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.

Sourgal Moscato d'Asti 2019

Green apple, honeysuckle, pineapple, and lemon cream. Almost reminds me of a Riesling Kabinett, with the sour sweet touch. Richard likes it. — 23 days ago

Les Rouliers Vin de France Chenin Blanc 2015

A reductive nose, which blew off in about 20 minutes. In the mouth you stop for a second and ask yourself, Jura? Oxidative palate yet crazy levels of freshness. A fire hose of acidity that assaults your mouth but is joined by pure fruit. Wonderful intense finish.
Like Vatan, singular and not everyone’s taste.

@Joe Weinberger I am going to cop-out and say I do not know. I have not had enough data points to give you a well informed answer. It has the requirements to age but I have no clue what will happen. Better not sure, different probably. I have a few of these so I will let them sleep. I do have a ‘13 Les Noels that I will probably open in the next 2 to 3 years. I wish I could be more helpful.
Would be great if someone who has tasted these with some age would chime in.
@Antonio Galloni ?


@Joe Weinberger i’d save. Had older from Leroy and they age well.

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett Riesling 2013

Apple, peach, and lemon over soft minerality. Good acidity and lightly sweet. My idea of Riesling. Richard likes it too. — a month ago
