White Horse Winery 2019 Estate Traminette
89 points
$20
Medium straw color. Aromas and flavors of lychee, lilac, elderflower, white peppercorn, and sliced peaches with a round, crisp, moderately sweet medium body and a polished, easy finish with nuances of lemon zest, white peppercorn, fresh dill, and honeycomb with no oak flavor. An off-dry and floral white, a perfect match for hearty lunches.
White Horse Winery 2018 Estate Chambourcin
88 points
$19
Medium violet color. Aromas and flavors of black raspberry, leather, and herbs de provence with a supple, lively, dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, compelling, medium-length finish conveying impressions of black plum, grilled meat, black cherry, and cedar with well-integrated tannins and no oak flavor. A red that is bright and light-on-its-feet with dark fruit and savory notes; a great food wine.
Salem Oak Vineyards NV Christopher Andrew Chambourcin

Garnet black color. Fruity, earthy aromas of smoked plums and cranberry sauce with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length tomato leaf, graphite, and crushed blackberries finish with a suggestion of oak flavor. A concentrated and well-structured Chambourcin that will fit right in at the table; smoky and Pinotage-like.

Aromas and flavors of candied apricot, thompson seedless, fragrant banana, bee pollen, and tomato leaf with a satiny, crisp, fruity sweet light body and an effortless, engaging, medium-length finish manifesting suggestions of lemon-ginger candies and lychee with no oak flavor. A boldly fruity and vivid Niagara wine with a nice sense of purity.

Light garnet color.
