The reading line said it all, “Impressive Rieslings and ambitious reds push quality higher.” James Molesworth lauded several personalities n the Finger Lakes, while writing “Quality is on the upswing in New York’s Finger Lakes region, near the state’s northern border…Whites, especially Riesling, remain the strong suit….”
Molesworth hailed Sam Artgetsinger, Morten Hallgren, Phil Davis, Lou Damiani, and Rob Thomas among others. He also praised labels Ravines, Damiani, and Shalestone Winery among many.
He then awarded some heft scores out to a few Finger Lakes wines:
