Susan Kostrzewa Rates New York Reds in Wine Enthusiast

Susan Kostrzewa, Executive Editor at Wine Enthusiast, rated a number of New York state reds highly in the February issue. And a few whites too. In menu order then.....

The whites first:
The Bloomer Creek 2007 Gewurztraminer and the Lakewood 2008 Gewurztraminer both earned scores of 88 points! As did Red New Cellars 2007 Curry Creek Vineyards Pinot Gris and Wolffer Estate 2008 Pinot Gris!

The Rose's:
Wolffer's 2008 Grandioso Rose' Table Wine earned an 87!

Now for some news of reds:
Bellangelo 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon; Bouke 2007 Red Table Wine; Osprey's Dominion 2005 Flight Meritage; and the Palmer NV Select Reserve all took home 87s!

Bellangelo 2006 Porto Elana Cabernet Sauvingon-Merlot; Miles 2002 Milesone Cabernet Franc-Merlot; and the Waters Crest 2006 Campania Rosso all took home 86s!

There were many who also earned 85s or better. Too many to recount here. Again, it is nice to see New York wineries earning these kinds of scores and recognition. Kudos to Ms.Kostrzewa.

Congrats to all concerned!!!!
