    July 10, 2015 - Good color. The aromatic nose shows aromas of red berries, herbs and a hint of pepper. Refined for the varietal. This is medium bodied on the palate with good concentration and decent class. The medium plus length finish features civilised tannins.

    February 4, 2015 - Aromas of blackberry, raspberry & black cherry along with brick dust and herbs/spice. The palate matches stride for stride- the fruit is fresh, the rest adds complexity and there's also a bit of a grilled beef note. Medium acidity/tannins. Drinking well now but should last at least 5 more years. Great QPR and well-made.

    November 5, 2014 - I love this wine.. already bricking a bit, but the flavor was amazing. Lithe but structured wine, with gorgeous fruit, and only 11.2% alcohol. My guess is this wine was not stored at 57 and is very low in Sulphur. So careful if you plan on having it around for a few years.

    That being said.. This is a great NY wine and really is one among many that are showing just how pure and true reds from the Finger Lakes can be..

    May 10, 2014 - Bought from the winery last year, and served to me blind a week ago. My guesses were all over the map! It felt at once like a cooler climate northern italian, a western french oddity, and an aged rioja. I'll leave that alone as a testament to the wonderful and interesting stuff they're doing up at Bloomer Creek. Very good stuff!
