Winemaker's Notes

With wonderful brightness and purity of flavor, the 2012 Poet's Leap is a vibrant, refined wine showing impeccable balance. Layers of minerality, white flowers, dried apricots, refreshing citrus and a hint of honey provide complexity that lingers across the wine's clean finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Half of this year's Poet's Leap Riesling is sourced from The Benches, one quarter from old vine plantings at Dionysus, and the rest from Yakima's Phil Church vineyard. Marvelous concentration and a panoply of lush orange, apricot, peach and papaya flavors carry this beautifully balanced wine through a long and satisfying finish. Delicious young, it could also be cellared for a decade or longer. Editors' Choice."
94 Points

"Youthful and full of energy, this impressive Washington riesling smells drier than it is, with its limeade and passion fruit aromas. It's actually slightly heavier and richer than that, the fleshy flavors suggesting a pairing with something spicy, like a plate of larb, a Thai salad of spiced meat."
92 Points

"A beautiful Riesling that has excellent typicity, the 2012 Riesling Poet's Leap offers up classy lychee nut, citrus peel and freshly crushed stone-like minerality as well as a medium-bodied, semi-dry palate-feel that’s buffered nicely by juicy, lip smacking acidity. It's well done and while I would lean towards drinking bottles over the coming year or two, I was able to taste vintages going back through 2003, all of which were still in fine form."
91 Points

"Fresh and silky, with vibrant peach and green plum flavors that dance through the light and lively off-dry finish."
