I’ve posted about him before, but I stopped in over the weekend to try the new releases from Randolph O’Neill Vineyard. It’s a one-man operation, Kelley O’Neill does everything, quite literally. This is the first time he has formal hours too. Eventually there will be a separate tasting room, but for now it’s in his converted carport, along with his barrels of wine and tanks. β€’ The 2015 Cabernet Franc (2nd pic) was (and still is) one of my favorite Cabernet Francs from the Finger Lakes in recent years. That’s why I was quite excited to try the 2016 that was recently released. I also tried the new 2016 Dry Riesling as well. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ β€’ But the CF, the 2016 is quite different from the 2015. Not faulted, still well made, balanced, and structured, just different. It’s also probably obviously noticeably younger. The 2016 has much much more red fruit, it’s not chewy or jammy at all, no plum, little spice, but very strong and delicious raspberries, and a bit of vanilla too. It’s a lighter-bodied CF, teetering on light to medium, for me, not big and brooding at all. Good medium finish, it can also be chilled and stand up admirably because of the lightness and bright fruit. Some people might think it’s not all oaked. It is young, and you might be able to tell from the nose, but it’s going to age well with the apparent fruit. 2016 was also one of the hottest and driest summers here, so that likely had an impact on the outcome.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ· β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #cabernetfranc #cabernet #fingerlakes #flx #newyork #winewin #ny #winetime #winetasting #winetour #vineyard #winery #winedown #wineo #flxwine #newyorkwine #cayugalake #winecountry #drinks #upstateny #iloveny #igersusa #thirsty #winepic #lifestyle #goodlife #tasty #sip #myflx #winelover

Barnstormer Winery @barnstormerwinery Chardonnay last night out in the backyard when the sun poked through for 5 minutes! It’s dry, unoaked, very crisp, light bodied, nice citrus, lemon curd, thirst quenching on the hot and humid summer day! Can’t go wrong. Now I need more though! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ‘ β€’ β€’ β€’ #chardonnay #fingerlakes #flx #upstateny #winepic #winephotography #wineoftheday #vin #winelife #wino #ny #foodandwine #vinotinto #winetime #weekendvibes #vinho #wineoclock #newyork #winestagram #luxurylife #newyorkwine #instagood #vino #instawine #tasty #myflx #sundayfunday #goodlife #winelover #wineanddine

Weekends are for wine tasting!? Right? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ˜¬ This is the 2014 Maximilien from Ravines Wine Cellars @ravineswine . (They don't use IG much but we'll mention them anyway 🀫). It's improved and changed since I last had it. It’s a β€œmeritage” blend. I was just talking to Ben from @thewinesocial.ca about Bordeaux, and this is a perfect example of what you can get elsewhere! β€’ This is 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, and 18% Merlot, all Finger Lakes. Alcohol is only 12.5%, low for the blend, to me. Oak is French and American. β€’ It’s darker than the picture (the sunlight was strong!), darker ruby. Dark cherries, slightly ferrous, heavy plum, leather. It turns smokier once you get into it. Teethy, bitey, gritty. Finish is medium to long. There isn’t much red fruit here. It is a very well structured and well-balanced blend, though. I think it would be even better with some food! It wouldn’t be my personal choice as a sipper, but you can’t fault it for how well it’s made. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ β€’ Kinda continuing the conversation, what do you think about the whole Bordeaux vs Meritage in the New World?πŸ€”πŸ€¨πŸ· β€’ Cheers y'all and Happy Weekend!! β€’ β€’ β€’ #fingerlakes #flx #newyork #bordeaux #meritage #cabernetfranc #cabernetsauvignon #merlot #winewin #ny #winetime #winetasting #winetour #vineyard #winery #winedown #wineo #flxwine #newyorkwine #keukalake #senecalake #winecountry #drinks #upstateny #iloveny #igersusa #thirsty #winepic #lifestyle #goodlife

Nope it's not FLX, but it is delicious and might be replacing water. Really. Crispy, crunchy, tropical fruit, light citrus, super versatile, thirst quenching. It's mainly Colombard and Gros Manseng. See ya later, water. 😬😬🍷😁 β€’ β€’ β€’ #frenchwine #fingerlakes #flx #upstateny #winepic #winephotography #wineoftheday #vin #winelife #wino #ny #foodandwine #vinotinto #winetime #picoftheday #vinho #wineoclock #newyork #winestagram #luxurylife #fridaynight #instagood #vino #instawine #tasty #weekend #ny #goodlife #winelover #wineanddine

It's Friday Eve and I'm already thinking about going back here. Isn't everything better in a vineyard??

⬅️⬅️ For more!! β€’ Winos, taking you on a little throwback here when we tried more New Mexico Wine at NM Vintage, a unique bar that ONLY serves New Mexico 🍷 and 🍺 😲😲😁. β€’ They have their own wine line, Cowbelle Wine. Surprise (alternative fact) about me: CowBELLE is my middle name, so we have that in common. πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ˜¬ β€’ Some of the other NM friends they pour include: Noisy Water Winery @noisywaterwinery , Gruet Winery @gruetwinery , Luna Rossa Winery down the street, and as you can see on the menu and pics -- many, many more! πŸ‘ β€’ I always love finding new wine bars and especially lesser known regions that are making some great wine! 😍😍. Who is coming with me next time!? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ˜ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #winebar #tbt #newmexico #nm #mourvedre #latergram #travelphotography #newmexicowine #travelgram #igtravel #stayandwander #wanderfolk #huffpostgram #igers #moodygrams #illgrammers #throwback #wine #winenight #winewinewine #winegeek #wineo #merlot #winepic #monastrell #winephotography #throwback #wineblog #tempranillo

Sauvignon Blanc fans raise em up!? πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‘ŠπŸ· β€’ Guys, did you know there is some great Sauv Blanc here in the Finger Lakes!? No, it’s not ALL Riesling. But, there are only a handful (less than 10) wineries making Sauv Blanc. 😲😲 β€’ A lot of Sauv Blanc is either too thin and somewhat boring (those big cheap ones), and others are just too fruity -- to me. Some are almost TOO tropical. I like a little grapefruit, but I don’t personally want a sweet wine.. or 🐈🐈you know what 😬😬 β€’ This one from Hector Wine Company @hectorwineco is my style. It’s comfortably medium bodied but still finishes crisp and not like those thin watery ones. Strong on the peachy stonefruit, but not a sweet wine. Slightly dusty, chalky, white florality, but finishing dry. A little bit of that tropical fruit, but again not a sweet wine. β€’ This is a summer essential! Who is with me??! β€’ β€’ β€’ #winemadewithsoul #drinklocal #local #winewednesday #sauvignonblanc #fingerlakes #flx #newyork #winewin #ny #winetime #winetasting #winetour #vineyard #winery #winedown #wineo #flxwine #newyorkwine #nywine #senecalake #winecountry #drinks #upstateny #iloveny #thirsty #winepic #lifestyle #goodlife #hector

Spent some time with Mike and Donna Wilson from Bright Leaf Vineyards @brightleafvineyard here in the Finger Lakes, on the east Cayuga Lake. Bright Leaf is brand new, three weeks old!! 😳😳 β€’ They planted in 2013. The whites (Chardonnay (Oaked and Unoaked), two Rieslings are 2017). The reds, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, are 2016. More to come in the future though!! πŸ‘ β€’ Let's give them a warm welcome to this great wine community!! I'll have more in the future, but get them on your radar for now -- I was impressed with what I tried so far! 😁😁🍷🍷 β€’ β€’ β€’ #riesling #fingerlakes #flx #newyork #winewin #ny #winetime #winetasting #winetour #vineyard #winery #winedown #wineo #flxwine #newyorkwine #cayugalake #cabernetfranc #winecountry #drinks #upstateny #iloveny #weekendvibes #thirsty #winepic #lifestyle #goodlife #tasty #sip #myflx
