Both were impressive, and sterling examples of different styles of the varietal. I’d say the Forge was the more “serious” wine, and was impressive for its laser beam of acid and unusual peachy flavors. I’d buy it again.
Konstantin Frank’s semi-dry, however, is a much more universally appealing wine; one that makes you want to keep going back for more. People will say this is because of the additional sweetness, and there’s some truth to that, but this is a very, very friendly wine. It tastes, for lack of a better word, like riesling. And at about $10 less than the Forge, that’s impressive.
B+’s all around.
