Glad you enjoyed the wines. I do not think I could have written a better review.
Unfortunately both next dinners are sold out but because of the success of this formula, we are thinking about making this a monthly event. So stay tuned, as there may be a chance to have you join future dinners.



Charles: It's disappointing, but in no way surprising, that the final two dinners have sold out.

Congratulations on the series of dinners and on how well the wines showed last weekend. You and your family should be very proud, as I'm sure you are.

Great stuff. This is a key component to a wine region still in a relatively nascent stage. There must be an effort to track aging potential, structure, etc. It would be idiotic to declare that a wine will age for 35 years when we haven't been here that long making the wine; fortunately, instead of bluster, we get the patient, hard-working folks at places like Paumanok. And across the island there are similar approaches; the folks at Shinn, and Raphael, and so many others are building libraries and tracking the developments. It's fascinating.

Of course, I don't find anything wrong with predicting a wine's trajectory. But it must be done with humility and an open mind, and NY state can be proud of its patience. Too bad we'll be gone when the coming generations have much more of an idea of what to expect.
