"A nose of orange blossom, lavender and pear make this wine irrestible. The vibrant mouth feel of this wine reveals flavors of apple, peach, mandarin oranges and leads into a zesty fruit finish. Serve with light spicy foods or dessert." —winemaker
"An inviting citrus scent leads into a semi-dry white that’s much warmer and rounder than the nose would suggest. The flavors have a pleasing breadth despite its racy, focused through-line. Give it a little time to come together, then serve with chicken paprikash." —Wine & Spirits Magazine

"The 2014 Semi-Dry Riesling is sourced from the winery's Seneca Lake vines (unlike the Dry Riesling). It comes in at 24 grams per liter of residual sugar and 12% alcohol (versus 12.5% for the Dry Riesling). This is concentrated and simply stuffed in the mid-palate for this price range. Lingering nicely on the finish, it is clearly off-dry, but doesn't really seem sweet. This leans more on the fruit than the intense, laser bursts of acidity common to many young Rieslings, but its acidity easily balances the sugar--so, it is clearly there. As the wine airs, warms and opens up, it shows more crispness. It's ultimately fresh and lovely, beautifully balanced and delicious. It's not the best wine, but it is the Best Buy of this group of Frank submissions. Buy this by the case." —Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate

"Lemon-lime acidity cuts a laser-sharp edge through honey in this lush, concentrated Riesling full of pink grapefruit, mango and peach flavors. It's a lip smacking, juicy wine, yet stands up to even the most elegant occasions. Drink now. Best Buy." —Anna Lee Iijima, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
