Poet's Leap Riesling 2011 - Wine & Spirits

 "Sinewy and elegant, with a tangy citrus scent and a hint of peppercorn, this feels finely knit and pure. The flavors lengthen after a day open and bring to bear a juicy, mouthwatering briskness, with a minerality that suggests a long, thrilling life in the cellar."

Poet's Leap Riesling 2011 - Wine Enthusiast - Editor's Choice

 "This shows lively acidity, with riipe but tart fruit and an alcohol level just slightly above 12%. The grapes used were sourced from The Benches (German clones) annd old vine plantings at Dionysus. It's a lush Poet's Leap, lightly tasting of honey, and loaded with pretty flavors of Meyer lemon, ripe orange, and candied pineapple."
