There is much debate in the Finger Lakes region about who makes the best Riesling. Is it grown in the Finger Lakes or in Germany? In this video Leah and David compare the 2015 dry riesling from Dr. Loosen of Germany to the 2015 dry riesling from Dr. Konstantin Frank of the Finger Lakes. Who will come out on top?

Finger Lakes Wine Company 2015 Semi Dry Riesling

April 22, 2018

From the moment you look at the creative and well-designed label, to tasting this pale colored wine, you will be happy with your decision. It is in the middle of being sweet and dry, something that should appease most people. The palate is bright with grapefruit, honeysuckle, lemon and mineral components, all that you would want in this varietal. The price is right in the middle, not bargain and not stuffy. Try this bottle for a weeknight meal at home or a low key weekend meal as you will not be disappointed.

Just a short video to wish everyone a Happy Easter! Leah and I had a delicious rib roast with a 2003 Chateau LaGrange from St. Julien in Bordeaux. A very delicate nose and descent palate of green vegetables, blue berries and cassis. A lot of tannin for a wine thats pushing 15 years old.
