Bottle from dinner this evening in downtown Hammondsport, a quiet town. The restaurant had a deep list of early 2000's bottles from local wineries, all great values!
Color was deep gold, clearly showing its age.
Nose had oxidized white flowers, and ripe oxidized peach, some wet slate/petrol-light notes.
Palate was candied peach/pineapple, honey.
A great experience, $55 on the list. — 5 days ago
I feel that this is probably the best Pinot Noir producer out of the finger lakes although the competition is finally a good one. The nose has a wonderful aroma of currant a plum with undertones of spice including nutmeg and mulling spices. The palate is gorgeously light and elegant but still somewhat juicy at the same time. Flavors of plum, sour cherry and baking spice along with wonderfully balance acidity. The finish is soft and elegant with juicy fruit notes of lingering acidity. Wow... a great pairing for roasted pork. — 3 days ago
Oh how I miss thee, Finger Lakes wine. Jammy and bold with nice tannins on the finish. Quality wine from one of the top wineries in the region. — 5 days ago
Beautiful single Vineyard FLX Riesling from an up and coming producer. Loaded with tropical fruit aromas and flavors. Hint of coconut meat and mango. Briny acidity that is extremely balanced. Well crafted — 4 days ago
