for this region?

Columbia County is within the Hudson River Valley in New York. While the Hudson River Valley is a historic wine-producing region, Columbia County is fairly new on the scene. Hudson-Chatham Winery is its first commercial vineyard, open since 2007. Since then, a handful of others are starting to crop up. The cool climate is well suited for North American/French hybrids such as Seyval Blanc and Baco Noir, as well as Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir. Wineries also offer fruit wines such as plum wine, liqueurs such as Cassis, and ciders.

  • L'Ecole 41 Pepper Bridge Vineyard Apogee 1998

    Snoothrank:

    For being nearly old enough to vote, this wine seems quite vibrant, with a lovely garnet color in the glass with just a hint of amber at the edges. The nose presents aromas of leather, cedar, oak and just a hint of musty peat reminiscent of a classic Bordeaux "funk." The taste brings forth some bright fruit flavors of blackberry and cherry col... Read More

  • L'Ecole 41 Apogee Pepper Bridge Vineyard Proprietary Red 2000

    Snoothrank:

    I let the wine decant for about 90 minutes before pouring. The wine is a nice ruby color in the glass, with just a bit of opacity. The nose presents aromas of leather, blackberry, plum and a hint of forest floor. The taste presents surprising flavors of cherry cola up front that transitions nicely to some notes of mocha, nutmeg and baking spi... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a nice garnet color in the glass with a bit of brown along the edges. The nose presents lovely aromas of leather, basalt, blackberry and prune, sort of the classic aroma of a mature Bordeaux. The taste is surprisingly mellow and pleasant, with a rush of cherry cola up front that transitions to some notes of white pepper and mint mi... Read More

    The wine is a beautiful ruby color in the glass, with a bit of opacity at the center. The nose presents aromas of blackberry, leather, cedar and cassis. The taste is just a pleasure, with some warm fruit notes up front, blackberry, plum and cherry cola, that transition nicely to some warm spice notes midpalate. The finish is generous, with me...

    The wind is a deep inky purple in the glass. The nose presents aromas of leather, blackberry green grass and smoke.

    The wine is a deep ruby color in the glass, with a nose of leather, black cherry and a hint of mint.
