Beautiful Marbling!

About our Wine Picks

We like wines that are a great value - rich and tasty but not too expensive. We like to keep the price of our most of our wines under $20 a bottle. Under $10 is a real plus! Our favorite places to buy wine are GCP in Horseheads, NY and Northside Wine and Liquor in Ithaca, NY. Both of these stores have a huge selection of spirits, fine customer service, and excellent prices. But we frequently shop at the wineries themselves. Since we live so close to the Finger Lakes, we drink alot of Finger Lakes wines. However, we will also include many other wines that we find to be of excellent value regardless of where they are from.

If we like a wine, we will feature it here, alphabetically, but we won't list anything that we didn't enjoy.

We might have some tasting notes here, but our opinions change all the time, depending on lots of different factors. We try to drink at least a bottle or two before we put it up. Taste impressions are pretty subjective, so if its listed here, we liked it.

Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

 

 

This champagne can't be beat for the price. We have enjoyed many bottles of this nice, dry champagne that averages about $10 a bottle. So, crack a bottle of bubbly with your dinner or desert.

Chateau de Gevrey Chambertin

Gevrey-Chambertin

 

Charles, one of our customers who is a tanker broker, gave my dad a bottle of this as a gift. We drank it for my father's 82nd birthday along with a rump roast, and broccoli from the garden.

The wine was delicious and smooth with a slight peppery flavor on the back of the tongue and lots of fruit, grape and cherry on the front. I think we drank it a little early - I have a feeling it could have used a few more years in the bottle. This is why we like wines that are made to be drunk immediately, or withing a couple of years - its just too difficult to cellar wine for any extended period of time - we just don't have the discipline, run low, and drink it!

Synchronicity

 

A delicate, dry Syrah blend with a little bit of plummy fruit on the front and a really delicate pepperinesss afterward. This is a wine you can drink early and often with any of our meat.

2008 Merlot

 

 

This is a delicious Merlot from our friends at Keuka Spring Vineyards - another wine that we can drink from dawn till dawn and often do.

Gewurtztraminer

 

We've tried this outstanding Gewurtztraminer with a number of beef dishes that are traditionally paired with red wines. It went great with our Osso Bucco and Chuck Roast recipes. I haven't tried it with Thai or Indian - but Im fairly certain it would go well with those and other spicy dishes.

Crooked Lake White

 

 

This is a tasty blend sure to have a wide appeal. My 21 year old daughter is new to wine drinking and she enjoyed this immensely at the Keuka Harvest Festival this September (2011). It is slightly sweet, but not overpoweringly so.
