2018 Long Shadows Poet's Leap Riesling - 91 PTS - Editors' Choice - WE

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Vibrant aromas of pear, flowers, Meyer lemon and herb are followed by off-dry drinking, medium-bodied Nestea iced tea flavors. Vibrant acidity backs it up, heightening the interest. It's delicious, but give it some time to open up. SEAN P. SULLIVAN"

2018 Long Shadows Poet's Leap Riesling - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Subtle stone fruits, orange zest and ginger on the bracing nose, plus a trace of medicinal herbs. Shows a distinct sweetness on entry, then the firm acidity and spiciness take over in the middle palate, enlivening the very pure stone fruit and ripe citrus flavors. This is sappy, ripe and delicious right now but has the stuffing to gain in complexity with bottle age. - Stephen Tanzer"

2017 Long Shadows Poet's Leap Riesling - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(Pale, bright yellow. Intriguing aromas of Cranapple, lime, ginger and botanical herbs. Broad, spicy and energetic on the palate, showing a brisk touch of orange zest. The tactile, dusty back end displays sneaky rising length and subtle fruit-and-spice complexity. A very good vintage for this bottling. (12.5% alcohol) - Stephen Tanzer"

2017 Long Shadows Poet's Leap Riesling - 91 PTS - Editors' Choice - WE

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Generous aromas of lime leaf, citrus, wet slate and white peach lead to off-dry stone-fruit and citrus flavors that stretch out on the palate. It brings a beautiful sense of acid balance with an impressively long finish. Give it some additional time in bottle to see it at its best."

2016 Long Shadows Poet's Leap Riesling - 92 PTS - WA

wa92"The 2016 Riesling Poet's Leap is very pretty, offering up aromas of lime, lemon oil, white flowers and very subtle petrol that wouldn't be out of place in the Mosel. On the palate, it's light to medium-bodied, racy and mouthwatering, with lovely intensity and purity, concluding with a stony finish. It's a beautiful wine and carries a very modest price tag. - William Kelley"

2016 Long Shadows Poet's Leap Riesling - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(12.5% alcohol): Very pale straw-green. Aromas and flavors of orange zest, peach, ginger and five-spice powder. Offers good body and purity, with a touch of sweetness buffered by ripe acidity and just enough minerality to maintain its shape. Finishes with good spicy persistence, an intriguing element of salinity and a late note of lime blossom.- Stephen Tanzer"
