12 Top-Rated New York Wines, From the Finger Lakes to Long Island

New York wines to look for:

Dr. Konstantin Frank 2017 Old Vines Pinot Noir (Finger Lakes); $22, 90 points.

Aromas of freshly pressed cherries, earthy stems and delicate peppery spice carry the nose of this Pinot Noir that’s partially sourced from vineyards on Keuka Lake that were planted in 1958. The light-bodied palate is rounded and juicy in feel, with tart cherry and currant flavors pushed along by persistent acidity. A delicate cocktail bitters note arises on the midpalate and resolves into the smooth, silky tannins on the finish.
