Wine Enthusiast Magazine Reviews December 2017

2015 Riesling CSV - Rated 92
The low-yielding vines average 35 years of age, and their flavors are subtle yet distinctive. This wine unfolds slowly and almost imperceptibly, with subtle minerality around flavors of citrus pith and rind. It’s tart and racy, with a lick of Key lime through the finish.

2015 Riesling Estate - Rated 93 - Editor’s Choice
This is a dry-style Riesling, though it still lends a ripe, fruity impression. Lemon, lime and grapefruit are shuffled into a winning hand, with ample details of cilantro, fennel and wet stone. It’s a vibrant, refreshing wine that is immensely food friendly.

2015 Riesling Niagara Peninsula - Rated 92 - Editor’s Choice
Cave Spring rocks Riesling, and this off-dry (16g/L) version is sexy and mineraldrenched. It’s a perfect mix of sweet and tangy, the citrus and tree fruits dense with complex phenolic highlights that add to a wine that’s textural, full bodied and long.

2015 Pinot Noir - Rated 87
This includes 13% Gamay in the blend and spent 13 months in 15% new French oak. It’s a modest wine, with cranberry and tart raspberry fruit. It has good focus, a dash of pepper and more substance to the finish than you might expect. Two-hundred cases were exported to the U.S.

2014 Cabernet Franc - Rated 89
Cab Franc makes a strong case for being top gun among this region’s reds. This estate-grown example has been vinified for aromatics,elegance, balance and detail, and succeeds beautifully. Juicy boysenberry and blueberry fruit is buoyed with ample acidity. The flavors penetrate through a clean, crisp, lingering finish. Just 60 cases were exported to the U.S.
