Adirondack Winery 2016 Barrel Aged Chardonnay

December 3, 2017

Adirondack Winery 2016 Barrel Aged Chardonnay- This New World style chardonnay is a feast for all the senses. A beautiful label keeps the wine clothed and reveals a complex woody nose once poured. On the palate, citrus, butter and oak are the main themes with a light body at 12.5 % alcohol. This bottle is a good representation of what Finger Lakes growers (and Adirondack wine makers) can do with the chardonnay varietal. WF score 85.

Bergstrom 2011 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard

November 29, 2017

This is a wine that was purchased during a visit to Bergstrom several years ago. The presentation of this wine is exceptional with a beautiful bottle and powerful label. The nose is complex but the taste is a bit hollow. The overall score is still respectable despite the lower price/value.

Siduri 2010 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

October 22, 2013

Okay, this isn’t from the Finger Lakes.  But we tried an awesome Pinot Noir from California that we wanted to share with you.  This remarkable wine is from Siduri and is a dynamite value for under $30. This wine opens up with a nose full of dark fruits, prunes, coffee and semi sweet chocolate. Its hard to miss the bountiful spices and tastes of cherries when you finally take a sip. We matched this wine with a lamb chop and roasted vegetables featuring Romanesco. For more wine reviews go to http://wineforecaster.com
