A vertical tasting of a unique New York "super blend" is set for Columbia County's Hudson-Chatham Winery.

Hudson-Chatham Empire Reserve Red is a one-of-a-kind made from equal parts Baco Noir from the Hudson Valley, Merlot from Long Island, and Cabernet Franc from the Finger Lakes, the signature red varietals of the state's three primary wine-growing regions.

The blend then is aged for two years in French and American oak casks.

The limited-attendance tasting will run from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 5.

Winemakers Carlo DeVito and Steve Casscles will be on hand to discuss the wine's creation and manifestations through the 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 (in the barrel) vintages. The tasting will include food pairings created by Blima's Catering of Hudson.

Hudson-Chatham Winery is located at 1900 State Route 66. Reservations and inquiries should be e-mailed to or by phone to 392-9463. Admission is $25 or $20 for case club members.
