tasting notes

The reds from Glacier Ridge Vineyard have a power and structure that is unique to the Finger Lakes; a credit to the spectacular vineyard they hail from and management by Tony Damiani. Vinification of this Merlot is straightforward and traditional using ripe, gently crushed fruit, warm fermentations punched down frequently by hand, aging in a mix of new and older American oak barrels, and minimal racking and blending. The goal is to let the fruit express the structure, fruit and tannins that come from the vineyard.
