Long Shadows Poet's Leap Riesling

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"

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"

2015 Long Shadows Poet's Leap Riesling - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"The terrific 2015 Riesling Poet’s Leap has 1.2% residual sugar, which is barely noticeable. Juicy, vibrant notes of green apple, citrus and lychee all emerge from this medium-bodied, fresh, clean, deliciously refreshing white that will be incredibly versatile on the dinner table. It will also age gracefully for a decade or more. - Jeb Dunnuck"
