for this region?

The state of Massachusetts hosts more than a dozen wineries, scattered from its western end to the coastal areas south of Boston, as well as on Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket islands. Grape growing in the state is concentrated on coastal lands within the Southeastern New England AVA. In other parts of the state, fruit wines are more common and grape wines are often made from fruit imported from other parts of the U.S. The cold-climate conditions make French-American hybrid varieties like Seyval, Vidal, and Marechal Foch popular choices with growers. But some important producers have exclusively vinifera programs, focusing on varieties like Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Noir. Given the growing conditions and varieties, it is not surprising to find excellent, Traditional Method sparkling wines made in the state. – Description from Appellation America (view original content)

  • Klinker Brick Zinfandel Lodi 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Aged in 100% American oak Big, slightly musky oak filled aromas of loamy soil, toasted oak and sweet mulberry fruit that is a little jammy and caramel driven greet the nose. Vanilla and charry wood flavors are followed by a big, plump mouthful of jammy red fruits in the mouth. Big, and bold and spicy, this shows a bit of aggressive wood on the ... Read More

  • Liberty School Chardonnay 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Bright pale yellow colour. Pear, stone fruit, citrus/lime and apple combine with subtle oak and butter notes- lots of fruit well balanced with acidity. Medium-long length and slightly tangy finish. Read More

  • Frei Brothers Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A little candied on the nose, and ripe with peachy aromas layered over a base of softly floral framed citrus fruits and a hint of honeydew with a gentle suggestion of vanilla adding detail. Fairly large scaled in the mouth, and on the softer side of the spectrum, this does not lack for acid but does have a bit of a creamy feel in the mouth. The... Read More
