    August 5, 2017 - light-yellowish slate color. nose strongly waxy, almost like sniffing a crayon; slight honey, bright. Palate with slight sweetness, slight minerality, golden apple, tastes like drinking bright sunshine. opens up more and gains more depth with time in the glass. enjoyable, 89 pts

    July 23, 2017 - One of NY's finest riesling producers. If you haven't discovered Ravines yet, you haven't realized the potential of the Finger Lakes. Nose of wet slate, chalk. Acidity makes it a perfect match with foods, cheeses.

    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.
