Bloomer Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir Finger Lakes 2014

Member Review by Philip James:

Very light in color. Strong aromas of raspberry and some nice earthyness. Strong Strawberry flavors dominate in the mouth. Overall a very light wine (a touch tight, but still young). A nice long finish on some very gentle tannins. Very nice. Tasted at the winery.

Bloomer Creek Vineyard began 30 years ago as a daydream when Kim, then a nineteen year old Cornell Student, became enthralled with his part-time vineyard work on the west shore of Cayuga Lake. The outdoor work suited him, especially when the "fruit" of his labor became barrels of wine to share with friends. A trip to the mountains of Northern Italy, where wine plays an integral part of everyday life, confirmed for Kim his desire to make winegrowing and winemaking his life work. After studying winemaking at the State University at Fresno, California, Kim returned to the Finger Lakes and purchased a 50 acre farm where he slowly began to plant European grape varieties. In the following years, Kim managed vineyards for many of the Cayuga Lake wineries. In 1998, while managing the vineyards for Sheldrake Point Winery, Kim purchased the former Bond's fruit stand on the east shore of Seneca Lake, with the long range goal of opening a winery of his own. One year later, Kim and his wife (artist Debra Bermingham), along with chef Scott Signori from the Sheldrake Point Café, founded Bloomer Creek Vineyard and the Stonecat Café in the converted fruit stand. Five years later, Kim and Debra decided to concentrate their full attention on the production of fine wines and began construction of their new wine cellar and tasting room at the south end of the Seneca Lake property. Their new building, modeled after a Victorian era carriage house, showcases Kim's additional talents as a builder. With the opening of this new tasting room, Kim has finally turned his daydream into a reality. For the past 30 years, Kim has been a part of the long tradition of wine as a celebration of life. Now, at Bloomer Creek Vineyard, it is Kim's hope to share this joy - to share the sunshine that is a part of every harvest and the promise of every spring. Read less
