    Winemaker Notes

    The nose opens with a touch of cedar, tart cherry, and a fresh herbal character. Mocha and vanilla spice mingle on the palate with a finish of soft tannins.

    A wine for many seasons, enjoy Gamay Noir slightly chilled in the summer with a cheese and charcuterie plate for a light dinner, then alongside the evening campfire with smores. You'll find the 2016 vintage equally delightful on your Thanksgiving table, as it's food friendly nature mixes well with everything from stuffing, mashed potatoes and turkey through to apple and cheddar pie for dessert.

    As the most historic wine-producing region in New York state, winemaking in the Finger Lakes area dates back to the 1820s and today as a region, accounts for 90% of the state’s total wine production.

    Its narrow and deep lakes created by the movement of Ice Age glaciers create an environment similar to the classic Riesling-loving regions of Europe, namely Germany and Austria. The Finger Lakes retain summer heat that incidentally warms up cold winter air, making it fall down from the lakes’ steep slopes. When spring comes, the lakes, already cooled by cold winter weather, stave off vine budding until the danger of frost has subsided. The main lakes of the zone, that is those big enough to moderate the climate in this way, are the focal points of prime vineyard areas. They include Canandaigua, Keuka, Seneca, and Cayuga.

    While Riesling has fueled most of the region’s success, today Pinot noir and Cabernet Franc enjoy some attention.

    Delightfully playful, but also capable of impressive gravitas, Gamay is responsible for juicy, berry-packed wines predominantly from Beaujolais. In Beaujolais, Gamay generally has three classes: Beaujolais Nouveau, a decidedly young, fruit-driven wine, Beaujolais Villages and Cru Beaujolais. The Villages and Crus are highly ranked grape growing communes whose wines are capable of improving with age whereas Nouveau, released two months after harvest, is intended for immediate consumption. Somm Secret—The ten different Crus have their own distinct personalities—Fleurie is delicate and floral, Côte de Brouilly is concentrated and elegant and Morgon is structured and age-worthy.
