Reserve Dry Riesling 2017

A very easy drinking Riesling with nice acidity, modest fragrance and flavor and delightfully dry. Need to try more wines from NY state. — 13 days ago

Estate Grown Dry Riesling 2017

Always a notch above the pack of FLX dry Rieslings. Good concentration, fine texture and some complexity. Seamless and perfectly balanced, with essential Riesling fruitiness unmarred by reduction or by the crude, dark minerality that shale-heavy vineyards can sometimes convey. #flxriesling #wiemer — 3 months ago

HJW Vineyard Dry Riesling 2017

Stunning example of what 40 year old vines can do in the Finger Lakes. Awesome fruit, incredibly floral and wonderful acid balance with citrus, white peach, melon, honey and rose petal. Very ripe fruit fermented dry.
Part of the vineyard is biodynamic. Gorgeous with a long life ahead (but who can resist it now?)

Josef Vineyard Riesling 2015

Interesting Single Vineyard Riesling from one of the best FLX producers. Yes, there is residual sugar, but it is balanced by crisp acidity. Pears, grapefruit and a hint of slate and petrol. A taste of vanilla wafers on the finish. I prefer a dry Riesling, but this little “sweetie” is quite delicious. Great as a dessert wine or with hot and spicy food. — 22 days ago

Cross J Vineyard Norton 2013

Today started with a ~13hr drive to the southwest Chicago suburbs for the Christmas holiday, perfect driving weather and minimal traffic. My father-in-law decanted this for a couple hours in advance of our arrival. They really enjoy Missouri wines, this Norton is always special. I was smitten after we were lucky to enjoy a bottle from '83 that was in perfect condition, just a few years back.

Nose has plum juice, plum skin, raspberry juice and a light, sweet herbal note.
Palate has plum juice, black cherry compote, tanned leather and gentle tannins.
Lovely bottle, likely 10 years yet to go.

@Ryan Vento Here's the last bottle I had, and my only one posted in Delectable. They transitioned to labeling as single vineyard now, and it's under Stelvin, so I'm not sure if the style is changing for shorter term enjoyment. Stone Hill is doing a 10-year vertical dinner at the winery in April (2019), but sold out now. We had contemplated flying into STL and driving West but work life caught up with me and can no longer spare the time away.

That is very neat. Thanks for letting me in on this. I don’t think the selection I had this evening could stand the test of time; alas, a 10-year vertical dinner would be really neat.
