Reserve Dry Riesling 2012

Truly the star of the entire day. I legit got tears in my eyes because this Riesling was so beautiful. Bruised yellow apple, singed lemon peel, ginger, wilting jasmine, thyme, petrol, and a tiny bit of peach are woven together by juicy acidity and a lush mouthfeel. Aromatic, mineral, complex, and balanced. I got a bottle to bring home, obviously. — 6 days ago

Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2017

I do not understand how this is less than $20. It is insane. Benchmark FLX dry Riesling. — 6 days ago

Finger Lakes Rkatsiteli 2017

When our friend handed this to me and mentioned “Finger Lakes” I assumed Riesling. It wasn’t until I tasted the remnants two days later that I realized it was Rkatsiteli. Nicely done. 👍 — 7 hours ago

No. 239 Finger Lakes Single Vineyard Dry Riesling 2016

Very good balance of fruit and acidity. Apple, pear, lychee and slate on the nose. Apples and pears on the pallet. Just a hint of RS but relatively dry. Good quality FLX Riesling. — 10 days ago

Finger Lakes Dry Rose Blend 2018

Nose has mashed strawberry/banana and cut red delicious apple.

Palate has sweet, but dry, strawberry, banana peel, under-ripe red currant and light green herb notes.

An interesting rose that I was able to get some more information about on my visit to the BB winery last Fall. The wine is 100% DeChaunac, a more common varietal for colder climates, like Ontario. The third vintage on this wine, fruit is sourced locally from Sheldrake Point.

This wine still wins the prize for about the darkest color of any rosé in our cellar. Light ruby, like a flawless stone you can see right through.

North Fork Chardonnay 2016

Big surprise here. A burst of energy on the nose and palate. Doesn’t taste like a pure chard. I wonder if it’s blended with Viognier. Exotic presentation which generates a small explosion of guava and hints of peach. A little too much acid, but otherwise well done. East coast on the map! — 5 days ago

I need to learn to like Chardonnay again. I rarely order white wine unless it’s a German riesling or something

Finger Lakes Dry Gewürztraminer 2006

As I said, I hate Gewurz but I just can’t deny that this is a good wine. With 13 years of age, it becomes even better. Like kind of insanely good. I don’t even know myself anymore. — 6 days ago

Noble Select Josef Vineyard Riesling 2013

I love when you can really taste the botrytis! A really incredible dessert wine. So much acidity lifting it up. Exceptional wine. — 6 days ago

Bloomer Creek Vineyard

White Horse Red Blend 2015

Really interesting. Low alcohol-12.5%-quite tannic so has some legs to age, or benefits from a robust decant ( which we didn’t do). On nose plenty of wild raspberry, palate is somewhere between an old school Bordeaux & Saumur red( blend is 70% cab franc & 30% merlot), along with serious tannic structure. Serious natural winemakers too. — 16 days ago
