Ravines Single Vineyard Riesling Wins High Scores in Specator

“Quality is on the upswing in New York’s Finger Lakes Region” according to James Molesworth, senior editor of The Wine Spectator magazine.

​Ravines Wine Cellars, and our Dry Argetsinger Riesling is one of the features of this article, and Molesworth points out that Ravines single vineyard Dry Riesling is the only non-desert wine in the Finger Lakes ever to have consecutive vintages with outstanding ratings.

Sam Argetsinger and his family’s estate vineyard are a big part of the beauty of this wine. Old vines, gravelly loam and limestone deposits create a distinctive minerality that sets this vineyard apart from others.

Ravines Argetsinger Dry Riesling is not the only wine from us that made Molesworth’s list, also included was:

Ravines Riesling Finger Lakes Dry 2008 (Floral with perfumy hint of peach, green almond, green apple, and melon rind notes, Bony in style, but not severe. RATING: 92
Ravines Meritage Finger Lakes 2007 (Shows depth and refinement, with currant, damson, plum and black cherry fruit, and on a fine-grained structure.  Tangy herb and mineral hints.  Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot.) RATING: 89
