Red Tail Ridge Riesling, Finger Lakes, New York, 2016 (750ml)
This extremely popular introductory wine embodies the elegant and racy style of classic Mosel Riesling. It is refreshing and fruity, with a fine mineral edge that is typical of the region. The grapes used to make Dr. L come exclusively from traditional vineyards with steep slopes and slate soil. By working closely with a select group of growers on long-term contracts, brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen are able to ensure excellent quality in every vintage.

Wine Enthusiast - "Slate and stone mark this delicately earthy wine, with strikes of green apple and pear in the background. The off-dry palate shows a pleasing roundness, with flavors of green melon and yellow apple giving a juicy feel. Bright acidity keeps this buoyant and lively, while a slightly savory note marks the close."
