Wine: Red Oak Vineyard Riesling
Price: $19.99
Vintage: 2013
Varietals: 100% Riesling; (12.8% ABV)
Virginia Pour House Notes:
Built on a backbone of crisp apple and pear aromas showing off zesty citrus undertones followed by crisp delicious apple flavors up front with puckering tartness from front to mid-palate while going the distance with light notes of lime and a crisp minerality and finishing with more ripe fruit and mineral notes in an off dry manner. The finish really shows off the tart lime qualities that were shown early on, but are subtle towards the back palate. Overall, a decent Riesling, but could use some time to settle that tart quality.

Virginia Pour House Overall Rating

This years Finger Lake Wine Alliance Riesling Launch, we were able to sample Dry Rieslings from Fox Run, Lamoreaux Landing, and Bellangelo from the Finger Lakes AVA. While it wasn't our favorite vintage of Rieslings, they were still good and offered a unique opportunity to keep tabs on our Finger Lakes winemakers' latest offerings.

Out of Town: A Day Exploring Temecula’s Wine Country

Last year, I finally took advantage of the opportunity to visit Temecula’s Wine Country.
