Poet's Leap 2009 - Wine Enthusiast - #7 of "Top 100 Wines of 2010"

"Hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed, this immaculate, fresh, generous and stylish Riesling is always at the top of Washington's best. Loaded with grapefruit, citrus and stone flavors, it cleans the palate and piles on the details as it rolls into a finish that lingers well over a full minute."

Poet's Leap 2009 - Wine Advocate

"Light straw-colored with an alluring perfume of flint, spring flowers, white peach, and melon. Made in a Kabinett stlye (1.35 grams of residual sugar), on the palate it is crisp, vibrant, intense, and impeccably balanced."

Poet's Leap 2009 - Connoisseurs' Guide

 "Its tantalizing glimpses of fresh pears, green peaches, and a certain stony complexity tag it as a very serious wine. Near-perfect acidity serves as a counterpoint to its modest subars, and its overall balance is ideal."
