This Christmas I was given a bottle of Devonian wine from 2 very dear friends of mine with a request that I blog about it. Devonian dry red wine is produced by Anthony Road Wine Company located in the Fingerlakes region of New York State. I have been meaning to make the trip to the wineries in this region and being originally from Syracuse I really have no excuse as to why I have yet to tour that area. This particular winery uses only grapes grown in the region for all of their wines. This red variety is a blend of cabernet franc, lemberger, pinot noir, and rougeon. Some of these are aged in oak and then blended together to form the finished product. When my boyfriend and I opened the bottle we were struck with a strong cherry nose and huge black cherry flavor. This red wine is all fruit and very delicious. It is smooth and has a slight acid to it that is on the back end of the finish. This is one of several Fingerlakes wines that I have tried recently and based on what I have tasted I am hoping to make a trip there before the year’s end. Thanks to Denise and Neil for the great recommendation!
