On the nose: candied pineapple, apricots, vanilla, wild honey, marzipan, almond flour and orange oil. Touches of wet limestone and chalky minerality. In the mouth: Pink grapefruit, orange oil, pineapple and lime juice. Full and opulent on the forward palate, transitioning to a saliva-inspiring acid spine and lingering finish of candied lemon. This wine has a long cellar life ahead of it. (14 % rs)

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.
