Cabernet Merlot 2015
This dynamic duo combines the brawn of Cabernet Sauvignon and the suppleness of Merlot. Like an excellent marriage whereby one partner compliments the other and brings out their best traits. The beautiful ruby color and lightly smoky aroma give way to ripe red berry jam and plum flavors. The smooth finish hints of bittersweet cocoa that makes this wine sing.
Gold - New Orleans International Wine Competition 2018
February went on the record as the coldest in central NY and winter passed slowly into a cool spring with several frosty mornings though with little consequence to the vineyards. May through July were humid and featured torrential downpours. As has been the case the last few years, a warm and sunny September has made this wine grape harvest one of the best in recent memory providing above average temperatures and dry conditions which allowed the grapes to ripen and maintain excellent integrity.
