The first thing you notice about Christopher Tracy, winemaker at Long Island's Channing Daughters, is his enthusiasm and sense of wonder. Whether discussing semi-carbonic Dornfelder, his new label designs, or introducing you to his picking team, his joy is infectious.Drinking his wines is no different. Each one of his 30 cuvées is a microcosm of terroir using a slew of non-dogmatic traditional methods. That's right, 30 cuvées. Each of them thoughtful, intentional, fascinating--joyful.
I love this project from Christopher Tracy - all of these vermouths are so incredibly individual and interesting, worth sipping on their own but a delish twist on the usual for those martinis. This one is a bit more herbaceous - not super spicy. Just love it!
