Grapes for the superb Forge Cellars Les Alliés Dry Riesling 2015 derive from the east side of Seneca Lake in New York’s Finger Lakes AVA. The wine ferments by native yeast, 80 percent in neutral barriques, 20 percent in stainless steel tanks. The color is pale straw-gold; scintillating elements of lemon drop, graphite, quince and celery leaf are bolstered by notes of petrol, lychee and limestone; there’s just a hint of lightly honeyed and baked peach. This is a riesling for which the term “bone-dry” was invented; it’s animated by brisk, bright acidity and a vibrant limestone-flint quality that keeps the wine lithe and resonant through the long, slightly dusty, loamy finish. The overall impression is of a potent riesling notable for clarity, crispness and depth. 13 percent alcohol. Now through 2022 to ’25. Forge Cellars is a partnership among winemakers Louis Barroul and Justin Boyette and general manager Rick …

Seneca Wine Trail sign helps travelers.

New York State’s Finger Lake region offers so much to summertime visitors. Among the many activities of hiking, swimming, fishing, boating and camping, the region offers numerous wineries to visit. Travelers will find small, boutique wineries as well as much larger wineries. Some of these wineries offer delightful views of Seneca Lake, Cayuga Lake and Keuka Lake. The lakes provide enough warmth to keep the grapevines safe during the harsh winters that the area can experience.

Lake views between the grapevines

Two of the most well-known wine trails are the Seneca Lake Wine Trail with 35 participating wineries and the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail with 16 wineries. A third wine trail is the Keuka Lake Wine Trail with 8 wineries. A few wineries are also close to Canandaigua Lake which also has the Canandaigua Wine Trail. As one drives along the Finger Lakes, also …

50 Great Wines of 2017

The prices of these 50 Great Wines of 2017 range from an unprecedented $15 to a whopping $250. Not that I expect My Readers to hasten out and snatch up a bottle of wine that costs $250, but when an extraordinary wine crosses my horizon and I rate it “Exceptional,” well, it goes on this list no matter the price. That’s one of the criteria for this annual roster: Every wine I rated Exceptional in 2017 is included automatically, followed by wines I rated Excellent and that I go back through the reviews and parse very carefully. Now I’m sure My Readers understand that by “50 Great Wines” I’m not saying that these are the 50 greatest wines in the world, just that they’re great wines — as I interpret greatness — that I tasted during the year in question. What makes a wine great? Purity, intensity, integrity, authenticity, as …

Wine of the Day, No. 251


This post is by Fredric Koeppel from Bigger Than Your Head

The Finger Lakes AVA is New York state’s largest wine region, comprising about 11,000 acres of vines. The area south of Lake Ontario was formed about two million years ago when glaciers scoured the geography and created long narrow bodies of water from former creeks. The Finger Lakes consist of 11 of these features, splayed out pointing roughly north to south like fingers on hands. These are among the deepest 13PinotNoirlakes in America; Cayuga is 435 feet deep, while Seneca reaches down to 618 feet. Cayuga and Seneca hold their own sub-appellations within the larger Finger Lakes AVA. The warmth stored in the lakes is released in winter and helps to moderate the climate along the shores, where most of the vineyards are planted.

Our Wine of the Day, No. 251, is the Thirsty Owl Wine Company Pinot Noir 2015, which carries a Finger Lakes designation; the winery sits on …

Dr. Konstantin Frank emigrated to the United States in 1951. Born in Odessa in 1899, Frank was an expert in growing vitis vinifera grapes — traditional European wine grapes — in temperatures cold enough to be thought unsuitable. He worked as a dishwasher in New York until he could afford to move his family upstate to Cornell University’s Geneva Experiment Station in 1953. While three centuries of DF 2015 Gewurztraminer growing only native American or hybrid grapes in the Finger Lakes region seemed to mitigate against Frank’s ideas and experience, the release of his first wine, a Trockenbeerenauslese Johannisberg Riesling 1962 made from botrytized grapes, pretty much settled the argument and transformed vineyard practices and winemaking in the Finger Lakes. Konstantin Frank died in 1985, by which time his winery had passed through the hands of his son Willy. In 1993, Willy’s son Fred Frank took over as president, with his sister Barbara …

50 Great Wines of 2016


This post is by Fredric Koeppel from Bigger Than Your Head


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




So, here it is, My Readers, the annual “50 Great Wines” roster, presently for the past year, that is, 2016. Not the “Greatest” of all wines or the “Best” of all wines, but a selection of 50 products that struck me as embodying everything we want in a wine: freshness, balance, appeal; depth, personality and character; an adherence to the nature of the grapes and, where possible, the virtues of the vineyard and climate. These are wines that leave aside the ego of the winemaker and producer for an expression of — not to sound too idealistic — an ideal of what a wine should be. I won’t belabor the process by which I arrived at this list of 50 wines, except to say that every wine I rated “Exceptional” during 2016 is automatically included. Did I leave out wines that I truly admired? Indeed, I did, because this list …

red-newt
At three years old, the Red Newt Cellars Tango Oaks Vineyard Riesling 2013, from New York’s Finger Lakes region, is drinking beautifully. The grapes were harvested on October 24 that year, and about 10 percent were affected by botrytis, the mold that shrivels grapes, concentrates and dries them and renders them into tiny, intense sugar bombs. That factor lends this 100 percent riesling wine, made all in stainless steel, not so much a hint of sweetness — it barely qualifies as “off-dry” — but lovely intensity and ripeness. The color is very pale straw-gold; the wine displays crystalline clarity and character, offering aromas of lemon, green apple, lime peel and lychee highlighted by notes of quince and ginger. The feeling of utter freshness continues on the palate, where hints of bursting peaches and apricots are slightly burnished and darkened by a tantalizing tide of loam, chalk and limestone, an …

Trio of Ice Wines from the Finger Lakes: Thirsty Owl, Standing Stone and Lakewood Vineyards


This post is by Dezel Quillen from My Vine Spot


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




Hello Friends,

Today’s blog post features a trio of scrumptious dessert wines from the Finger Lakes wine region in upstate New York. I can tell you from experience that well-made dessert wines are an excellent addition to the dinner table. They can be featured on their own, as the dessert itself, or paired with an agreeable dessert of your choice.

Ice wines are usually made from grapes that are naturally high in acidity (e.g., Riesling). This is in order to balance the higher residual sugar levels found in these delightful liquid treats. Without good balancing acidity, a dessert wine can come across as sickly sweet and too cloying; being a more suitable topping for pancakes or waffles than poured into cordial glasses and enjoyed post dinner with family and friends.

A scrumptious dessert wine can be the perfect cap to an evening’s end.

Of the three wines featured, …

Glenora Wine Cellars' Inn, Finger Lakes

Glenora Wine Cellars’ Inn, Finger Lakes

Yesterday after a busy day visiting four wineries in the Finger Lakes region of New York, we had reservations for dinner at Glenora Wine Cellars’ Veraisons Restaurant. The experience was delightful with indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the beautiful and enticing Seneca Lake.

Veraisons Restaurant is situated in the same complex where Glenora’s inn is located. The executive chef is Orlando Rodriguez.

The summer dinner menu included salads and soups for starters, boards of cheese samplers and a charcuterie board, small plates for those with smaller appetites and dinner entrees. The menu is labeled with foods marked as vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free.

As we had been tasting wines all day, we decided not to order a glass of wine although it would have been very nice to have enjoyed a Glenora wine with our dinner.

071315aThis year’s Wine Bloggers Conference returns to the east on August 13th – 16th in Corning, New York. The conference attracts not only wine bloggers, but also wine writers and authors. Kathy and I have attended some of the previous conferences. The last trip to the east was in 2011 during a heat wave in Virginia. The state did a wonderful job as conference hosts, except for the weather. The conference took place in Charlottesville. One of the evening activities was a dinner at Monticello. This wonderful, historic venue should have been a highlight of the conference, but with temperatures in the low 100s in the shade, it seemed to take the starch out of the attendees. Corning, New York in August should not have those extreme temperatures. We can expect temperatures in the 70’s near 80.

We also attended the following year where the conference moved back to the …

A few days ago, I received an email containing a unique (for me, anyway) request:

“On your page you have a special photograph of Sammy Argetsinger. Can you email me a high resolution copy of that picture? I would like to frame it and I know a local wine owner in Hector wants one to hang in his winery near Dave Bagley.”

The photograph to which this person was referring is below; it happens to be one of my personal favorites, because of the subject – I was lucky enough to capture Finger Lakes grape grower Sam Argetsinger at a moment that seemed to encapsulate his explosively buoyant and totally unique personality (it helped that the backdrop was his gorgeous vinous “backyard,” too).

From a follow up note from the same person requesting the photo, I was informed that Sam Argetsinger had recently passed away.

It’s sad news for Finger Lakes wine country, and, given how impressive FLX wines have been recently, a loss to be mourned for the greater U.S. and global wine communities, as well.

For more on Argetsinger, see my Finger Lakes write-up from back in may of 2010; he was one of the most authentically unique wine personalities that I’d ever encountered, and trust me when I tell you that when it comes to personalities in the wine world, that is really saying something.

Quick Sip: Knapp Winery 2012 Vidal Blanc Ice Wine


This post is by Dezel Quillen from My Vine Spot


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




Hello Friends,

Today’s Quick Sip is the Knapp Winery Estate Grown Cayuga Lake 2012 Vidal Blanc Ice Wine from Finger Lakes, New York. This dessert wine is sumptuous, satisfying, and pleasing at entry-level pricing. The fruit for this sweet treat was picked late in the season while frozen on the vine and pressed before thawing, resulting in tiny amounts of sweet, concentrated juice. Because these wines can only be produced naturally in certain regions, the risk involved (e.g., berries remain on the vine much later than regular harvested grapes), labor intensiveness, and low yields, true ice wines generally fetch a pretty penny for a half bottle (375ml). Vidal Blanc is a white hybrid grape variety that has good natural acidity which makes it a good candidate for balancing the higher residual sugars found in dessert wines. At this price point, I recommend grabbing a bottle or three to enjoy with friends after dinner, either with dessert (e.g., almond pound cake, fruit tart) or as the dessert itself. For further information and where you can find this selection, please see my tasting notes below.

Knapp Winery and Vineyard 2012 Vidal Blanc Ice Wine

Review: Knapp Winery 2012 Vidal Blanc Ice Wine (SRP $25 / 375ml): Lip-smacking, fragrant, and delicious, this wine’s slightly rich, viscous texture wraps around a sweet and succulent core of apricot preserve, mandarin oranges, spiced citrus marmalade, and honey. The flavors and sugars are balanced by a refreshing tang of acidity. It is nice by itself and equally as enjoyable with a slice of almond pound cake – trust me, I know! As far as traditional ice wine pricing goes, this sweet treat represents a good value that’s well worth seeking out. Approximately 24 cases of this wine were produced. Region: Finger Lakes, NY. (Other info: ABV 12%, 100% Vidal Blanc, grapes grown in 2011 through 2012 – harvested January 3rd, 2012, at 11° and pressed while frozen, cork enclosure.) 89 Points. Click here to find this wine.

Serve in a cordial glass and enjoy!

Discover Dry Rosé Wines Promotion in the Finger Lakes

A large number of Finger Lakes wineries are promoting dry rosé wines with a “Discover Rosé Wines” campaign until the end of April. A website was developed in support of Discover Dry Rosé. A map showing the location of participating wineries is available. The majority of wineries are located along Seneca Lake. However wineries are located along Cayuga Lake and Keuka Lake. Skaneateles has Anyela’s Vineyards and just south of Canandaigua is Inspire Moore Vineyards.

For a long time, rosé wines have not been considered quality wines by some consumers. Perhaps this is because, in the past, some rosés produced were sweet. Sometimes sugar is used to cover flaws in grapes not fully ripe when harvested.

However today attitudes and wines have changed for the better. Dry rosé wines can be delightful to pair with cheeses and to enjoy on a warm summer day.

Be sure to check out the dry rosé wines produced in New York’s Finger Lakes region.

If you have a photo or comment to make about Finger Lakes’ dry rosés sign up for the promotions Facebook page at com/discoverdryrose. If you are using Twitter use the hashtag #flxrose

Even better Fox Run Vineyards is providing a free tasting of rosés during the promotion for consumers who can prove they have “liked” the Facebook page.

Wineries participating in “Discover Rosé Wines” include:

  • Inspire Moore Vineyards
  • Dr. Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars
  • Ravines Wine Cellars (Keuka Lake)

A Trio of Wines from the Finger Lakes: Goose Watch Winery, Glenora Cellars, and Thirsty Owl


This post is by Dezel Quillen from My Vine Spot


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




Hello Friends,

Today’s Recent Sips features two sparklers and an Ice Wine from the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York. I had an opportunity to taste these wines during a recent event put on by the Finger Lakes Wine Alliance. In addition to making some really nice Rieslings, which the region is well-known for, the Finger Lakes cool-climate produces a number of bright, well-balanced white and red wines that are well suited to a wide variety of occasions and foods. Sparkling wines are one style of wine that can match just about any situation and any dish you throw at them. Their high acidity and palate-cleaning bubbles make then one of the most versatile and food-friendly wines you’ll find.

Two flutes of Brut Rosé coming right up!
And at these price points, there is no need  to reserve the bubbly for ‘special occasions.’ The special occasion is when you pop the cork– and that can be any day of the week. Just whip out the [Champagne] flutes, grab some appetizers, invite friends over, pour, and enjoy! For a sweet-ending to your sparkling evening and dinner, the lip-smacking Ice Wine from Thirsty Owl Wine Company makes for a pleasant sipper in place of dessert. For further information and where you can find these wines see my tasting note below. If you’re outside the region, your best chance of finding any one of these wines is via the producer’s website (and I have left links).   
Goose Watch Winery Pinot Noir Brut Rosé
Review: Goose Watch Winery NV Pinot Noir Brut Rosé (SRP $18): Deep blush in color, this sparkling wine offers a delightful core of bright red fruit with strawberry and cranberry aromas and flavors leading the way. The wine’s mouth-watering acidity and palate-cleansing bubbles make it a good match for a wide variety of foods – including everything from ham and turkey to picnic fare. Overall, this enjoyable wine is crisp and refreshing and at a price point that won’t break the piggy bank. Region: Finger Lakes, NY. (Other info: ABV 12%.) Click here to find this wine. 
Glenora Wine Cellars 2003 Brut 
Review: Glenora Wine Cellars 2003 Brut (SRP $24.99): This sparkling wine, made using the traditional method as they do in Champagne, is composed of 68% Pinot Noir, 19% Pinot Blanc and 13% Chardonnay. Deep straw in color with a frothy mousse and a fine persistent bead, the wine shows aromas and flavors of mature tree fruit, white stone fruit, and almond butter with muted (sweet) brioche notes. Medium-bodied with lively acidity and a slightly creamy middle, this is a nice and affordable sparkling wine to have around the house for any day you feel like enjoying a nice glass of bubbly. Approximately 992 cases of this wine were produced. Region: Finger Lakes, NY. (Other info: ABV 12.5%) Click here to find this wine.  
Thirsty Owl Wine Company 2012 Ice Wine 
Review: Thirsty Owl Wine Company 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Ice Wine (SRP $39.95 / 375ml): Light brick in color with orange-tawny hues, this wine serves up inviting aromas of fresh strawberry preserve, framboise, rhubarb, and crushed cherries. The aromas extend to the palate with a slightly rich texture while remaining light on its feet with just enough acidity to balance the fruit and sugars. Serve chilled in cordial glasses and enjoy this lip-smacking treat for dessert after a scrumptious and satisfying meal. It’s not every day you see an Ice Wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon and this selection is extremely likable and pleasant. (Other info: ABV 13.6%, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.) Click here to find this wine. Note: The ’13 is currently available.

Cabins at Buttonwood Grove Winery

Cabins at Buttonwood Grove Winery

Anyone looking for an opportunity to purchase a winery may want to consider Buttonwood Grove Winery in New York State. The winery is located on an elevation above Cayuga Lake.

Owning and operating a successful winery takes a good sum of money, a lot hard work, and knowledge. If you have those assets than you may want to consider Buttonwood Grove. The asking price is $1.25 million.

A few years ago while visiting wineries in the Finger Lakes region of New York, we stopped by Buttonwood Grove Winery in Romulus, NY.  Today I remember the spacious tasting room and recall the items were displayed on tables/carts with large wheels, making them easy to move when scheduling events in the room. We had a delightful time including talking with one of the owners.

In addition to the winery buildings, the sale includes 65 acres of land and four cabins. The acreage includes 12½ acres of vineyards.

Details about the sale are available online.
