Finger Lakes Wines

I can't believe I haven't thought of this before now. Perhaps it's a stroke of inspiration from polishing off a half bottle we had in the fridge. But we'll now have a place to discuss Finger Lakes wines. 

I'm finishing off a bottle of "Kiss My Ass" Red Wine from Pompous Ass Winery in Rock Stream.

I'll warn you right off the bat, I don't know all the tasting lingo, nor do I spit alcohol out into a bucket. 

This is a more sweet red, and since I hate wine that tastes like the wood it aged in, it suits me just fine. Perhaps one of the few "reds" out there I like. 

See what else they have to offer at http://www.pompousasswinery.com/ourwines.php

Focus: Discuss some of your favorite regional wines.

LOVE THIS TOPIC!!!!

Although I would certainly not start off a wine post with a sweet red, but hey, to each their own.

Some of my favorite local wineries:

Damiani- Seneca Lake- these guys are awesome- very welcoming, very "green"- they are one of the only grape fields that are grown naturally, without a lot of pesticides and structured vines. They have a divine geuwerziminier (which is kind of spicy, great with spicy foods) and chardonnays.

Unlike Chris, I love the oak barrel flavor in my wines.

Lakewood- their lemberger is to die for!

Fox Run- Besides having the amazing chef Brud Holland on staff, they have some very nice rieslings and lemberger!

I could have started it off with the HHJ. ;)

What's HHJ?

Just don't mention Red Cat- that stuff is only good for jello-shots and rock gut!

You answered the first line with your second. 

HHJ= "Hector Horny Juice"= Red Cat

And I happen to enjoy it with crushed ice. I keep it classy.

I should have known! :ph34r:

I used to like it, when I was first trying out wine. Then I tasted real wine.

People love it, their winery is always packed full of people having a good time. It's just not a flavor I prefer.

Did I say Lemberger?

Atwater has a really nice Niagra, I should get a bottle or two of that. 

Last time we were there we also bought a mulled wine kit that we saved for a family party. That was pretty damned good, but just make sure you have enough people that'll drink it.

I do have quite a few bottles from Finger Lakes Winery’s . I could probably review some but I have a new bottle of Tre’s Gatos 2017 Concord that I will have to taste and review in another topic . 😃

Chris, you do like the sweet stuff.  Niagara makes my teeth hurt.  lol.

I don't like the oak either but do like it dry.  The "no oak" Chardonnay from Treleaven winery is really good.  I just tried a dry riesling from Glenora which I did not expect to like and it was actually pretty good.

I absolutely do. I can't handle the dryer stuff.
