91 • Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards 2011 Pinot Gris, Finger Lakes $18. Best Buy.
Lovely apple sauce and nectarine aromas with satiny fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a plush, pure honeyed fruit and earth driven finish. A really classy pinot gris that tastes like an Alsatian. Pair with crab legs. (tasted on Sep-13-2012)
91 • Von Schleinitz 2011 Weissenberg, Riesling, Mosel $20.
White peach, yellow apples, pineapple, a touch of slatey minerality and ripe pear with jasmine, mango and honeysuckle. Silky mouthfeel has well-balanced acidity that keeps the luscious tropical fruit intact. Moderately long and balanced finish going back and forth from fruit to mineral to off dry to refreshing acidity. (tasted on Sep-27-2012)
90 • John Robert Eppler 2011 Fumé Blanc, Rutherford, Napa Valley $19.|Find-a-Wine|
Bright aromas of exotic tropical fruits, banana yogurt, and marinated banana peppers with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a juicy, melon, pepper and plantain finish. A really interesting expression of the grape. Pair with grilled crab and lobster or sip to your heart's content. (tasted on Sep-25-2012)
