The Pleasant Valley Wine Company, popularly known as the Great Western Winery, located near the village of Hammondsport, New York is the oldest winery in the Finger Lakes region. Established in 1860, the winery proudly displays the designation U.S. Bonded Winery No. 1 and has eight remarkable stone buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Discovered this while on the tour in Hammondsport. It's a light desert wine with a strong nose of chocolate. Nice sipper for after dinner.
this is like drinking a tootsie roll. i've never tasted anything like it before. excellent dessert wine.
Wine has a very strong chocolate flavor to it so if you're not a chocolate fan then skip it! This wine goes great combined with Pleasant Valley's Autumn Frost strawberry flavored wine. The server at Pleasant Valley told me that I should add 2 parts Chocolate Lab to 1 part Autumn Frost to create a "chocolate covered strawberry" and I must say it's pretty yummy!
My all time favorite red wine. . . .
Tasty dessert wine. You can pick up the chocolate in the scent and the finish. We enjoyed it very much.
My friend gave me a glass of this to try...I think I have a new favorite wine! Pleasant aroma, not too sweet and just a touch of chocolate flavor at the end. A real treat.
External Reviews for Pleasant Valley Chocolate Lab
Iandrsquo;m a Golden Doodle and proud of it, but I went to school with a bunch of Labradoodles and they used to swear by this wine (apparently, it was made in honor of one of their distant relatives). So, I gave it a shot and it turns out itandrsquo;s quite delicious. I enjoy it after a rawhide bone or a mid-evening nap.
Not just for dog lovers, this sweet Concord wine married with chocolate flavors is a hit with desserts or on its own.
