About a month ago, a group of us took a trip to Anyela’s Vineyard, just south of the picturesque town of Skaneateles, New York, and overlooking Skaneateles Lake.
For a tasting fee of $2.00, we were able to taste five wines, and amongst the twelve offerings, two were standouts for me.
The second standout was the Anyela Overlay, a blend of 35% Cabernet Franc, 25% Pinot Noir, 24% Syrah, and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon. I am generally underwhelmed with New York State reds, but this blend was smooth and full bodied with hints of dark berries and a little spice. A bottle went home with me to share with the Wine Wise Guys! We’ll see what the rest of the group thinks.
