Hmm, I'm sure that with a little research I can find a wine with New England or Patriot(s) in the name. ;)

Bully Hill Niagara.

I'm not a fan a Bully Hill Wines. They have wonderful labels, bottles, and a great variety, but I have yet to try one I would purchase again.

Their Niagara is a decent Niagara, but that's it. Niagara grapes, a bit too much alcohol; No detail; no hints of anything. It seems distilled.
For the price, I'd look elsewhere.

Tried their Fat Red Frog the other night. Pretty good.

Been meaning to post these for a while.

As a point of reference, I'm new to wine - but have sort of taken up trying as many New York state wines as I can - a few per week. As a newbie, I prefer the sweeter ones, but from what people tell me - there will likely be some shift as I develop a wine palate. I'm not there yet, but I do find myself saying some are just too sweet. Maybe I'm on my way.

For now:

Bully Hill Banty Red 5/5
Bully Hill Spring White Niagara 3.5/5
Salmon Run Chardonnay 2/5
Taylor Lake Country White 3.5/5
Bully Hill Sweet Walter Red 4.5/5
Dr. Franks Semi-Dry Reisling 4/5
Salmon Run Coho Red 3/5
Bully Hill Sweet Walter White 5/5
Wagner Niagara 4/5
Bully Hill Aurore 5/5
Bully Hill Ravat 51 5/5
Bully Hill Growers Red 4/5
Heron Hill Reisling 3/5
Penguin Bay Tuxedo White 5/5
Fulkerson Red Zeppelin 3.5/5
Chateau Lafayette Roaring Red 0/5
Fulkerson Ravat 51 3/5
Lucas Vineyard Tugboat Red 3/5
Pompous Ass Kiss My Ass White 3/5
Pompous Ass Kiss My Ass Red 3/5
Eagle Crest Concord 5/5
Honeymoon Trail Chillin’ Concord 3/5
Eagle Crest Yummy 3/5
Montezuma Winery Fat Red Frog 4.5/5

Well, I can cross back tattoo off my WishList now. These tire tracks look to be pretty permanent. One hell of a bus.

Swedish Hill - Svenska White 3/5

It was OK, but it wasn't like "eating fresh grapes right off the vine" like the label boasts. Not much to it.

Svenska White used to be one of my "go to" wines back in my days of sweet whites. I've actually gone too far in the other direction now, and I need to develop a greater appreciation for some of the better local whites. I find that the more pairing events that I participate in really helps. This coming weekend is the annual Chocolate & Wine Weekend on the Seneca Wine Trail.
