Sunny and warm on the nose with aromas of honey, roasted hazelnuts and a touch of petroleum, this medium-bodied dry Riesling surprises with an unexpected austerity in the mouth. It's an interesting transition, however, resulting in a sleek, steely wine with hints of chalk dust, bitter lime and canned pineapple flavors.

An Alsatian-style Riesling, this dry, firm wine has aromas of peach and citrus. Minerality backs the mouthfeel, while flavors of orange, melon, spice and peach pit play on the tongue. Strong acids and a long, minerally finish suggest that this wine will age gracefully over the next five years or more.

Floral, with a perfumy hint leading the way for peach, green almond, green apple and melon rind notes that all linger nicely on the taut finish. Bony in style, but not severe. Drink now through 2011.

Ravines Dry Riesling is made in the dry, New World Style. Elegant and vibrant with intricate floral aromas. Pear, apple and citrus notes followed by a lingering mineral finish. It pairs well with foods as diverse as spicey Asian, delicate seafood, and poultry in rich sauce. - Winery

This firm, Alsatian-style dry Riesling will please fans of more esoteric, terrior driven-wines. Aromas of citrus and peach play on the nose, while a minerally backbone supports elegant flavors of orange and spice. A little oily on the palate and lacking some of the zest of more accessible Rieslings, this wine is still apt to please on many levels.

Focused, with good pippin and slate notes and a refreshing finish. Drink now.
