Sweet herbs, lemon drop candy and citrus oils greet the nose which if followed by a dry, crisp yet fruity mouthful of pure Riesling. It’s on the simple side yet the crystal clear lemon and green apple fruit is focused and very well presented. A great way to introduce someone to the pleasures of dry Riesling. 87pts

I enjoyed this wine. Definitely a strong citrus flavor, and on the sweeter side of most rieslings (though not necessarily for American varieties). We drank it with shrimp korma and chana masala. Yummy.

Quite possibly the best Riesling I've ever had!

Vintage: 2009 11/13/2010

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Keyed on fresh apricots and a touch of peach first in the nose and then again in its clean, well-balanced flavors, this attractive wine plays fairly evident sweetness against nicely placed acids and stays lively and fresh right to the end. It firms at the finish and takes on a slight green-pineapple note, but it stays in focus and should relax and round out a just bit if allowed to rest for another six months before drinking.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

The cool climate of the northern Salinas Valley enabled the grapes to hand long into the harvest while maintaining bright acidity. The result is a lovely Riesling, off-dry and refreshing in the manner of a fine German wine. It was blended with a splash of Muscat. The flavors of green apples, peaches, tangerines and honeysuckle are clean and vibrant. The residual sugar is 1.42%.

A delightful wine, and a classically inexpensive Monterey Riesling. Bone dry and crisp in acidity, it shows citrus, flower and mineral flavors, with a relieving touch of honey and vanilla. Sommeliers should scoop this one up. Production was 18,000 cases.

Another fine JR from this respected Salinas Valley winery. It's strongly flavored, with extracted peach, honeysuckle, gingerbread and citrus flavors, and a minerally streak suggesing flint. The acids are bright and firm. This dry wine finishes with a ton of spices.

Floral aromas lift the rich stone fruit and papaya flavors in this wine; natural acidity balances the light sweetness. Serve it with pad Thai.
