2010 RIESLING-SOLD OUT
The 2010 vintage promises to be the best since we started making Riesling in '04. The vines are now 31 yrs old and the wines have really been showing the benefit of the old vine fruit. The '09 has evolved over the past year into a dynamic, complex wine with incredible flavor and length. The 2010 tastes better now than the '09 did at this time last year, so we have great expectations. There is a delicate lemon-lime aroma with a nice mineral edge.The texture is at once creamy and crisp carrying a burst of citrus and apple flavor with a wet stone note. The finish is bracing and savory with a hint of anis. As always this is a "10" with shellfish or all on its own.
