With little fanfare….

…we release our 2012 Riesling this afternoon.  Well, when I am done with the day job and get over and put some wine on the shelves.

The wine?  Compared to the 2011 the 2012 is much more open and approachable now, especially with just a tiny bit of decanting before enjoyment.  Lovely texture, richness and exotic qualities in 2012, with a hedonistic, fresh peach, ripe apricot nose that kind of sticks to your sniffer.  Perhaps more exotic than some are used to, fennel appears with a bit of air,  but from what I have seen this is very much the 2012 vintage in some respects.  Let us know your thoughts if you have a minute….

A heads-up.  We will have about 150 cs to sell at the winery this year, slightly less than last year.  The downside of spreading the word of the Finger Lakes wine scene to other states is that you have to send them the wine.   Don’t they realize this cuts into our local “stash”!   As always, if you want us to put aside some wine for you to pick-up next time your in the area we are always happy to do so.  Membership has it’s privileges…..

Here is to good livin’,
