Finger Lakes Extra Dry Riesling 2017

Superb balance as even though it’s dry it has lots of body and mouthfeel. Lots of Riesling character. The only weak area imho is that it finishes a bit harsh and does not linger. But another really fantastic wine from this top producer. — 6 days 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.

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.

Sunrise Hill Vineyards Gewürztraminer 2015

Wow. I’m kinda blown away here. This stuff is awesome. Tastes like it’s straight out of Europe. One of the best American gewurz I’ve had. Slightly viscous. Pears, baking spice, maybe a touch of melon. Finishes w some tobacco notes. And nutmeg. Only 147 cars so it’s made w love and care. Wish I had more. — 16 days ago

Bloomer Creek Vineyard

Tanzen Dame Riesling 2014

This has greatly improved over the past 3 years in bottle. On the nose, funky overripe pears, fresh apple cider and petrol. In the mouth... all kinds of weirdness...in a good way. Pear, wet rock, forest shrubs after a rain (we called them “mountain misery” when I grew up - I don’t know what they are really called). High acid, long finish. This producer is one of the most interesting in the US. — 10 days ago
