    August 17, 2015 - Starting to show its maturity with a touch of the petrol that comes out in good Rieslings. Good food wine, nice crisp fruit, some minerality, good acid balance.

    July 9, 2015 - Tasted against 4 other Rieslings from around the world. I didn't like this one a bit, I thought it was flawed. It was funky, flat, wierdly green and funky brown. I still say it was off. Others didn't think the wine was flawed. It finished last.

    June 21, 2015 - This wine surprised me. It was just about as good at this level as many German made reselling wines. It was light yellow in color. I tasted of pear and grapefruit and had that nice dieseling semi-bitter taste. it lasted all weekend in an opened bottle in the fridge with little loss of fruit. Based on this tasting, I would not hesitate to buy another NY wine again.

    December 14, 2014 - This wine continues to show quite well. Served on the cold side of chilled and showed a very aromatic nose and great fruit-acidity balance. The acidity is still strong, but has blended into the body of the wine a bit more, resulting in a more complete bottle. Fruit retained its brightness and complexity and finished strong. Certainly has the qualities to last. Very well done Finger Lakes dry riesling.
