This greeting comes a few days late, and for good reason. We had been “sworn to secrecy” regarding announcing until today that we won some awards at the 2019 Pennsylvania Farm Show Wine Competition.
We entered five wines in the competition (held in early November), and we were awarded five medals: a sweep!
2017 Riesling, Bronze Medal
2017 Chardonnay, Bronze Medal
2016 Commonwealth, Silver Medal
2016 Merlot, Bronze Medal
2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Bronze Medal
The Commonwealth is our tribute to classic French red bordelaise-style wine: a blend of 36% Cabernet Franc, 35% Merlot, and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Both the 2017 Riesling and 2017 Chardonnay are the finest wines that I have tasted and seen over my past six vintages here at Logan’s View, characterized with excellent true-to-variety fruitiness, body and balance.
The Merlot is marked by beautiful balance of oak, fruit, soft tannin and acidity, and is one of our best Merlots from the past six vintages.
2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is exhibiting the benefit of receiving extended aging, after 14 months in bulk storage and 22 months in the bottle. Both bouquet and flavor are integrating really well, and this wine will continue to improve over the next years.
So, the 2018’s are currently clarifying in the case of fruits, whites and rosés, and the reds have begun barrel aging.
We truly appreciate your business, and have a very Happy New Year!
Enjoy your wine in good health!
