Barnstormer is a newcomer to the Finger Lakes wine scene but this Port-style fortified wine made from Blaufränkisch is a delightful sign of good things to come. Perfect black currant and cherry flavors are fresh and pristine but deeply concentrated, filling the mouth in rich, supple waves. It's boldly structured yet balanced, finishing with a hint of granite minerality.
