Finger Lakes Wine: Rate 'em as you taste 'em

Postby Matt » Mon May 23, 2011 11:36 am

Rate those wines as you sample them...

My preference right now goes to

Kiss My Ass Blush from Pompous Ass Winery
I like the mild-sweet flavor and concord touch at the end.

Leidenfrost Vineyards Niagara
Has a powerful grape flavor. I like the desserty-sweetness.

Great thread idea... :up:

I've never acquired a taste for wine...but perhaps Ill open a FL Micro Brew thread (that is if I can get myself away from the likes of Molson Canadian and Bud Light which is what I drink when I drink beer. Any other beer drinkers feel free to start up a thread...or I shall, once I get out and try something new.

Start it... I'm sure my brother can join in and contribute (having sampled a lot more than the average man should).

Have you ever tried Red Cat Matt? I think that it's right up your alley! It makes great slushies.

There was a beer thread in the General Discussions area awhile back but I can't find it now.

We've tried wine threads in the past too, but they just never really took off. I'll honestly only make fun of Matt's preferences!

My favorite wines continue to be anything from Shalestone Vineyards. I'm a dry, red girl (other than Red Cat slushies, that is) and that's all they do.

Is anyone watching the Stanley Cup? Bully Hill has taken up some board space for advertisement :up:

Wagner Vineyards
Niagara - I enjoy a good niagara, but this had too much alcohol, and not enough grapy goodness. :down:

Bully Hill
Banty Red - made from red and white grapes

What scale are we using here? Hmmm.....5 point scale it is.

5/5
(With apologies to Brenda) I like sweet and I got it. Bully Hill's sweetness rating on the label is great! There seems to be one red even sweeter....and that's next up.
