How does this wine exist for $20? Such a value. Its Bosc pear and donut peach aromas are laced with notes of tangerine and gardenias. The Poet's silky texture and velvety mouthfeel escort flavors like lemon soda and mandarin orange slices. - Best Buy

Another incredible vintage of Riesling from the winemakers at Long Shadows, the 2022 Poet’s Leap actually leaps from the glass and into your senses. Made in a dry style with boisterous aromas of grated lime zest, stone fruits, red apples, crushed limestone, and just a hint of petrol, which will become more prominent as it ages. Elevated acidity keeps everything moving on the finish. I can see this wine aging incredibly well for a couple of decades.

The 2022 Poet’s Leap mainly comes from the Gamache Vineyard with vines that were planted in the 1980s. This wine was originally made in conjunction with German producer Armand Diel. Only 1 G/L sugar, this Trocken style has fantastic tension with petrol, lemon/lime zest, juicy white peach, wet stone and shades of Gravenstein apple. Nicely textured, this is gorgeous stuff that is amongst the finest made in Washington State.

The 2022 Poet's Leap Riesling impresses with its spicy bouquet of lemongrass, ginger, green melon, crushed stone and hints of petrol. This is soft textured and soothing, with a measured inner sweetness and salty mineral tones to contrast the ripe orchard fruits within. The 2022 leaves the palate completely refreshed and the mouth watering for more, finishing with hints of kiwi and candied lime. This is gorgeous, clocking in a just under one gram-per-liter of residual sugar.

The 2022 Poet’s Leap is sourced from old vine Riesling grown at Sagemoor’s Gamache Vineyard. Planted in the mid-1980s, this is a cooler site than other parts of the Columbia Valley. Riesling grown here is notable for its bright acidity and appealing citrus character. A small amount ofBacchus Vineyard’s German clone Riesling and Yakima Valley’s DuBrul Vineyard grapes round out the blend, adding minerality, stone fruit, and heightened aromatics to the finished wine.
