Chateau Lafayette Reneau Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Coming from a cooler climate than Napa, but about the same as Bordeaux, this 2005 Cabernet from Seneca Lake is a good alternative to other New World wines. Cherries, pepper, and blackberries are rounded and smoothed out by the soft tannins and the mild finish of smoke and forest floor.

Chateau Lafayette Reneau:
We cordially invite you to savor 140 acres of vineyards, ponds, and woodlands. Our brick house and renovated barn/winery are from an earlier, simpler time. The panoramic view of Seneca Lake is absolutely spellbinding. Your visit here is more than another trip to a winery. It's a vacation from daily stress. This is the ideal place to nurture wine & dreams.

Upon opening this wine, the cork showed a bright strawberry color that I’ve never seen on a cork before, leading me to believe that this was going to be something special. In the glass, this Cabernet is a deep ruby red with strawberry tinged edges. Its aromas convey thoughts of black fruits, earthiness, and tannins. As you sip it, the acidity shows off the beautiful fruit that went into this wine. Merged with its very smooth and supple tannins, this wine is sure to be a crowd pleaser. This is one of the nicest Cabernets made in New York State, and I can’t wait to try their Proprietor’s Reserve when it is released.
