Complex and intense floral and herb notes greet the nose followed by a touch of ginseng and thistle with an underlay of motor oil. Salty and vibrant on entry, this is very finely focused with real tension in the mouth. the flavors of lime blossom, jasmine and pineapple are well supported by the soft chalky minerality the acidity lends to the wine. this is notable clear and deep on the palate finishing with a flourish of dried herb, orange peel and lime pith on the long somewhat autumnal finish. 92pts
Shows some evolution on the nose, which is rather green toned with notes of green plum, flowers, and lightly green spice tones. Fairly rich and well balanced in the mouth with enough acid to keep from being weighty on the palate. Some of the green plum character on the palate as well wit more of a sweet citrus tone that is driven through the moderately long finish, which shows a nice touch of nut meat sweetness on the finale. 90pts
apple-y goodness. with a touch of pina colada. I am going to put one away for a couple of years because I think it's going to change drastically.
Nice crisp, dry riesling. Lots of pear and apple in the nose but got mineral, lime and acid as well in the taste. Loved it.
I'm not typically a riesling fan, but this was perfect on a hot day. Really well balanced. Citrus and honey. Fairly long finish. Maybe i will try more of this varietal...
Lovely riesling. Some honey, floral and hint of petroleum in the nose. Some citrus and apple too. Nice acidity. Surprisingly smooth with some honey, ripe apple and a medium finish. Wish I held it one more year.
I don't have a lot of experience with Riesling, but have tried a few -- I thought this was excellent - very fruity with some of the typical riesling flavors. Well balanced, a great summer white. After trying a bottle, I just ordered another 1/2 case.
Wow .. a little bit of time and this wine has aged elegantly. Still has crisp acidity and Mamacork says ... lots of citrus and honey. Wonderful with food and cuts through medium spice.

Rich complex nose of slate, lime, green apple,fresh cut hay, apple, quince, white flowers andminerals. Fresh tarragon, clove, cinnamon, whitecurrents and beeswax notes offer more complexityand depth to the nose after the wine opens.Concentrated and intense, the mid-palate hasflavors of wet stones, apricots and peaches,while the finish is exciting, lingering and full.
Bright yellow. Fresh orange, lime, quince and anise on the nose, with a dusty mineral undertone. Bitter lemon and pear skin flavors are complicated by licorice and honeysuckle, with firm grip and tangy mineral lift. Gains weight on the finish while maintaining vivacity and focus. Pretty impressive.
