Bright minerality and mouth-watering acidity; exactly what I want out of a Riesling. The nose shows crisp pear, lime zest, crushed rock, and plastic pool toy. The mid-palate and finish are like lightning. This isn’t going to change your life and peel back layers of complexity, but this demonstrates how extremely clean and refreshing cool climate Riesling can be. — 17 days ago
Really interesting how almost colorless this looked. Crisp and delicious, great acidity. Very much recommendable. — 8 days ago
I’m old enough to remember when Bordeaux wasn’t a Parkerized delivery system for skullbusting levels of alcohol. This reminds me of a charming, “luncheon claret”-type Right Bank thing that used to be the mainstay of good stores and restaurant wine lists: cranberry, raspberry, a touch of Cab Franc sap and herbs. The world needs more truly medium-bodied reds like this. — 17 days ago
This wine gets a perfect rating not only for it's flavors and complexity, but also because I was standing in the vineyard it was grown in, with the winemaker who made it, while I drank it...sometimes the sensory experience is what makes the wine taste the best! Will always been a favorite memory. — 7 days ago
Yummy, sweet but not over powering. Light and refreshing, good for bubble baths. — 4 days ago
Gorgeous bone dry Riesling from, in my opinion, the best wine producer in the Finger Lakes. The wine is driven by its stony minerality, acid and fresh herbs, but the fruit develops on nicely on the palate with crisp Granny Smith apple and citrus. Precise, linear and austere wine that comes the best Riesling vineyard in the Finger Lakes, the limestone heavy Argetsinger Vineyard. My favorite example of a Finger Lakes Riesling. — 19 days ago
Blend of Noiret & Cabernet Franc.
Nose has mashed ripe cherry, but mostly dominated by dusty-chalky red fruits.
Palate has cherry, fresh plum, peppery forest floor with medium tannins.
The wine continues to evolve with air, the longer it's open the more the CF aspects start showing prominence in the blend. Nice effort for a sub $15 bottle. — 21 days ago
A lovely wine from a small finger lakes winery. Made with care. — 4 days ago
