Leonard Oakes Estate Winery

Pétillant Naturel Riesling

Best Pet Nat I've put in my mouth. Respects the grape and respects the process. Floral, apples and citrus. Throw a little earthy minerality and some yeasty funk, you got yourself one heck of a austere wine. Petillant Natural from NYS, it can be done. It is done. This funeral director thinks the label rocks. #niagara #nyswine #nydrinksny #riesling #sparkling #pétillantnaturel #petnat — 5 years ago

Marco Tulio North Fork of Long Island Red Blend 2012

Plum, cherry, blackberry, vanilla, earth, savory herbs and spice. And that's just on the nose. Well balanced and nice acidity. Bit of heat, but it ads complexity. #liwine #tasteny #drinklocal #mdw #nydrinksny #roanokevineyards — 6 years ago

Wild Ferment Niagara Escarpment Pinot Noir 2010

This was THE find of me and my sister's quick trip in the Niagara Escarpment in Western NY. Went over well with everyone at the company party. Controlled red cherry and hints of currant. Structured and delicious. Hints of Old World Pinot Noir! #nydrinksny #nyswine — 5 years ago

Block 1 North Creek Vineyard Seyval Blanc 2013

Finishing up from last night. Nice acid and length. Wanted a bit more fruit. Not well familiarized with Seyval. I'd give it another go around. #hudsonvalley #hudsonchatham #seyvalblanc #wine #nydrinksny #tasteny — 6 years ago

Billy Half-Stack IPA

I forgot how good this IPA was. Had it about 2 Christmas ago in a growler. My brother @notrog gave me a growler of this. It was so good then, it is so good now. And now that its in bombers, it might be my favorite bottled IPA from NYS. The hops shine through on this one nicely. If I'm not mistaken, I smell some Nelson Sauvin hops. Juicy, fresh fruit, its tropical fruit, citrus fruit some tree fruit too. Great malt profile that sweetens up the bitterness from the hops perfectly. Clean dry finish keeps you coming back for more. Balanced. Only down fall, the midpalate might be a bit short or watery. Go find this from @singlecutbeer and enjoy. #beer #craft #craftbeer #craftbeerny #nysbeer #nydrinksny #tasteny #singlecut #astoria #queens #billy #ipa — 6 years ago

Estate Grown Finger Lakes Cabernet Franc 2012

Sometimes, a few days is all a bottle needs to unwind. Leftover from New Year's Day. A delight. Graceful, expressive and focused. Showing tart cherries and fresh turned earth, a dusting coca powder and dried herbs with just the right amount of spice. The tannins have relaxed. While they were tight and kept hold of the freshmess, it is now showing as if just opened. If you have a few of these in your cellar, hold and hide. You will be rewarded in a few years from now. #flxwine #nyswine #nydrinksny #drinklocal #wine #cabernetfranc — 5 years ago
