"This is a beautiful Riesling. It's not totally dry, like the label says, because there's a vein of honey that enriches the orange, apricot and white flower flavors, and persists into the finish. The acidity is ample, and there's a minerality that suggests steel and stones." ~ Wine Enthusiast

“Crisp acidity and a cool minerality, like liquid granite, give this wine elegance and complexity. It's rich in tropical fruits, peaches, pears, buttercream and vanilla, with oaky notes of buttered toast and caramel. What a fancy wine to have with Chardonnay-friendly fare, like lobster, crab or scallops in cream sauce.” ~ Wine Enthusiast

On the nose you will find that plum, dark chocolate, allspice, and blackberry liqueur mingle well with dried herbs de province, candied cherry and vanilla. Flavors of plum, blackberry, vanilla and a soft pleasant oak are accented by dark chocolate and kirsch liqueur.
PAIRS GREAT WITH CHOCOLATE!
"While this wine is clean and vibrant, it tastes off dry. With its honeyed finish and flavors of peach, nectarine and apricot jam, this is one of the most pleasant California Rieslings on the market. It’s easy to drink with ham, sausage and slightly sweet Asian fare." ~ Wine Enthusiast
