Still a little tight, with lime and quinine notes holding the core of apple, pear and slate at bay for now. Offers solid depth on the finish. Just needs to open up a little with brief cellaring. Drink now through 2011.

Our customers who have friended us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter already know the high opinion our Wine Associates have of Damiani wines, as evidenced by the multitude of posts and tweets before their arrival. As with many Seneca Lake wineries, their lineup offers world class wines from our own back yard and (when compared with delicious wines from other cool climate regions) great value. Our first order of business upon expanding our New York wall was to get these wines for our customers, who embraced them with open arms at our first Tasting Center event! Damiani's 2009 Riesling was my favorite, offering bracing acidic structure and intense fruit balanced perfectly in a semi-dry Riesling. Aromatic and flavorful, offering generous flavors of Empire apples with a touch of sweetness and a lasting, mouthwatering finish for which Finger Lakes wines have become noted!

When I sit down to taste a flight of top Finger Lakes Riesling with the New York Cork Report editorial staff, I know they're all going to be solid. I don't expect one to stand out; after all, Finger Lakes Riesling is Finger Lakes Riesling, right? Wrong. In a flight of some of the best bottlings released in 2010, this stunning example from off-the-beaten-track Damiani wowed every single one of us to immediately declare a unanimous vote for 2010 Riesling of the Year. Made in a horrendous vintage characterized by cold, wet weather and a short growing season -- a vintage typically described across New York as "a winemaker's vintage," "challenging," or simply "a nightmare" -- this is simply the best wine Damiani could have made, and it's delicious. Yes, there's searing acidity thanks to the cool season, but it's just the skeleton for a lush, peach-and-apricots flavor profile with a remarkably well-hidden 4% residual sugar to flesh it out. Stuffed like a fruit salad in a shot glass but cut through the center with vibrant acid, this is a terrific Riesling whether you're a dry wine newbie or a serious wine geek. Sometimes lousy vintages are the best opportunity to experience what a top producer can do. Try this example and see for yourself!

Ripe yellow peaches and cantaloupe combine elegantly with a hint of wet stones on the nose. A nice, tart acidity, steely backbone and a bitter citrus pith finish give this off-dry Riesling structure and balance.
