Fascinating pale gold straw color.
A cidery in the nose. Pears, fresh cut cold apple slices, peaches, slight essence of cardamom.
What a refreshing quality of effervescence to add to a tart, mineral, and blade of grass of a wine.
This is just fun, and reinvents this varietal for lovers of Riesling.
Always see the producer around and Simply Wine just added new bottles to their collection, subbing this slot in for Scribe (which is good, known, and kill the branding game, but not always best value).
Plus we got Finger Lakes in the house, which always feels great to support the local-ish wine scene.

love this. Pear on the nose with wonderful minerality clean and smooth finish which impresses me given this is a dry style riesling to get the finish so lush and soft. — 4 months ago

Nose has ripe blueberry, over-ripe blackberry, ripe plum, blackberry jam, faint anise, dry cigar, faint wood smoke and a bag of green & red peppers.
Palate has ripe plum, blackberries, black cherry, prune, old chocolate, faint moist earth and light artificial sugar.
Incredibly smooth, light tannins, but what an amazing red blend! Such an easy drinker, but coupled with a great CA vintage, a total win.
Cleaned the grill today, never ever done this in March in the Berkshires! Clean grill and warm weather equals an early start to the grilling season; beef flap steak from Kinderhook Farm (Valatie, NY) tonight, 135°F with 15m rest, beautiful pair to this wine.
