This is light golden wine with a slight green hue. This semi-dry Chardonnay has no oak whatsoever and is full of apple, honeydew and pear character. It is lush and lingering on the palate. As soon as I tasted this I knew it was one of my favorites of the 2019 white wines. At this price, there's really no reason not to purchase five cases at a time.
This wine has medium sized bubbles and a light golden straw color. The nose is full, intense, fresh and vivid with aromas of lemon, tangerine, orange, pineapple and white lily flowers. The palate has medium texture, youth and a fruit driven richness balanced with a touch of yeast and bread dough. This Blanc de Noir is our first since the 2008 vintage and it is a beautiful expression of just how well suited the Finger Lakes region is for sparkling wine production.
A blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot all grown on the McGregor Vineyard estate.
Aromatically, this wine is reminiscent of blackberry, ripe cherries and plums, and has an earthy side filled with leather, smokiness, and graphite. It is medium bodied on the palate and its flavors tilt toward red fruit (cherry and raspberry), smoke, tobacco and a touch of anise. Grippy, fine tannins linger on the tongue with a very subtle background oaky character.
This wine is light golden in color and is incredibly complex and boastful. Aromas abound- lychee fruit, grapefruit, orange, wet stone, fresh ginger, lemongrass, cinnamon, and a faint floral/rose petal are all enticingly present. The palate is rich and expanding with flavors of tangerine, pear, minerals, a hint of allspice. It lingers with flavors of citrus and pepper.
A golden straw colored wine with outstanding acid/sugar balance. Don't be frightened by the higher residual sugar! As with the other 2019 Rieslings, this one has great complexity- aromas and flavors remind me of fresh apricots, orange, spice and tropical citrus notes. This wine should really develop beautifully over the next decade.
A bold wine in a deep purple-red color. Fruit driven aromatics and flavors of blackberry, plum, elderberry, spice and gripping tannins. Savor this wine’s big finish.
This bone-dry wine is produced this using the traditional methode champenoise, and aged for just a year on the lees. Enjoy this delicate white wine's perfumed character - reminiscent of fresh orange blossoms and crushed mint.
Rkatsiteli is one of the oldest winemaking grapes known in the world and it is only grown by a few vineyards in the United States. This 2019 vintage is on the dry side of semi-dry and has aromas and flavors of grapefruit, passionfruit, lemon, brine/sea foam, serrano pepper, cinnamon, and green apple. Sip this light, crisp and delicate wine on its own or pair with shellfish, shaved fennel salad or fennel au gratin.

This pale straw colored wine bursts with mandarin, nectarine and spicy aromas. These aromas combine with candied orange rind, peach and apricot on the palate. It's a firm, racy, acid-driven wine balanced with a touch of residual sugar and has a nice, long finish. Delicious!
This thick and opaque wine has a deep ruby color and very complex aromas and flavors; it’s a smooth wine with attitude. The aromas are reminiscent of spice, bourbon barrels, oak, and black and blue fruits (super ripe plums and blueberries) along with an underlying woodsy, mossy, and fresh soil character. It’s a big, broad, and spacious wine with a peppery character along with flavors of sweet oak, toasted coconut, spice, black currant and a touch of serrano pepper, tobacco and smoke. The finish is smooth and lingering.
This straw colored wine is very aromatic and complex. Aromas and flavors of peach, lime, lemon, white flowers and passion fruit abound. It's light and zippy on the palate with a beautiful, lingering finish.
