Drink Local Wine - Cascade Mountain Winery

Tucked away in Amenia, New York is Cascade Mountain Winery.  I actually visited this winery this past winter and tucked away is right.  Beautiful property and views.

This Private Reserve White is a bottle I took home with me after my visit.  Unfortunately, there is no vintage on the label, so that leads me to believe it's a mixture of different vintages.  I do know, it's a blend of Chadonnay and Seyval.

The nose had some citrus notes, followed by honeydew melon and some sweet flowering aroma of white flowers.  A distant hint of oak was detected on the palate.  The wine was soft with a hint of sweetness, pineapple and tart apple. The tart apple left a strange finish.

This wine sells in their tasting room for $15.
