Pyramid Valley Vineyards Rose Vineyard Riesling 2007
Light straw/gold. Initially somewhat closed; then still strict, but expressive: dried apricot, mandarin peel, quince, and cooking apple; also crushed rock, and a balsam/sandalwood note. Dense, introverted, with chalky phenolics and great mineral grip; an unusual kind of balance, less fulcrum (counterpoise of acid and sugar) than gyroscope -- internal components whirring in independent equilibrium; exciting for the dynamism, the energy this creates. Production: 85 cases.
