Eleven Lakes Winery

Ravines Wine Cellars

Cerise Red Blend 2016

Nose has cranberry sauce, red Twizzler® candy, white pepper, ripe plum, mashed red raspberry and lightly toasted oak.

Palate has ripe cherry, ripe red raspberry, fresh cranberry, light ripe plum with mild (drying) tannins and a medium finish.

Cork pulled for a 4H slow oxidation, then 1H decant. This wine is still a teenager, the 2016 should easily hold thru 2024.

Blend of Pinot Noir & Blaufränkisch.

Paired to lemon chicken in a dill cream sauce; cast iron pan from stove top to oven, becoming our most versatile piece of cookware!

Gewürztraminer 2018

An explosion of honey wax aroma. It's like eating a comb.

Peony, caramel, dark chocolate.

What a fabulous NY wine. Definitely not a traditional sweet Gewürz.

Finger Lake Chardonnay 2017

Nose has sliced yellow apple, sliced green apple, green melon, faint green table grapes and a light oak touch.

Palate has ripe pineapple, lychee, light caramel, light honey and medium (somewhat neutral) oak/vanilla; medium finish.

A very solid effort for the new, second label from Ravines Wine. I'll gladly pull some of these into our future wine club ships, at under $15 this is solid buy.

Opened one day prior to contribute to our braising liquid for chicken thighs.

Bloomer Creek Vineyard

Dry Finger Lakes Riesling 2017

Balanced acid. Dry, stony, minerality. Round.
Concentrated/sappy center with light edges - like a jammy soft boiled egg. Savory and a little chewy. Loved it!

Date drank: August 2018
Year: 2014
Producer: Bloomer Creek
Grape(s): 50% Reisling, 50% cayuga white
Region: Cayuga Lake. Finger lakes. NY
Distributor/Importer: na
Natty: yes. Low input organic vineyards. No sulfer added
Tasting Notes: First, the nose was amazing, very aromatic with hints of orange peel, honey, lemon maybe ? Its a late harvest but fermented to dryness and amazingly balanced with fruit and sweetness while also being dry and clean. Doesnt cloy and goes well with fish or light summer vegetables. I still dream about this wine

Finger Lakes Dry Gewürztraminer 2017

Nose has amazing Gardenia aromas, sweet honey, freshly milled white pepper and cold wax.

Palate has over-ripe cantaloupe, honey drizzle on green melon, (light) lemon/orange zest and juiced Clementine (faint). Light on the acidity and a bit long on the finish. Decanted 60m. (92-93 points, very nice)

Spectacular pairing to fried eggs (backyard egg factory paying its dues even in the cold of winter) over toasted couscous, softened garlic & red onion, fresh green onion and the star of the dish za'atar (I could eat this on cereal!).
