seashell, cold quince, cut lemongrass and faint green herbals.
Palate has floral/ripe pear, yellow apple, green apple, fresh lemon rind and light sweetness on a medium-long finish. Fun bottle for a warm afternoon!
Off dry blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Valvin Muscat, a new offering for 2019, believe only available to the Wine Club or direct purchase at the winery. — 3 years ago
Love this Bordeaux blend! Finger Lakes is certainly doing wine really well! Great balance of tannin and acidity, not crazy in the oak and a smooth finish. — 21 hours ago
A lot of minerality, wet stones, plastic hose, salt. — 24 days ago

Can Sauv, Merlot & Cab Franc from Argetsinger and Two Gorges vineyards. Great smoky, earthy red fruit. Nice tannins, good finish. Quite good. Needs another year or two for a bit more integration. — a month ago
