Quotes taken from our tasting notes upon the wine's release, the following still holds true today for these twelve year old wines.
2002 Estate Selection Chardonnay $19
"Barrel fermented and aged in French oak for over a year, this wine is reminiscent of toasted hazelnuts, lemon and apples. Enjoy with shellfish, chicken and cheeses."
2002 Cabernet Sauvignon $30 SOLD OUT
"Our second vintage, this wine exhibits notes of black currant, herbs, and cedar. Savor with hearty roasts and rich cheeses."
2002 Pinot Noir $20
"This lovely wine displays notes of cherry, spice, and herbs. Superb when served with game and grilled seafood."
The 2002 growing season was long and seasonably warm, which was excellent for fruit of the Finger Lakes Region, allowing the grapes to ripen until the very last minute before harvest. For a nostalgic look back on the 2002 Harvest, here is an article written by Peggy Haine for Life In The Finger Lakes.
Club members will get the chance to taste and purchase the new 2013 vintages before we release them to the public. We'll be introducing three new Rieslings, two Pinot Gris', a Chardonnay and the return of our Vidal Blanc.

Pulled from deep within our wine cellar library, we will dust off and uncork these gems and discuss their differences and similarities due to weather, vineyard location and soils, vinification practices and many other topics. This will be a fun little "time capsule" trip back though several years of pride and joy from our spectacular vineyard site here on Seneca Lake. Maybe you will remember some of them with fondness and nostalgia as we sip and swirl.
Light hors d'oeuvres will be provided for your enjoyment and some selections will be available for purchase - ONE DAY ONLY.
Limited to 24 to keep the event intimate, advance tickets are $25 club members/$35 non
