Where It's From

District / Finger Lakes

View more wines from 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.

Region / New York

Seeing as our store is located in the midst of New York's wine regions, we have a special affinity for New York wines. And so should you! New York is now producing some of the world's best Rieslings and Pinot Noirs, and there are lots of other terrific wines made from grapes like Catawba, Niagara, Cabernet Franc and others being produced here, as well. Every year, the quality, reputation, and demand for New York wines continue to soar. What are you waiting for? Uncork New York!

Country / 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.

JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, July 3, 2023
For an entry-level wine this is a stunner! Wonderful nose of white peach, lemon blossom and jasmine. So succulent, with excellent ripeness and concentration, but nothing flashy or any hint of opulence. The best thing about the wine is the long, very silky finish. And this is properly dry. Drink or hold. (Stuart Pigott)

The ripe mirabelle, plum and melon aromas pour from the glass, but they remain delicate rather than lush. Quite powerful and succulent, but the crisp acidity structure keeps it on track on the very clean and subtly mineral finish, where the apricot note expands as it rolls off into the distance. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)

A stunner year over year, this single-vineyard Riesling delves into earthy aromas of fennel pollen and sunbaked field flowers, with a solid core of yellow apple, and white peach. It’s rounded and full in feel, filling out by broad pome- and stone-fruit flavors underscored by white tea and blossoms. A gentle honeycomb-wax note lends delightful grip to the dry finish. (Alexander Peartree)

Juicy and engaging, with peach, pear and mirabelle plum notes bouncing playfully off each other, while honeysuckle and anise hints peek in. Long, zingy finish. Drink now through 2030. 800 cases made. (James Molesworth)

The 2020 Magdalena is in its infancy, showing a cool aromatic profile of spiced apple, lemon and a hint of orange peel. It’s expansive on the palate, with plenty of body but also plenty of acidity and phenolic structure to frame the weighty entry.
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 21st Apr 2022
The 2020 Riesling Magdalena Vineyard comes in with seven grams of residual sugar and 12.4% alcohol. A little lighter and brighter, this doesn’t have the concentrated mouthfeel of, say, the Riesling Reserve in this report, but it is more transparent, more expressive and just seems sunnier. I could make an argument that this is the best of the group, at least today. That conclusion does require that you appreciate elegance more than concentration, but this shows beautifully. The upper-level submissions in this report all perform well, are pretty close qualitatively and may flip places as they age, but for the moment, this has some pretty good bragging points. Then, I retasted the Riesling Reserve and the HJW and started arguing with myself again. Perhaps in the end it is more a question of being different than better, with this being the most different of the three. So it goes with young Riesling. Let’s come back in five years and see what they look like with a little age. For the moment, they are all pretty fine and reasonable minds might differ. (Mark Squires)

A beautifully made crowd-pleaser, which is as vibrant and light-footed as it is juicy and peachy. Super-fresh with tons of garden-herb character that makes it hard to believe this has 28 grams per liter of unfermented grape sweetness. Wild-fermented in stainless steel. Vegan. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Aromas of canned pear and apple are met with candied white grapefruit and fennel pollen on the nose. Apple and pineapple flavors are jolted up by a kick of tonic on the palate. This sweet Riesling ends brisk and clean on the quick finish. (Alexander Peartree)

Very dry and somewhat tart, there’s a nice contrast between the sour-cherry scent and the sweet red-berry flavors, finishing dry and on point.
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2023
A radiant lipstick pink, there’s a slight mustiness at first still, but there’s also oodles of ripe strawberry, cherry and cream. The palate is on the rich, full bodied side. There’s just enough acidity to buoy the creamy texture and slight sweetness, but it falls a bit flat at the finish. Straightforward and pleasing. (Christina Pickard)

Fragrant nose, with aromas of violets and ripe red berries. Still a bit young, but good balance of energetic ripe red-fruit character, fine tannins and lively acidity. Quite a sleek finish, but everything fits. Very good aging potential. Drink or hold.
WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 12/22
Olive, pepper and plum scents give this wine a vinous feel. With air, it becomes floral, all violet and lavender. The texture is lithe and velvety, a lively red for duck.
WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 7/1/2023
A deep cherry juice color, this is quite a powerful, rich Cab Franc with ripeness only achievable in the chilly Finger Lakes in a great vintage like 2020. The red berry tart, vanillin oak, mint, ground black pepper and dried herbal notes are framed in muscular tannins. Finishes on the short side, and is really more mid-weight than full, but is a sturdy wine for big red lovers. (Christina Pickard)

Plenty of positive lemon and peachy aromas in the nose. Light-bodied, but it has some depth on the mid-palate for the difficult vintage. Falls away a bit at the finish, but very good harmony. Just 9% alcohol. Drink now. Screw cap.
