Waxy lemon peel and white blossom notes penetrate the nose and palate of this concentrated and structured Riesling. Bold acidity adds a cutting edge to the midpalate before finishing on a zesty lime note.
Broody and beautiful, the nose on this wine offers plum, clove and cedar spice. Its juicy, mouthfilling flavors of blackberry, leather and spice are backed by a good tannic structure and overall, the wine is a winner.
The Lucas 2007 Limited Reserve Syrah shows the potential the Syrah grape has in upstate New York. Dense raspberry and strawberry fruit vie with aromas of barbecued meat on the nose while a thick layer of vanilla cushions the fine tannins and smokey notes in the mouth. The juicy finish throws up an enticing licorice note. Nicely done. Drink now to 2011.
Rich and honeyed on the nose and palate, this is chock-full of superripe tropical fruit notes, spiked with hints of white truffle, black tea and sweet brioche. It’s an interesting mélange of yumminess, but there’s just a hint of something chemical on the nose and palate that distracts.
Slightly floral on the nose, with some pear and nectarine as well, this light-bodied wine blends sweet stone-fruit flavors with tart green apples on the palate, giving it a degree of balance.
This white has a light, delicate nose of citrus and apricot. On the palate it’s smooth and balanced with lush apricot and spice flavors. A touch of acidity gives the wine lift. A lingering finish adds to its poise. Pair with a creamy cheese or sip alone.
Freshly scented of apple and yellow peaches, this fairly dry Riesling gains softness from a sweet white grapefruit juice note. Brisk with a lemon pith astringency and notes of slate and chalk that linger through a clean, minerally finish.
Aromatic with notes of white peach, florals and just a whiff of petrol, this is fairly dry in style but softened by a gentle grapefruit and limeade sweetness. Finish clean with a refreshing stone and slate note.
