Wrote Ms. Savoie: Hudson-Chatham Winery: Carlo and Dominique DeVito acted on their love of wine several years ago – moving from New Jersey, buying an old farm and planting vines. Their winery specializes in small handmade batches. They are doing great things with the Baco Noir grape. The Reserve 2010 is light and spicy, while the Old Vines 2010 is dense and complex, with dried black cherry notes. They also make “Empire,” which blends three wines made from Baco Noir from the Hudson Valley, Merlot from Long Island and Cabernet Franc from the Finger Lakes. Their 2009 Estate Seyval Blanc is dry with apple pie notes. []
