The 2013 Finger Lakes Riesling Release Launch | Fox Run, Lamoreaux Landing, & Bellangelo; How do they fare?

Producer: Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars Region: Finger Lakes AVA, New York, United States 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.

Quick Pour: Sunset Hills Winery Petit Verdot 2011

Producer: Sunset Hills Winery Region: Middleburg AVA, Northern Virginia, Virginia Price: N/A; Club Only Vintage: 2011 Varietals: 90% Petit Verdot. 10% Merlot Winemaker Notes: In many ways, Petit Verdot was a savior of the 2011 red harvest.  While the heavy rains of the season made it difficult for most reds to ripen as fully as we’d prefer, Petit Verdot, which is naturally quick to ripen very fully, made it through the rains with style.  Additionally, with its small, tough berries and heavy pigment, what was not used in this varietal blend became a very important blending piece for our other 2011 red wines.  The best Petit Verdot of the season, however, was saved for this blend.  We don’t always make a varietal Petit Verdot, but when the quality is high enough, and when the wine is interesting enough, we’re excited to bottle it.  The 2011 is no exception to the characteristics we’re coming …
