Tasting Notes & Food Pairing
Beautiful aromatics of macerated red fruit combine with a hint of cardamom and vanilla on the nose. On the palate light oak, dense tannins and cocoa powder linger for quite some time, making this one of the Finger Lakes best reds available. Pair this wine with grilled Portobello mushrooms, sirloin steak, cocoa rubbed rib eye, garlic rosemary rack of lamb, or other roasted meats.

With the perfect balance of warm temperatures and occasional rainfall, the 2012 season turned into an exceptional vintage. Bud break occurred during mid-March, about five weeks earlier than usual, and set the tone for the rest of the season. Rivaling the impeccable 2010 vintage, 2012 also saw a large number of growing degree days, ideal for fully ripened grapes and bold wines. Due to the below average rainfall throughout the summer months, disease pressure remained low, allowing fruit to thrive with little intervention.
