Another wine from the Wine Spectator top 100 of 2009 it came in at #55 and they gave it a 91 for $18US. The wine is quite pale in color, mild on the nose with some varietal Riesling bouquet. On the front of the tongue are the hints of some sweet flavors, apricots come to mind. On the finish the sweet is immediately matched with some nice tart almost Sauv Blanc like flavors. The two tastes went okay today and all in all it was an alright experience. The wine was medium in finish with oaks and alcohol under control. I would give this one an 89 or so. Not the best Riesling I’ve had but always good to try something new.

This subtle version offers a finely woven mix of white peach and crushed pine needle flavors, with hints of brine and smoke. There’s racy acidity, but it’s well-meshed, and a mineral note lingers on the delicate finish. Drink now through 2015. Smart Buys. Score – 91. (Alison Napjus, www.winespectator.com, Nov. 15, 2009)
