It gives me a great deal of pleasure to inform you that our 2015 competition held in Rochester, New York has awarded you MEDALS for the following wines:
|GOLD||Cabernet Sauvignon||2012||La Chanterelle||Walla Walla Valley||60% Golden Ridge Vineyard, 40% Minnick Hills Vineyard||100% Cabernet Sauvignon|
|BRONZE||Shiraz/Syrah||2012||Syrah||Wahluke Slope||Riverbend Vineyard||100% Syrah|
In this, our 15th year, 73 judges, all with national and international credentials, from multiple markets in Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, the United States and other wine regions of the world judged 3708 wines. In perhaps their tightest competition ever, the Finger Lakes International Judges were able to award 108 Double Gold and 270 Gold medals in the judging. Entries arrived from 27 countries, 50 states, and 6 provinces in Canada.
Again, I congratulate you on your medals and thank you for participating in the competition. Your participation has helped many children attend Camp Good Days & Special Times (a camp for terminally ill children with cancer) this summer.
