Red Rooster 2009 Riesling

I liked their 2008, so was eager to see how this has developed. Light clear silver-gold again sporting a grapefruit nose but with perhaps less sweetness. Medium body off-dry with nice acidity balancing honey, citrus, and a hint of sage. Medium body, well balanced—very enjoyable, and I think a step forward from the previous vintage. 14% alcohol (up from 13%); $19.20 at Crosstown. See Red Rooster Winery.
