I have been to this winery before, and since I was in the area, thought about visiting again. It was a beautiful Autumn day and the fall foliage was stellar.
2018 Tocai Friulano: Very nice with mild acidity with hints of kiwi and peach. This is estate fruit and something that is done quite nicely.
2017 Chardonnay Special Reserve: This wine sees 10 months in Oak and it is noticeable. I am usually a non oaky Chardonnay fan, this was ok, but not my stule. Buttery and creamy, good for the masses I guess.
2018 Hunt County Rose: a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir Traminette (estate fruit) and Pinot Grigio. I really liked this Rose it has finesse and ample amounts of melon and peach. Moderate finish and mild acidity.
2017 Pinot Noir: 9 months in oak, black cherries however it seemed that the finish reminded me of burnt rubber… Not sure if it was due to the terrior or an off bottle. I do not think that Pinot Noir does well in the Hudson Valley all.
2018 Merlot: Very nice, supple and dark berries, Long Island Fruit as an FYI.
2018 Hunt County Red: A blend of Merlot (LI fruit) Cabernet Franc (estate fruit) and Syrah(???) 7 months in oak, nice and rich with berries and plum. I really like the Cab Franc in this.
Overall a nice experience, joined their club so I can grab some whites, and the Cabernet Franc, which happens to do well in this locale.
