Popped and poured. Drank in a large line-up of wines so no formal notes. What I can say with certainty is that this is a strong follow-up to the 2017 vintage which was an absolute fire-cracker and one of the best Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blends I've had from the New World. The 2018 seems to have slightly more subdued fruit but the same racy acidity and minerality which is what make the Alder Grove SB's so exciting anyway. A wine to drink now although they won't go bad anytime soon. I intent to grab more. — 9 days ago
This is a nice Riesling from the Finger Lakes.
Semi sweet on the palate with citrus, honeydew, yellow apples, spices, tropical fruits and pineapples.
A touch of diesel on the nose, too.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.
Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.
12% alcohol by volume.

Covid19 special wine for dining in. This well-made 2005 has evolved perfectly... balanced tannins and oak, cassis, still plenty of fruit. Depending on how prefer your Cabernet, could use 2-4 year more in bottle for further tertiary flavor development. — 19 days ago
Popped and poured. Drank in a large line up of great wines so no formal notes but this was really good. The 2014 is more red fruited than usual and carries a light touch of Brettanomyces which is somewhat more typical in their Zinfandel. If memory serves me correctly, this vintage was delicious and easy to drink on release. That being said, I am happy to report that it's aging gracefully. I have one remaining bottle that I am in no particular rush to drink. — 9 days ago
