Thin and uninteresting at first , but after just half an hour of decanting this wine blossoms into something quite interesting. Another 30 minutes in the decanter brings very nice Russian River fruity and flowery aromas and flavors—strawberry and earth, gentle tannins and balanced acidity. Quite an improvement from the last bottle I tried four years ago. Enjoyed the 2014 vintage with USDA Prime New York steak.￼ — 2 days ago
Brilliant stuff. Earthy but clean floral and honey aromas, and then the palate is a perfect balance of tartness, an almost imperceptible sweetness (though this seems basically dry), great volume, and a long resonant finish. Don’t write off mead till you’ve tried a selection from these guys. — 2 months ago
Orange, citrus peel nose. Stone fruit, much more stable than last year’s. Solid. — 5 months ago
Riesling cdc 2020. Rich on the nose & palate. Upstate acidity. Just superb. — 7 months ago
Semi sweet and very pleasant Riesling from the New York Hudson area (big hopes for the future) with apricot and white cherry. Not too much acidity and short finish, but still very nice! — 8 months ago
Finally able to visit one of my favorite breweries to start off a long weekend in the Hudson Valley. Crisp and delicious pils on tap, but leaving with a bunch of barrel aged country beers! — 2 months ago
Earthy and savory. Some fizz. Acid driven, red plum. — 3 months ago
Nose has candied pineapple, very ripe nectarine, straw bale, white/yellow flowers and lemon peel.
Palate has tangerine zest, Mandarin orange slice, under-ripe peach, wet river rocks, slightly waxy texture with a short finish.
A quite youthful bottle, revisit 2026+
On point with the Spätlese style connection per Vinous comments.
Paired to Chicken Adobo (Milk Street recipe) and I'm convinced that coconut milk ingredient dishes are a perfect match to Riesling. — 5 months ago
