Red Hills Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Lake County.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing black fruits with wood, vanilla, earth, spices, leather, tobacco, vegetables, herbs, dark coffee and black pepper.

Easy drinking and good right out of the bottle. Feels like a Napa Cabernet.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Brick House

Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir 2019

restaurant bottle so it was pnp unfortunately as i think this needed quite a bit of air and/or more time in the cellar. tightly wound, tart fruit, high-ish acid. i think a lot of these dry farmed bio pinots from this region just need some years to unwind and develop secondary flavors. i've got several pinots from Brick House cellaring that i'm not going sniff under 5 years. — a month ago

Dry Classique Seneca Lake Riesling 2018

Bright and deep gold. Abundant and inviting nose of honeyed yellow apple and honeysuckle. Crisp medium palate yields those same elements with a hint of herb and peach pit. Firm, medium plus acidity and a juicy lingering finish. Among the best the Finger Lakes has to offer! Bone dry yet still aromatic and flavorful. Perfect match for seafood (crab cakes here) or poultry. Drink now through 2028. — 16 days ago

Pillitteri Estates Winery

Appassimento Riserva Famiglia Niagara-on-the-Lake Cabernet Franc 2015

Holy crap the nose on this. Like a bouquet of flowers. Has jammy notes, like a fresh strawberry or raspberry jam. On first sip, I get vanilla, chocolate, cranberries, strawberries, pepper, honey, oak. It's complex as heck but works so well. Very unique. — 21 days ago
