A wonderful write up Evan and many congratulations to our friends at Anthony Road...it is much deserved!

It was a very exciting moment when they announced Anthony Road as the winner of the 2009 Governor's Cup. The emotion was real and raw and it was a great day for Finger Lakes and New York wines. Thanks for the coverage.

Very accurate assessment of J.R., Evan. He is a true gentleman in the industry, who always passes credit to others. The Martinis and he have been doing great, yet ever-improving work, for so long. The cup doesn't surprise me at all.

Yes, congratulations to Johannes!

I was thinking of a whole other rant post, but to save my breath I will simply state that the overall results of this year's Classic competition are very plausible and realistic. The Anthony Road semi-dry is a very good wine by any measure, and Sheldrake Point is a great winery that is in the lead pack of quality year after year.

For too many years in a row, the Classic results have left me scratching my head. I'm still mystified by many elements of the judging and competition, but in this year's case I could not agree more about these two main results. Congratulations to Johannes and Sheldrake for continued good work!
