"The 2019 Dry Riesling Argetsinger Vineyard, another late release, has just two grams of sugar plus 8.7 grams of total acidity and 12.8% alcohol. The regular Dry Riesling shows so well that some might wonder why they should trade up. It's a fair question since the difference in price is over $10 in a region known for its bargains. Many will be perfectly happy stopping there. Still, I'd say this is the better wine and that will become even clearer as they both age (and likely separate a bit more). This is more impressive for expressive fruit. It seems more like the essence of Riesling, unfolding slowly over your tongue and coating the palate until some bursts of acidity crop up. Like its regular 2019 sibling, though, it is relatively integrated and balanced, with not a hair out of place. If anything, it seems more refined and graceful. The slight tart aspect on the finish provides a bit of spice, but it never overwhelms the wine. So, you can drink this now." -Robert Parker

"The Argetsinger cuvée is a tour de force in this vintage, with the abundant aromas of nectarine and green apple of the 'regular' dry Riesling. Yet, the limestone soil of the mild slopes in this southeast corner of Lake Seneca shines through in the verdant and saline minerality that sets this wine apart. Piercingly lovely acidity but more than enough exuberant peachy fruit shot through with floral notes to bring this exciting wine into dynamic balance and carry it to an immensely satisfying finish. Its tightly wound structure and silky finesse ensures it should age for decades. Perhaps America's preeminent Riesling."
