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.

Rosemary Farm X Oberle's Florist Still Cider 2018

Very vinous, this one. Completely dry. An excellent cider. Wild apples rasterized. They do not grow these apples, they gather them from disused sites in Long Island. It’s a very cool project, but the cider that comes out of it is better than any I’ve had. I tend not to like cider, but again, this is the most vinous cider I’ve had. This bottle has a light effervescence, which these don’t usually have, usually they’re fermented totally dry and fermentation is complete and still. Could be this had a touch of rs on bottling, but it was totally dry upon opening. A fine effervescence that ends with an iodine note and some tongue coating tannins, some galangal, mint, and cinnamon verum, which are also on the nose, with lemon oil and raw sourdough. Some white cherries and neroli flavors on the tongue, and good acid, lift, and fine tannins that keep you coming back for more. This is excellent cider, full stop.

@Chris Shultz Thank you for the support; it’s people like you who give us the hunger and focus to go out on a limb, so to speak, to make something out of nothing. Grateful and humbled that it was tasting focused.

@Erik Longabardi i thought I remembered benford telling me to wait a bit on this one. This was as long as I could wait.

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. — 9 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.

Ravines Wine Cellars

Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2017

Well made, refreshing. Very reduced upon opening, lots of smoke. I put it away for a day. I was thirsty and drank it pretty quickly. It had a lot of smoke, ripe as hell orchard fruits, really tingly good minerals, a touch of residual sugar or apparent sweetness. — 18 days ago
