To Lenn and the whole team at New York Cork Report,

Ok - I NEED to get my hands on a bottle of Abbot 12 Quadrupel now...

Lenn, Evan and the whole NYCR team,

Of course all of the Paumanok crew is delighted with this great outcome. This is especially so that our competition, all friends of ours by the way, had some amazing wines lined up in front of you. You did not have an easy task and we are thrilled you enjoyed our wines.


Any chance you can amend the post and add price, production, and current tasting room availability (ie: sold out or not)?


Hopefully the other editors can chime in, but here is the info for the Long Island and Hudson Valley wines:

Millbrook Winery 2008 Block Two West Chardonnay ($35/available)
Millbrook Winery 2008 Block Five East Pinot Noir ($35/available)

Lenz Winery 2004 Cuvee ($30/available)
Paumanok Vineyards 2009 Sauvignon Blanc ($24/almost sold out)
Paumanok Vineyards 2007 Tuthill's Lane Vineyard Merlot ($60/available)
Roanoke Vineyards 2007 Blend One ($35/available)
Paumanok Vineyards 2009 Late Harvest Riesling ($50/available)

Very good question, Dave. Working on getting more answers on my end. But here's one:

Damiani 2009 Riesling is $16 and there are 100 cases left. It's probably hard to overstate how strong of a deal that is.

Niagara wine availability

Leonard Oakes Estate Chardonnay 2009 is $17 at the winery.

Freedom Run Estate Reserve Cabernet Franc 2008 is $30 and available at the winery.

Great selections - The winning wines are a great showcase of what New York can produce.
The 2007 Tuthill's Lane Merlot is one of my favorite overall wines.

Kind of curious - why do you do a LI White only and not separate out "Chardonnay" and "Other whites" separately, since pretty much every winery on LI produces a Chard?

Jeremy -

Essentially because Chardonnay is not recognized as the prized white grape of the region. It's not the chief strength. It's a kind of workhorse, and some of course produce very good versions. But if we had to choose to highlight a white grape on Long Island, it would almost certainly be Sauvignon Blanc - based not only on quality and potential, but on its natural pairing with local foods.

Thanks for the comment!
