Homefield advantage notwithstanding, I'm very happy the PBW wines (2003, 2007) showed so well. That said, I must say how impressed I am with the FLX Rieslings. Anthony Road showed everyone why it won the Gov Cup, while the big surprise for me was the very lovely Billsboro. Not every wine was a revalation, but clearly the terrior of the region and the talent of the winemakers, as well as house-styles were on display.

I'm glad that my assumptions about the style of NY State Rieslings seems to be solidified, that is, the upstate wines are "Mosel"-like and the downstate Rieslings are "Rhine"-like. That's an over-simplification, but one most winos understand.
