New York Times wine critic takes notice.

In a November 2017 New York Times article, ROC/FLX Craft Beverage Trail member Inspire Moore was mentioned in a big way. The Naples, New York winery was lauded by wine critic Eric Asimov and made his list for top Cabernet Francs in the Finger Lakes. Asimov chose Inspire Moore’s 2014 “Wisdom” as his No. 3 choice, calling it a “deliciously saline, savory mouthful, with flavors of both tart and sweet fruit.”

Asimov’s story, Cabernet Franc and the Finger Lakes: Made for Each Other, highlights the Finger Lakes area as an up-and-coming region for cab francs. He points out that in the past 10 years, only one New York State region has been recognized for the world-class wines it has produced. And that region is the Finger Lakes.
