2005 Poet's Leap
 

Poet's Leap 2005 - Wine Enthusiast - #13 of "Top 100 Wines of 2009"

"Old-vine Riesling from Dionysus and Weinbau form the core of the wine, which is immaculate, rich, and benerous. The fruits sound like a country fair in summer - melon, stone fruits, citrus, honey - and the mix of residual sugar and racy acids is thrillingly on target."

Poet's Leap 2005 - Wine & Spirits

 "This bottling almost resembles Pinot Gris at first pass, its wheaty scents mingling with a heady aroma of white peach: those peach flavors explode on the palate, a seductive intensity that's held in check with a thrilling line of acidity."

Poet's Leap 2005 - Wine Advocate

 "This splendid Riesling is light straw-colored with green highlights. It delivers a complex perfume of slate, mineral, a hint of petrol, spring flowers, honey, and green apple."
