Spaten-Franziskaner-Bräu Inbev Variety NV

Winemaker's Notes:

The Dry Creek Valley, known primarily for its delicious Zinfandel, also produces very intense and flavorful Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This impressive Cabernet displays compelling aromas of sweet cherry, lush plum, and roses. The opulence of this wine shines through with a harmonious core of silky smooth tannins and rich fruit. Palate filling flavors of sweet currant, black cherry, and cocoa are perfectly balanced. This delicious wine should age beautifully for a decade or more. Grapes 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc Appellation: Dry Creek Valley Fermentation: Fermented 20 days (on skins) at 83º F Barrel Aging: 20 months in French and American oak Alcohol: 13.5% Total Acidity: 0.61 pH: 3.73 Residual Sugar: Dry Aging Potential: 8 - 12 years

Voga:
Voga is an Italian wine brand in the under $10 range with unique bottle shapes reminiscent of perfume bottles. The still wines, a Pinot Grigio, Merlot, “Rosa,” and Quattro red blend, are available in cylindrical bottles with a sleek, dark cap. The sparkling wine, a 100% Pinot Grigio, has a more triangular shape, with a clear cap exposing the cork.

Retasted recently and this wine is progressing nicely. A lot more oak immediately upon opening than I remembered. After 20 mins in a decanter, the wine opens up to beautiful blueberry, black raspberry and even more blueberry notes aromas and flavors. The tiny amount of Petite Sirah is really coming across melded with the supple Cabernet. This blend should be great with a few more years age.

Nice golden color. The nose shows caramel, and spice with a wierd BBQ aroma, maybe cumin? Unctous in the mouth with medium high acidity. The palate reveals flavors of caramel, minerals, earth, maybe chocolate, and buttered toast? Weird strange wine, not sure what to think. 2.5/5 [NR]

I have had Gruner Veltliners that I loved, but this was not one of them. A fairly simple, light, and sour wine with a bit of lime and cider in the flavor. This appears to be the Austrian version of inexpensive California Chardonnay.

Second wine of Ch. Latour. I bought the 1990 & 2000. This is perfect Paulliac. Complex, long lasting, classic. I paid $33 a bottle as a future.

    This vine is made of pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay grapes. It should be served well chilled and goes well as apertif, with light starters or just as a drink.

    The Premier Group started carrying Eagle Crest wines a year ago, after we met owner Will Ouweleen at an industry event in Albany. Shortly thereafter my family and I visited the vineyards, originally founded as O-Neh-Da Vineyard in 1872 by Bishop Bernard McQuaid, located about an hour from Orchard Park. We were treated to a wonderful tour of the estate and experienced the privilege of tasting his delicious, 100% Finger Lakes wine. This was one of the Draves family’s favorites, a 100% pure grape wine (no sugar added) offering tropical fruit on the nose, followed by pineapple and citrus notes, with mouthwatering grapefruity acidity on the finish. It is an off-dry, fruity, crisp wine that is pleasant enough for a party yet not out of place on the dinner table. Food pairing: poultry, seafood Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: light Finish: crisp

    This New York State Rosandeacute; is light and fruity with subtle hints of sweet strawberry and cranberry. An easy-sipping style that is perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon at home.

    A light, sweet, grapey blend of Concord and Catawba. Great as a dessert wine or just for sipping.

    Superb value, a pretty box,, what more do you want? Dry and crisp, effervescent white peach and pear tickles the tastebuds and finishes with meyer lemon freshness. The ample body pairs well with smoked salmon, French charcuterie, classic blanquette de veau or even an apricot tarte tatin.

    Tasting Notes:

    Muscador’s Muscat grapes are aromatic and provide persistent notes for a characteristic flavour. The rosé has essentially floral notes and should be served very cool (between 6 and 8°C) and enjoyed as an aperitif, with desserts or to add a little sweetness to any time of the day.
