2017 Estate Blaufränkisch

Brown spice and earthy sweet aromatics. Hints of black strap molasses. Brambly and earthy red fruit flavors complemented by lesser notes of boysenberry and black cherry. Soft and plush texture mid-palate, edged with a slightly racy tannic and phenolic edge. The finish is lengthened by a persistent, acid spine.
*Fruit sourced from Red Tail Ridge Vineyard

About the Winery

Red Tail Ridge Winery

Community. Sustainability. Creativity.

James Beard Semi-Finalist in 2019 & 2020

We make small batches of handmade wine; we are minimal interventionists, preferring to do all the work upfront in the vineyard, during the growing season.

With a climate similar to the cool climate regions in Europe, the Fingers Lakes is the perfect place to experiment. We have embraced our terroir and are focusing our efforts on wines that speak to our specific climate and soils. It was important to Michael and I to set us up for the long-term, which is why we became a LEED-gold certified green winery—currently the only one in New York State.

This community and environment is everything I could have hoped for when considering where to experiment, grow and give back.
