Bloomer Creek Vineyard

Finger Lakes Tanzen Dame Petillant Naturel Wine

It’s just one of those weekends...

Family in town for the 4th, double date before the storm.

Took me forever to track this down in the city. An elusive bottle that I had six months prior and couldn’t find it anywhere in the metropolis. Finally, just went straight to the producer and sent a message in an e-bottle to the friendly folks at Bloomer Creek Vineyard on Seneca Lake upstate.

Got me a cross-section of their new line of offerings, including three of these babies. Ready?

Funky as a sour beer, apricot, mango chutney and marmalade in the bouquet.

Pet bubbles for sure — love that. Makes it sing like a bluebird on a tall pine. Balanced acidity and sweetness, a perfect harmony that compliments each other. Refreshing AF. Mango strong note with an undercurrent of shrubs and thyme.

Lovely.

Bloomer Creek has been on our radar for our next FLX visit. Cool stuff coming from there, this looks like a great example.

Great rose for post beach cool down, its Rose week here in Brigantine. Picked this up at a very cool eclectic wine store-320 Market Cafe in Swarthmore, Pa. Go see Jack Cunicelli for amazing natural wines. — 4 months ago

Salmon Run Meritage Finger Lakes Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

First New York made table wine I've fallen in love with. Great balance between fruit and spice, which I guess is what Cab Franc x Merlot is all about. Mouthfeel is wonderful. Wish it was just two or three dollars cheaper (it is a table wine after all!) Guess I'll just have to buy it by the case for a discount! 🤩 — 2 years ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

9.5

Wifey is unwell, and subtly directed me to focus on the French stuff, so here we are...
For once, “I got my mind right, boss,” and let this breathe for 5 hrs, and lawdy, this is singing.
The nose offers up new oak, cinnamon and a hint of molasses. The palate presents ripe and balanced. Tannins are still bold, but frame the wine superbly. Finishes with black fruits and uncommon sweetness for a bdx example. After my week-day sabbatical from alcohol, this represents a great three-finger salute (control-alt-delete).

@Jason Brater, it was a directive disguised as a suggestion. You’re right, @Norman Gennaro. And if she reads this line of comments, and there are no more posts from me, call the coroner 😐

East Side Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Unbelievably smooth and velvety. The aroma is awesome and plenty of rich dark berry fruit, spice, mint, violets and more make this a good drinking wine with any meal. Best value in this Lodi wine. — 3 months ago

Dominio IV

Old Man Looking East Three Sleeps Vineyard Syrah 2009

Patience provides dividends with this 2009, very approachable. Best articulated by Dominio IV winemaker, Patrick Reuter, himself; “There is a place just over the snowy chain of volcanoes were the sea’s finger tips turn from to gentle mist. The dry scent of sage and tall grass hills of the east assure the sea’s mist it is good to go no further. Under this sky our family planted, tended, and loved this Syrah. Mossier, Oregon, 2009.” — a year ago
