This winery still exists but they were sold and utilize a completely different model for grapes these days. But, back in the day, this was the best winery in Ohio. It is located in the southern part of the state along the Ohio River. Deep garnet in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has black cherries, slight herbal notes and a bit of spice. Medium to firm tannins. On the palate, black cherries, green bell pepper, and some spice. Good finish. Overall, a pleasant, quality Cabernet that at age 19 is drinking just fine. still, I would drink these sooner than later. Probably b
Silvery green/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose is interesting with orange peel, salinity and spice. Slightly oily texture. On the palate, peaches with spice. Long finish. Overall, a very nice, clean white wine that drinks well alone and will work with lighter foods. This would work with Lemon-Garlic pasta. Drink over the next couple of years.
The grapes for this wine come from the Wy'east vineyard. Wy'east is the Native American name for Mt. Hood. Light silvery gold in color, clear and bright. The nose has pears, slight citrus and almond. Light bodied. On the palate, pears and citrus. This is an easy drinking, lighter wine. The folks at Sineann suggest Sushi as a pairing and that sounds about right. Drink over the next year or two. A very nice value.
This wine is made in northeast, Ohio with purchased grapes from Red Mountain, WA. It is a very good Cab and a nice value. Purple in color with ruby hues, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has a bit of a smoky quality but also cassis, slight cedar and spice. Full bodied. Medium tannins. Good balance. On the palate, cassis, slight black cherry and char. Good finish. This is not a robust Cab but it does have enough fruit to drink on its own and would work well with a burger. Drink over the next five to seven years.
I believe these grapes came from California. Ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has cherries and some char. Light tannins. A nice backbone of acidity. On the palate, nice cherry fruit. This wine is nice on its own but really works better with food. A bit more fruit forward than say, an Italian Barbera, but certainly not a fruit bomb. Drink over the next three to five years.
This is a barrel selection of the best barrels of various vineyards and bottle exclusively in 375ml bottles. Deep ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has cherries, sour cherries, slight nutmeg and slight char. Medium bodied. Light to medium tannins. Good acidity. On the palate, sour cherries, some cherries with a lovely texture. Good finish. This could use another five to ten years of cellaring but is enjoyable now. Drink over the next fifteen years. Nice on its own, this would work well with grilled chicken breast.
Wow was this interesting. 11.6% abv. Very pale ruby in color with some orange hues, clear and bright. It looks like a rosé. A lovely nose with cherries, sea air, kirsch, and cloves. Medium bodied. Light tannins. Soft texture. On the palate, cherries, cranberries and a slight orange note. Moderate finish. It drinks well enough on its own but would be better with food. Salmon would be classic but maybe some Cajun Gumbo would be really good too. Drink over the next year or two (but it might go longer, I have no idea).
Bought on release at the winery. This bottle has held up quite well and while mature, did not seem like a 24 year old Oregon Pinot. Ruby in color with no browning and a bit of purple-ish at the core. The nose features cherries, sour cherries, some earthy funk and a bit of char. Medium to full bodied. Tannins are there but wispy. On the palate, this is drinking well. Cherries and some dried cherries with earthiness. Good balance. Nice finish. Drinking well but still, I wouldn't sit on these for too much longer. Good on its own but better with food. This would be perfect with gril
2021 Boundary Breaks Vineyard Chardonnay Unoaked, USA, New York, Finger Lakes, Seneca Lake, Wine Review
As the name says, this is an unoaked Chardonnay from the Finger Lakes region of New York. This is a cooler climate region and the resulting wine will be a great alternative for those oakaphobes or people just looking for something a bit different. Light golden in color, some green hues, clear and bright. The nose is clean with slight grapefruits, some minerality and a bit of "wet rocks". Medium bodied. On the palate, crisp and clean with a bit of grapefruit and minerality. Nice finish. This works better with food. This would be excellent with lobster (no buttery oak). Drink over th
This unique blend comes from Oregon. It is 38% Muller-Thurgau, 28% Gewurztraminer, 22% Riesling and 14% Pinot Gris. Best guess, this is a blend of wine available after bottling various grapes and vineyards. This was purchased at a restaurant. Green gold in color. Light bodied. The palate has a varietal complexity. Easy drinking. Nice value. A good choice with lighter foods and it went well with vegetarian pizza options.
