Located in New York’s Finger Lakes region, Red Tail Ridge Winery is owned and operated by husband and wife Mike Schnelle and Nancy Irelan. As a former executive in charge of viticulture and oenology R&D at a large winery, Nancy strongly believes in sustainability. Not only is Red Tail Ridge farmed in a sustainable manner it is also the first LEED certified winery in New York. Everything at Red Tail Ridge reflects Nancy and Mike’s attention to detail the winery that they built from scratch to their limited production, premium single varietal wines. The bulk of Red Tail Ridge’s production is Riesling, but Nancy and Mike have also planted several clones of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir alongside small experimental plots of Blaufrankisch, Dornfelder and Teroldego. Mike and Nancy’s early efforts were duly noted by the press they won several Gold and Silver medals, Wine Business Monthly named Red Tail Ridge one of its Hot Small Brands of 2008 and Eric Asimov the wine critic of The New York Times has lauded them for their efforts.

Tasting notes
Cherry and black pepper aromas mingle with cloves, cinnamon, tobacco and oregano. Prominent flavors of black cherry and tart red fruit are nicely framed by firm tannins and balanced acidity.

Technical notes
Fruit harvested from the Martini Family Vineyard, located on the northwestern shore of Seneca Lake, was fermented in small stainless tanks and aged in neutral American and French oak for 19 months.
