Lenn - thanks for this post on Ravines. This is one we hadn't discovered yet. We'll add to the list for our trips in May or Oct.

I bought a case of the Ravines 2005 meritage when it came out. It's one of the few Finger Lakes reds with which I feel I can almost always demonstrate to non-believers like you (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) that the potential exists for such reds in the Finger Lakes. I'm glad Morten was able to impress you with his winemaking skills!

As to whether that potential exists in the majority of vintages or within the skill set of all winemakers is an entirely different debate. I would totally concede at this point that the average Finger Lakes red, if randomly chosen in terms of vintage and producer, would probably fall short in terms of comprehensive quality.

Have you tried my reds yet...then I will turn you on to other producers on the East Side Seneca Lake who make good to great reds...the East Side Micro-Climate works very well for reds...My reds will age for up to 15 years...now that's a bold statement...then again try my "Bold Merlot"...cheers !!!
