Eleven Lakes Winery Canoe Landing Crooked Lake Red NV

Member Review by CageyT:

I would love to love a wine with such a nice photo on the label, called "Canoe Landing." I hate to do it, but I have to smack this one down. First, the labeling, though aesthetically pleasing, is about as useful as the wrapper on a Hershey bar, maybe less so. The winery is apparently headquartered in Lodi, maybe on Cayuga, maybe on Seneca Lakes. The info about this wine on the label opines about "vineyard-covered hillsides" on Keuka Lake, though I don't know of any vines owned by Eleven Lakes there, or anywhere else for that matter. No sense of real place, no mention of a varietal, no vintage. This is "no clue" wine, though perhaps a collector's item if you want your encyclopedia about the Finger Lakes in the shape of bottles. As to the merits, or lack thereof, of what is IN the bottle-- on the nose faint fruit overpowered by oak chips. The wine was sour at first, tolerable with a Finger Lakes cheese, but then moving towards a wet-dog flavor as it opened up. Couldn't finish this one (?!) and can't recommend it, especially since I can get wonderful treasures from, say, Red Feet in Ithaca, for the same money.
