Tanzen Dame Blue Cap Trocken Edelzwicker Riesling 2016

If you can’t handle a touch of brett, avoid this. But for those who can...here’s a wild sour ale, trapped in a bottle of Riesling- heavy Edelzwicker. The nose is pure, pretty, floral Riesling, and the sour/spicy thing kicks in on the palate in a masterful and balanced way that gives the impression of being a studied, deliberate choice in the cellar. The brett carries through into the long, savory finish in a thirst-quenching manner (again, much like sour ale). This wine demands all your attention, so don’t pull it out for casual quaffing, chill it too hard or serve it in anything less than great glassware. Another singular and challenging wine from the most interesting growers in the FLX. — 3 days ago

Reserve Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2016

Wonderful FLX Riesling! Big apple/pear fruit that almost seems sweet at first. But then the acidity takes over and balances the wine beautifully. Hint of petrol. Very Germanic and extremely well made. EE is an extremely underrated FLX producer. — 20 days ago

Bubbly No. 356 Dry Riesling

A really fun wine. Carbonation added, but makes a very pleasant bubbly to enjoy with friends and food. But behind the fun is a pretty decent finger lakes Riesling . — 8 days ago

Margrit Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2014

Really good! Top 5 Finger Lakes producer.

Wine was clear with a yellowish hue. A nice tartness with an ever so subtle sweet element. Very complex and nice finish. I really enjoyed this!

Silver Thread

Good Earth White Blend 2017

Very enjoyable blend. Can taste the Riesling and gewurz, the Vidal being filler. A nice simple wine to enjoy with different foods. In this case the wine is not the issue as it easily drinks with food. — 13 days ago

Finger Lakes Cabernet Franc

Drank with Kody at Little Club. Pretty sure it was this one. Could have bloomer creek? First cab franc that I’ve tried that I love. Herbaceous but a lot of violet. The florals overpower the bell pepper. Light bodied but purple crispy in color. — 7 days ago
