Poet's Leap 2008 - Wine Enthusiast - #8 of "Top 100 Wines of 2009"

 "The Poet's Leap Riesling continues its string of outstanding vintages, once again exceptionally concentrated and complex. The high-acid 2008 vintage adds extra juice vibrancy to the fruit, giving the wine an impression of dryness and dense, layered fruit component. A mix of old vine and German clones, this is a superb effort."

Poet's Leap 2008 - Wine & Spirits

"The style is plush, with citrus accents and hints of lees, and a texture that feels broad and immensely satisfying. The balance never falters, as if on guide wires; it's fine, poised for grilled char."

Poet's Leap 2008 Ice Wine - Wine Enthusiast

POET'S LEAP ICE WINE

"Incredibly complex with it's early aromas of honey, candle wax, marzipan, ripe peaches and a slightly idiosyncratic suggestion of pumpkin pie. Every bit as generous endowed in the mouth, from its peach essence and it toasted almond flavors to its viscous, syrupy palatal weight, this wine isi a tour de force that demands drinking up on its own in quiet contemplation."
