Crisp acidity and minerality make this wine a great food cohort and attractive to anyone who favors a drier, more delicate style of Riesling. Apple, pear and spice come together in layers, and while refreshing, the wine also contains a lovely creaminess on the palate. A fruity, lingering aftertaste seals the deal.

The 2005 Riesling - an exceptional value - offers a resin-, pitch-, sage-, tangerine- and apricot-scented aroma. In the mouth the wine is billowing with floral and distilled pit fruit essences, pleasantly touched by herb and spice nuances, and exhibits the softness of touch one finds in many of the best Finger Lakes Rieslings. The juicy, satisfying back end returns to the themes with which the wine introduced itself, notably tangerine, pit fruits, and pungent herbs. There is a hint of sweetness - typical of Finger Lakes "dry" Rieslings - that suits this one perfectly.

Really fine fruit here; this drinks like a Mosel Riesling, with fig and lime flavors that ripple along crunchy acidity, supported by a distinct slate note. Admirable concentration, with a fine cut on the finish. Should age nicely. Drink now through 2006.

On my latest trip to the Finger Lakes, I made a point to stop at the world-renowned Dr. Frank winery on Keuka Lake. The Frank family has been a leader in Finger Lakes wines for three generations, and visiting there was a long overdue treat. It was on this visit that I got to try the 2006 Dry Riesling. It showed such delicate tree fruit backed by some world-class minerality, a great acidic backbone and a dry finish. The Finger Lakes wineries have a wealth of great Rieslings in the 2006 vintage but the Dr. Frank Dry is the standout wine of the year. Kiss French, uncork New York.

The king of New York State Riesling pulls it off again. This wine opens with a gorgeous blend of mineral and fruit. The vibrant flavors follow through in the mouth with wet stones, apricot, pear and just a touch of slate. The long, elegant finish justifies every penny of the $18 price tag.

Quite dry on the palate, this seductive Riesling exhibits aromas of honeyed ginger with a hint of smoke and petrol. Lime and apple flavors combine with a zippy acidity and subtle minerality throughout.

A light, fresh style, with mineral and pippin apple notes backed by a twinge of slate on the finish. There's nice minerally length. Drink now through 2010.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Dry Riesling has a classic pale straw color with a crisp green hue. The nose shows typical Keuka Lake minerality and fresh lemon citrus fruit with an intriguing blossom aroma. The palate shows wonderful tight acid that balances out the fruity residual sugar enhancing the floral and lemon flavors. The palate also displays the slatey mineral characteristics that typify Dr. Frank's Rieslings. Serve with all seafood and crustaceans.
