Red Tail Ridge Winery

Sticky Riesling 2012

BA-level sweetness. Heavily botrytised. Orange peel, baking spice, caramelized honey; super acidity and plenty long and complex. If you told me this was von Simmern or Statsweingut Rheingau, I’d believe it. #redtailridge #flxriesling #botrytis — 3 years ago

White Springs Vineyard Dry Riesling 2015

One of our favourite wineries in the Finger Lakes. Great structure and mineral backbone. More fruit as it warms up in the glass. Great food wine. #flxriesling #ravineswinery #flxwine — 4 years ago

Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2013

Limestony minerality and playful acidity. Perfect for a chilly fall afternoon. #flxriesling — 6 years 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 years ago

Finger Lakes Riesling

Went down way too easy. Nothing overly complicated, and not the best we had in the Finger Lakes but on a hot sunny day was just what we needed. #flxriesling #flxwine — 4 years ago

Bloomer Creek Vineyard

Tanzen Dame Barrow Vineyard Reserve Dry Riesling 2015

So this is my wine of year, 2018. On sight: a distressing shade of brown, with obvious floaters and heavy sediment. However, all that follows is trompe a l’oeil of the highest order, with oxidative elements suffused with freshness and reductive elements that express themselves in layers of complexity rather than primordial stink. Intense aromas and flavors of poached pear, star anise, porcini broth and white tea rise and fade within a frame of RS somewhere between trocken and feinherb. On the palate: ethereal texture, presence and length, with a weight reminiscent of some of Julien Meyer’s best Rieslings: simultaneously commanding and feathery. There are no primary or obvious elements of classic Riesling, yet you know it’s Riesling because no other grape could be a vehicle for this kind of brilliance. Just the barest hint of Manzanilla and sea salt on the complex finish. I really don’t know much about this winery, but I’ve never had anything from them that’s less than incredible. I’d place this next to ‘78 Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet, ‘82 DRC Montrachet, ‘59 Huet Vouvray Haut-Lieu and ‘76 JJ Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese in my “greatest whites” list. It IS that good, and I’ve been trying to talk myself out of that thought since April, when I consumed it from a paper cup in a hotel room. #bloomercreek #flxriesling — 3 years ago


A&D Vineyard Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2013

Straw yellow color. Getting key lime with cream on the nose....super odd but cool at the same time. Zingy, citrus-like acidity with loads of minerality. Not my favorite style of Riesling but is intriguing nonetheless. #flxriesling — 5 years ago
