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 No. 41 Merlot Walla Walla Valley Seven Hills Vineyard 1997


    The wine itself still has some nice ruby color, with just the faintest hint of opacity. The nose is very reminiscent of Bordeaux, with some funk initially followed by some lovely notes of leather, cedar and hint of lavender and plum (keep in mind I only opened this about an hour ago, so it's early in the process of opening up!). The taste is q... Read More

  • Russell Creek Merlot Columbia Valley 2003


    Dark garnet hue, with rich aromas of dark tree fruits and tea; generous flavor notes of black raspberries, boysenberries and plums with fruitcake spice, and fine, integrated tannins over a refined and moderately long finish. Very Nice, but pricey. Read More

  • L'Ecole No. 41 Syrah Seven Hills Vineyard 2009


    The color is a bright garnet in the glass, with a bit of opacity. The nose is a blast of ripe black fruit, blackberries, cherries, layered over leather and oak, along with a sweet twang that is very reminiscent of a nice Bordeaux. The taste is not nearly as fruity as the nose would suggest, as you start with some mild berry and plum flavors th... Read More
