2012 Longshadows "Poet's Leap" Riesling 375mL

Wine Enthusiast 94pts: "Half of this year's Poet's Leap Riesling is sourced from The Benches, one quarter from old vine plantings at Dionysus, and the rest from Yakima's Phil Church vineyard. Marvelous concentration and a panoply of lush orange, apricot, peach and papaya flavors carry this beautifully balanced wine through a long and satisfying finish. Delicious young, it could also be cellared for a decade or longer. Editors' Choice."


Wine & Spirits Magazine 92pts: "Youthful and full of energy, this impressive Washington riesling smells drier than it is, with its limeade and passion fruit aromas. It's actually slightly heavier and richer than that, the fleshy flavors suggesting a pairing with something spicy, like a plate of larb, a Thai salad of spiced meat."

Winemaker's Notes: "With wonderful brightness and purity of flavor, the 2012 Poet's Leap is a vibrant, refined wine showing impeccable balance. Layers of minerality, white flowers, dried apricots, refreshing citrus and a hint of honey provide complexity that lingers across the wine's clean finish."
