2003 Anthony Road, Finger Lakes, Semi-dry, Riesling ($11.99 at Winery). Alcohol level 12%, and R.S. 1.4%. Picked this and another up on our most recent trip to FL. Gives you ripe apples and pears with a hint of spice on the nose and upfront. The residual sugar, alcohol, and acid meld together in the complexity in the middle along with a touch of dirt. The finish lingers. A lucious wine and a great value.

It matched perfectly with Scallops Morney and salad in B.C. dressing.

SCALLOPS MORNAY: Adapted from: James Beard’s New Fish Cookery

12 oz Sea Scallops
Greens from a scallion, two parsley sprigs, and a large sprig of thyme
Inexpensive but palatable Sauvignon Blanc
2 T Butter
2 T Flour
Salt, peppermill, pinch Cayenne
½ C Shredded Swiss style cheese
1/3 C Heavy cream
Crumbs from 1 slice bread
1 ½ T Additional butter melted
Grated Parmesan

Place scallion greens, parsley, and thyme in the bottom of a medium size non-reactive sauce pan. Arrange scallops on top of them. Cover with wine, bring to a boil and simmer six minutes from the time you see bubbles. Remove scallops with slotted spoon to a piece of wax paper to cool a little. Remove greens to garbage. Strain a cup of the resulting fish stock into a liquid measure. Dry sauce pan and add 2 tablespoons butter. Melt butter and add flour and seasoning. Off the heat add the fish stock. Bring to a boil and simmer five minutes to cook flour. Add Swiss cheese and melt. Add cream and stir. While sauce is cooking, quarter each scallop and add half to each of two six inch au gratin dishes. Toss the bread crumbs in the melted butter, and grate the Parmesan. Spoon sauce over the scallops until well covered (you don’t have to use all of it). Sprinkle the buttered breadcrumbs over the dishes, and top with grated Parmesan. Run under a broiler (put the dishes in a foiled jelly roll pan) until cheese melts and crumbs brown. Serves two people.

Had the second bottle last night with Haddock a la Creme, rolls, and spinach. It went very well, and was delicious, but if I had it to do all over again, would have had the Glenora last night and the Anthony Road the night before. Last night's would have matched better with the chicken on Thursday, and the sweeter wine from Gene would have matched better with the cream. Both very lovely wines.

We had another '03 that we picked up last October in Utica. It is now a little bit more austere with age, but still beyond lovely. It now gives more of a citreous overtone than previously. Still with lots the complexity that the grape can give, with a healthy dose of acidity and Finger Lakes austerity in the middle; and a finish that goes on and on.

Tonight it stood up to Jambon a' la Creme, and spinach. Great meal before we go on a trip to pick up some more.

Had our last '03 tonight with smoked chicken over peach chips; and salad with freshly made blue cheese dressing. What a great dinner for Tuesday night.

We brought back two '05s on our last trip, and opened one tonight with a similar dinner to the last. The '05 may be a little more citrusy that the '03, but still wonderful. The price is up by a buck.

Matched with a big (six pound) chicken smoked over apple chips, bisquits, and salad. Another nice Tuesday night.

IK, we picked up the dry riesling and it's going out on the boat tomorrow. I've got about 10 open bottles of white ranging from 1/4 to 1/2 full to quaff before I open anything fresh but I may post on that tomorrow night. This was one of the stand-out wineries for riesling for us.

Yesterday we smoked a turkey breast with wild Maine apple chips. Since we were going out for the evening with had iced tea with it.

Tonight we made turkey salad out some of the remains and opened another bottle of the '05 with it. Matched wonderfully, along with ears of corn. Very nice Thursday night.

We picked up two '06 at Bremmer's in Utica in May for $13.99 each. Alcohol level is 12.2% and the R.S. is 1.9. The R.S. is the same as some others' regular bottlings.

It gives you flowers and citrus on the nose and upfront. In the middle additional fruit includes soft pear and limes, along with a touch of petrol and minerality, and a crisp note of acidity. It finished lovely.

We matched it with charcoal grilled lemon/pepper chicken breast, Bordeaux rolls, and salad. Heady Saturday night dinner after a short hike in the White Mountains.

Popped the other '06 last night with steamed lobster, grilled corn, and salad. Our house guest loved all, as did we.
