An Alsatian-style Riesling, this dry, firm wine has aromas of peach and citrus. Minerality backs the mouthfeel, while flavors of orange, melon, spice and peach pit play on the tongue. Strong acids and a long, minerally finish suggest that this wine will age gracefully over the next five years or more.
Ripe, succulent peach and melon flavors mark this dry but lusciously textured Sauvignon Blanc. Crisp and minerally, yet juicy and thirst quenching, this has so much dimension in each sip. It finishes quite floral, with just a touch of lime-pith astringency.
One whiff reveals billowing scents of purple flower, fresh apple, lemon peel and sea salt. Bone dry yet penetrating with flavors of lime skin, green apple and fresh herbs, this is a lush, textural Riesling with outstanding complexity. It finishes steely and crisp —a perfect pairing with fatty hamachi or salmon sashimi.
If you’re looking for a truly bone-dry Riesling from the Finger Lakes, look no further than Ravines. It’s uncharacteristically austere for the region, with a lean, light body and a mineral laden, wet-stone palate. Lots of freshly squeezed lime juice and a citrus rind finish makes this an elegant, drinkable choice.
A ripe bramble-wood note and dusty minerality add shades of complexity to this ripe, richly concentrated Cabernet Franc. Dry and full bodied, with lush, ripe tannins, it finishes with a deliciously spicy cherry-vanilla note.
Whispers of charred wood, ripe bramble and earth add an elegant rusticity to this Pinot Noir’s subtle black-cherry flavor. This is delicately structured, with bright, brisk acidity and a hint of dried mushroom that linger on the palate.
Understated on the nose, with hints of fresh strawberries and raspberries, this bone-dry rosé is quite penetrating on the palate, with a deep red-fruit flavor and a vein of crushed-stone minerality.
This is an exemplary SB from the Finger Lakes, with its lively nose of lemon and minerals touched by an elegant floral note. On the palate, robust, crisp citrus and fruit flavors are balanced by firm acidity and a refreshing but lingering finish.
