Pre-Dinner starter. Medium gold color. Fairly weak nose for a Riesling. Some grapefruit tones, but fairly suppressed. Wine is tart with a touch of sweetness. No discernible flavors beyond that. Very short finish. Disappointing versus so many other truly great Finger Lake Rieslings.

A hint of gasoline, cheesy, pear, peach, high acid, good minerality, there is complexity to this wine, not bad.

Tangy lime and focused minerality. Lively. Aged on lees.

Really nice mineral heavy dry Riesling. Great to pair with a light dinner on a hot summer’s night.

Really excellent dry Riesling that has gained some complexity with bottle age. Very well balanced. Terrific with fish. 2014.

I tasted the 2015 a few months back and though it needed more time. This 2014 is excellent, and seems to confirm that maybe just a bit more time is needed. Passion fruit wrapped in steel. White floral notes accent lemon and golden apple, oyster shell and a touch of ginger. Really love this producer and I plan to get a few more bottles to lay down. Will be hard to keep from opening them. πŸ˜‹
