Red Tail Ridge 2012 Sticky Riesling (Finger Lakes)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $50

Despite a growing number of quality sweet-style Rieslings from the Finger Lakes, this one stands out amongst its peers. It’s gorgeously complex, with layers of pollen and saffron accenting deep, concentrated flavors of mango, orange and peach. Searing lemon acidity drives the midpalate towards a long finish that’s peppered with dusty mineral notes. Delicious now…

Standing Stone 2008 Vidal Ice Vidal Blanc (Finger Lakes)

  1. $25

Just a whiff of this deep gold Vidal Blanc reveals layers of smoke melded with honey and fresh apples. The palate is deeply complex with flavors that include pretty florals, rich pineapple, citrus and a compelling smoked nut skin note. The super-long finish is marked by zippy acidity and a lovely astringency.

Hermann J. Wiemer 2012 Magdalena Vineyard Dry Estate Bottled and Grown Riesling (Seneca Lake)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $36

It invigorates the senses with concentrated lemon and lime flavors tinged with minerals, tart stone fruits and blossoms. It’s dry in style with a bold, mouth-filling palate, but gorgeously elegant. Finishes long with a ripple of lime-zest astringency.

Shaw 2012 Road Block Reserve Riesling (Finger Lakes)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $25

Demure in stature yet brooding with power, this late-release 2012 Riesling is compelling evidence of winemaker Steve Shaw’s soft-spoken dynamism. Semidry in style, it’s light as a feather, yet richly layered with shades of grapefruit, spice and smoke. While delicious now, it’s rigidly structured still, and likely to continue to improve for many years to come.

Shaw 2009 Reserve Pinot Noir (Finger Lakes)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $30

This concentrated Pinot Noir calibrates power with finesse, juxtaposing rippling black cherry and berry flavors against complex mineral and earth tones. It’s luscious and layered in mouthfeel, enriched over four years of extended lees contact. While decadently delicious now, it has enough structure to age elegantly through 2019–2021.

Sheldrake Point 2014 Wild Ferment Ice Wine Riesling (Finger Lakes)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $100

Fermented unintentionally by ambient, rather than inoculated yeasts, this serendipitous wild-ferment ice wine is a fascinating treat. While the nose is touched with hints of saffron and pressed apples, the fresh melon and pineapple flavors are pure and pristine. Remarkably complex, it balances rich honey tones against elegant streaks of acidity, spice and minerals.

Boundary Breaks 2012 Single Clone No. 239 Riesling (Finger Lakes)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $20

Boundary Breaks has proven to be the break-out producer of the Finger Lakes this year with an excellent line up of wines, and this off-dry wine is amongst its best. Elegantly perfumed with notes of fresh green florals and herbs, it builds in power and expression on the palate with pristine white peach flavors pierced with lime acidity and a reverberating mineral finish.

Boundary Breaks 2012 Single Vineyard Single Clone No. 90 Late Harvest Riesling (Finger Lakes)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $30

Intensely tropical on the nose with notes of honey-glazed mango and peach, this silky sweet wine is stunningly complex yet unabashedly tasty. The palate is unctuous with layers of rich marmalade cut with bright acidity and sprays of blossom and tea leaf that linger endlessly on the finish.
