This light-bodied, delightful dry red made from 100% Chelois grown at Casscles Vineyard in Athens, NY, never disappoints. We age it for 9 months in French oak and bottle-age it another six months before releasing it. With just 25 cases of the ’11 vintage, we released the wine in late March and sold out less than one month later. Now we can’t wait for the 2012, which will release in March 2014.2012 ROSÉ
We had such a great response from the Rosť we released last summer that we crafted one for 2013. Always a great wine for summer, we look forward to drinking this dry Rosť with fish, seafood, cheeses, and other summertime favorites.HUDSON RIVER VALLEY RED
For the art for this year’s label, we found another beautiful image from one of the Hudson River School’s most beloved painters, Asher Durand, called “The Indian’s Vespers.” This Beaujolais-style red blend is a perennial favorite of our customers.
