From the Producer

Capturing the pure color and robe of Burgundian Pinot Noir kept us on our toes in 2014. That is why we enjoy the challenge of Pinot — it never lets you rest. The Classique is our blend of five different vineyards, Sawmill Creek (2 blocks), Leidenfro

Critical Acclaim

VN93 Vinous Jul 2016

"A beautiful wine that stands out as one of the best Pinot Noirs I tried from the Finger Lakes. The color is impressive for the region — a deep garnet that diminishes at the rim. The nose evokes Burgundy with its scents of sweet cherries, potting soil, and cedar. The palate displays a touch of the region’s hallmark austerity but balances that with a fair amount of polish. While there is certainly more tannin than you would see in a Burgundy, they are more suave than in most Finger Lakes Pinots. An oak signature is certainly present, and while it does not distract, I certainly wouldn’t want any more of it. Very nice, very well-made." (93 pts.)

"Supple and charming, featuring lightly mulled cherry fruit mingling with cinnamon, clove and sous-bois hints. Drink now. 450 cases made." (88 pts.)

Finger Lakes

Officially established in 1982, the Finger Lakes region has a storied history of wine production in New York State and is recognized the world over. The deep glacially formed lakes offer sublime growing conditions thanks to the sloping hillsides and moderating effect the lakes have on the temperature of the surrounding area.

The main growing regions are centered around Cayuga Lake and Seneca Lake (which each have their own AVAs) but quality wine is being made throughout the region. Riesling is the belle of the ball in the Finger Lakes (oftentimes being compared to the Rieslings of Germany) but success has been had with Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, and others.

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
