90 • Hosmer 2008 Dry, Riesling, Cayuga Lake $12. Best Buy.
Yellow straw color. Aromas of honeyed lemon and snap pea follow through on a crisp entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium body with great intensity, minerality, and racy acidity. Finishes with long, wave of fuel-like minerals and peach skins. Very nice. (tasted on Apr-12-2010)

Aromas of peaches in cream and and candied lemon peels follow through on a round entry to a fruity medium body with pineapple and honeycrisp apple notes. Finishes with a long, powdery mineral fade. A very nice, off-dry riesling that will go great with spicy foods. (tasted on Apr-12-2010)
