Bloomer Creek 2011 Vin d’été Unfined & Unfiltered Cabernet Franc (Finger Lakes)

  1. $18
Vin d’été means “summer wine,” and this delicate Cabernet Franc would be the perfect companion to a balmy summer eve. It’s unabashedly rustic in style, with touches of leafy herbs, clay and barnyard accentuating crisp black-cherry flavors. Brisk and sprightly on the palate, it finishes long, with a murmur of velvety tannins. Unusual and a bit mysterious, yet truly…  — A.I.  (7/1/2014)

Notes of fresh herbs and melon rind lend a verdant tone to this semi-sweet, late-harvest wine. The palate is crisp with tart green apple and peach flavors, but imbued with touches of exotic orange spice and honey that linger mysteriously on the finish.  — A.I.  (7/1/2014)

Bloomer Creek 2010 Tanzen Dame Morehouse Road Vineyard 2nd Harvest VS Dry Riesling (Finger Lakes)

  1. $34
Completely atypical to any other producer in the Finger Lakes, or likely, beyond, this semisweet Riesling is a fascinating study of winemaker Kim Engle’s unusual style. Curiously waxy on the nose with notes of lanolin and honeycomb, carmelized sugar and potpourri, it takes a while for the palate to integrate all of the flavors and aromas that emanate. Appley and…  — A.I.  (4/1/2012)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $18
Layers of spice, lanolin and orange rind stand out curiously on this intriguing Riesling fermented spontaneously with indigenous yeast, and subject to 5 months on its lees. It’s strikingly brisk with tart, lemony acidity, but rich with a rustic, savory apple flavor. It’s a funky, thoroughly unique wine, but also a remarkably complex wine to savor through the course…  — A.I.  (3/1/2014)

Exotically spiced with notes of saffron and dried orange peel, there’s a fascinating complexity to this honeyed late-harvest Riesling.
