Pinot Noir is a finicky grape. It requires the proper climate, the right soil, the perfect weather and a masterful winemaker. It is the grape of Burgundy of which some of the most expensive bottles of wine are made. But Pinot Noir can find its place in the climate of the Finger Lakes and in this video, Leah and David try a wonderfully crafted version from Ravines Wine Cellars. Constructed in the Burgundian method it reflects both the terroir of the Finger Lakes as well as the old world style of France.

There is much debate in the Finger Lakes region about who makes the best Riesling. Is it grown in the Finger Lakes or in Germany? In this video Leah and David compare the 2015 dry riesling from Dr. Loosen of Germany to the 2015 dry riesling from Dr. Konstantin Frank of the Finger Lakes. Who will come out on top?

From the moment you look at the creative and well-designed label, to tasting this pale colored wine, you will be happy with your decision. It is in the middle of being sweet and dry, something that should appease most people. The palate is bright with grapefruit, honeysuckle, lemon and mineral components, all that you would want in this varietal. The price is right in the middle, not bargain and not stuffy. Try this bottle for a weeknight meal at home or a low key weekend meal as you will not be disappointed.
