Finger Lakes Semi-Dry Riesling 2018

Given to me by friends, this is an amazing US Riesling. It does not have the typical petrol nose and taste of a German Riesling but every other characteristic is there and delectable! — 9 days ago

Not too sweet, not too dry. I would like a little sweeter but my wife thought it was too sweet — 4 months ago

Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2017

Don’t sleep on the Finger Lakes region. Some seriously undervalued wines coming out of the area. Find this and enjoy with Pork Ramen. — 3 months ago

Margrit Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2014

Nose has washed lime, dried pineapple, wet river pebbles, citrus blossom, neutral oak barrel and dried Clementine peel.

Palate has candied lemon, grapefruit pith, dry clay-based soil, tangerine juice and moist gravel (crusher-run). Quite round on the palate, rich and enjoyable. Finish runs under a minute. Decanted +60m.

Likely a good life for this bottle, easily held in proper storage until 2028+.

Purchased at the winery in Nov. 2016, $31.

This Riesling is from estate plantings (2008) on Seneca Lake.

Day 4 Update: Nose has dried Clementine peel, cut lemon, chalk and under-ripe peach. Palate has ripe peach, orange zest and tart orange minus the citric acid. Quite fun, it's really drinking great now. Moving from 9.1 to 9.2.

@Delectable Wine Would you please drop the 'Finger Lakes' language out of the wine name please? That info is already listed in the more detailed location information, thanks.

Finger Lakes Cabernet Franc 2015

Didn’t expect to like this so much. Medium body, soft tannins. We like drier, but in spite of that liked the taste of this. Good for “porch sipping” or with food, but definitely prefer a bolder wine with beef. — 4 months ago

Finger Lakes Gewürztraminer 2018

Lean and crisp version of this varietal. Floral perfume (but lightly so) on the nose. Lychee, pear and apple flavors. Hints of orange, minerals and white pepper. Nice balance. — 2 months ago

Eugenia Dry Riesling 2014

Pale straw color in the glass.

Nose has fresh lime pith, warmed peach, peppermint candy, recently crushed slate, tart green apple peel, (light) petrol and citrus blossom.

Palate has crushed limestone, slate powder, orange pith, under-ripe peach, warmed green apple and slight pineapple core. Quite dry on the finish, runs a full minute plus, fun salty traits. Decanted +60m.

Likely a long life for this bottle, easily held in proper storage until 2030+.

Purchased at the winery in Nov. 2016, $27.

Winery Note:
This Riesling is made with grapes grown in “block 3”, the oldest (1968 plantings), steepest and most shale-laden section of the winery’s estate vineyard on Keuka Lake.

Day 4 Update: Nose has dried lemon peel, cut peach and dried pineapple, sweetened. Palate has fresh cut orange, fresh pineapple and a mild chalky finish. Fun evolution.

Salmon Run Finger Lakes Petit Noir 2017

I love this. Vintage 2017. I’d call it soft, yet with a little bite at the end. Very 👍 — 3 months ago
