Millbrook 2007 Block Five East Best Wine in the Hudson Valley
The other night Dominique and I attended the 2009 Hudson Valley wine awards. Millbrook won the Cornell Cup for the "Best Wine in the Hudson Valley" for their 2007 Block Five East.
John Graziano and David H. Bova were both in attendance for the best wine presentation and acceptance of the trophy.
All the hoopla aside, the wine was wonderful. It was a nice deep ruby color. It had lots of cherry, some dark fruit, and a lovely rounded mouthfeel. Dry and delicious, this wine is a tremendous wine - something the Hudson Valley should be proud of!!!
Congrats to Millbrook Vineyards and to John and David - a well deserved award!
