Wine Spectator’s Finger Lakes Review

Keuka Lake Vineyards has been quietly putting out some stellar bottlings, led here by the top-scoring, small-production Falling Man Vineyard white. With such impressive offerings, as well as notable values, this winery can now be included among the Finger Lakes’ elite producers.

Elaine Chukan Brown: A return to hybrids

I enjoyed the Keuka Lake, Turkey Run Vineyard Vignoles 2019, grown in the gravels of New York state’s Finger Lakes AVA. It’s beautifully aromatic, with a round palate of orchard and stone fruits mixed through with pithiness, bursting acidity and a silky texture.

On the south east end of Keuka Lake, nestled within homes, a small woodland, and Silvernail Road, where passersby pause for polite conversation, lies a particular vineyard owned by Keuka Lake Vineyards (KLV).

Wine Spectator

Riesling Finger Lakes Dry Evergreen Lek Vineyard 2015

Score: 91

A light talc edge leads the way in this white, followed by lime pith, yellow apple and jicama flavors. A slate accent underscores the finish, which is pure and bone-dry. Best from 2018 through 2022. – James Molesworth

Wine Spectator

Riesling Finger Lakes Dry Falling Man Vineyard 2015

Score: 92

This has ripeness and drive, with juicy yellow apple, peach and persimmon notes forming the core, all carried by dried chamomile, pine and jicama streaks through the finish. Very distinctive, showing serious range and length. Best from 2018-2023. – James Molesworth

Wine Spectator

Riesling Finger Lakes Dry Falling Man Vineyard 2010

Score: 91

Mouth filling and racy, with fennel, green almond, and pear flavors carried by tense acidity that lends ample cut on the finish. An alluring yellow apple note lurks in the background and should emerge more with modest cellaring. Drink now through 2015. 103 Cases Made – James Molesworth
