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. — 19 days ago

Honey, gardenia and peach nose. Slightly sweet, high acid, somewhat viscous palate due to sugar. Manages to maintain balance with some minerality/salinity. Ripe and refreshing at the same time. — 19 days ago
Very, very nice and crisp - excellent. — 18 days ago
Lots of flavor, green pepper, sharp acidity. Overpowered our food a bit but enjoyable to drink on its own. — 12 days ago
