Agricolae

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.

I’ve never had finger lake wines . I’d like to visit the region

Ravines Wine Cellars

Skin Fermented Finger Lakes Chardonnay 2018

Nose has (light) cider vinegar, over-ripe yellow apples, apple mash, wet sawdust, over-ripe papaya (?) and sun scorched earth.

Palate has sweet yellow apple, oxidized apple slice, dried pineapple with a long finish and what I'm perceiving as some tannins. A very weighty wine, with grip on the palate and our minds tonight. Quite interesting for wine nerds!

Cork pulled for slow oxidation, 11H.

Paired to a French dish this evening, chicken, apples and cremé à la normande (cream, onion, mushroom & calvados), wow smiles all around tonight.

Hermann J. Wiemer

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!).

Argetsinger Vineyard Dry Riesling 2016

Old world styled excellence from the finger lakes. Bone dry with whiffs of petrol. Hard not to consider Rheingau or Rheinhessen when nosing this one ! — 19 days ago

Myriad Cellars

Three Twins Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Solid showing from Myriad. Blackberry, cedar, dark fruits on the palate with a distinct eucalyptus note on the finish. This wine has mellowed out a bit over the past few years and the tannins are getting softer. It is not the mouth painting fruit forward wine it was in its youth. Age has been kind to this wine — 11 days ago

Year: 2014
Producer: Bloomer Creek
Grape(s): 50% Reisling, 50% cayuga white

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

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!

I have not heard of this winery before. Do they have tasting room?

Philip - thanks for noticing. this is actually my own winery. My wife and I purchased an existing tired winery called Pompous Ass (mostly sweet wines) and this is our new dry vinifera focused brand. This was just bottled and will go on the shelf beginning of March once it gets past bottle shock (along with several other varietals). Would love to have you stop in and try them and meet you in person. We are pretty excited about the way these have come together.

Oh cool! I stay on the East side of Seneca each summer so only occasionally head over to Wiemer or Fox Run and a few others. Next summer I will be sure to visit. I had always avoided Pompous Ass tbh.
