Winemakers’ Library Wednesday is TODAY!

Winemakers' Library Wednesday
2008 Red Newt Cellars Gewurz, 2007 Sheldrake Cabernet Franc Reserve

For over 15 years the Red Newt Bistro has had arguably the most extensive restaurant wine list of exclusively Finger Lakes wines in the world!   With hundreds of wines from dozens of Finger Lakes wineries, the collection includes beautifully aged vintages… many of the wines in our cellar may not exist anywhere else.  Since reducing our dinner service in 2015, these wines have been aging peacefully… but it’s time to drink them.

Today, we’ve opened up to terrific wines from the past:

2008 Red Newt Cellars  Gewürztraminer – This Gewurz is showing nicely with apricot and lychee in nose, fresh palate, lemon curd/preserves in finish.

2007 Sheldrake Point Cabernet Franc Reserve –  This Cabernet Franc is stunning! Beautiful nose of leather and raspberry preserves. Palate is tight, with persistent, delicate tannins. Tobacco and dark cherry finish. Ageing gracefully with plenty of life left.

Come on in for lunch…  Have a taste, enjoy a glass, take a bottle home !

For the rest of the day, or until the wine is sold out, we’ll offer these wines by the taste and by the glass.

Wines will be available for purchase for the next few days, or until they are gone!
