Sub-prime scores...they should be higher...

Don Giovanni (John Z.): What the heck are you talking about? What scores are sub-prime? Also...I followed your link and I'm also wondering what this riesling shoot out is. You make it seem like a big deal but there's no info about it anywhere, even on your own website. Are you the only one participating? Also, are you posting at 3:32 AM because you're up late or up early? So many questions...

Thanks, Bob. This must have been an interesting event and between your recent adventure and Lenn's, I'm sure many more Californians are talking about Finger Lakes rieslings.

Beyond the dry and sweet dynamic which seemed to headline this event, what qualities of the FL rieslings did the participants most admire?



FYI up Early...

Hi Jason,

Good question.

I think most tasters were just reacting spontaneously to the style and balance of the wines. Most of them had not been exposed to a consistent flight of dry Riesling wines. Only a few of them had tasted Finger Lakes wines. The drier of the dry were the most preferred. The wines were ordered using the new scale from the International Riesling Foundation (based on a ratio of residual sugar to acid.
