"Lamoreaux Landing 2016 Finger Lakes Cabernet Franc: New York's Finger Lakes does well by grape varieties other than riesling, as confirmed by the refinement and stability of this graceful cabernet franc, built to pair with dishes of finesse and freshness." Judge Mike Dunne
The competition, regarded as the largest American wine competition, received nearly 7,000 entries this year from all across the country, and we are honored to be among the top-scoring wines.
Dry Riesling featured among Finger Lakes Riesling Recommendations in Forbes
"This is a bone-dry Riesling, with a distinct mineral note of wet stone followed by lemon zest and lime on the nose. The crisp acidity highlights notes of peach and apricot stone fruit, with hints of tropical fruit. A nicely balanced wine, reminiscent of Alsatian Rieslings, which pairs with a wide selection of foods and serves equally well as an aperitif."

VinePair Recommends 2016 Cabernet Franc for Thanksgiving
Lamoreaux Landing 2016 Cabernet Franc
Baked plum and cacao nib on the nose hints at this vintage's depth and intensity. Vivid black currant carries through the palate, laced with savory tones of oregano and black pepper, delicately balanced by a smoky, earthy finish. Enjoy with roasted poultry and savory vegetables, braised short ribs or horseradish mashed potatoes.
2016 Round Rock Vineyard Riesling Featured as Top Labor Day Recommendation in Wine Enthusiast
"While there are plenty of wines that fit the bill when firing up the grill, any time you're entertaining a large group of friends and loved ones, affordability is as key as flavor. And there's no better way to celebrate working people of this country than exploring the of the vast world of value U.S. wine."
Lamoreaux Landing 2016 Round Rock Vineyard Riesling - Finger Lakes, 90 POINTS
Sourced from a five-acre plot on the east side of Seneca Lake, this Riesling is bright and focused on the nose in tones of limestone, white blossom, underripe peach and green apple.

American Chardonnay For While You Cook (and With Dinner)
While lavishly oaky and luscious in feel, this barrel-fermented Chardonnay maintains balance and levity. It's a ripe, plump wine, but fresh in acidity and delicate apple, lemon and spice flavors. A kiss of vanilla lingers nicely on the finish. –Anna Lee Iijima
TAKE NOTE: Since this article's publication, we have sold out of our 2015 Reserve Chardonnay (view our technical sheet ) in our tasting room and online, and have since released our 2016 Reserve Chardonnay, which has not been rated yet, and is available in our tasting room and online.

"Lamoreaux has one of the more beautiful tasting rooms in the Finger Lakes, a wooden Greek Revival building with magnificent views of the vine-filled slopes and Seneca Lake. Owner and winemaker Mark Wagner's wines are the perfect accompaniment to the view; his Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and Riesling are particularly strong."
