Smith Madrone Riesling Napa Valley Estate Bottled 1995

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This has just a beautiful nose, with green tea layered over dried lime zest topped with an emerging hint of petrol. Air brings out suggestions of some treacle and honey sweetness as well. On the palate, the bright acids support a broad and supple mouthful of apricot and lime fruit that shows the slightest honeyed edge. This is long and super-bright on the finish, with superb integration and a lovely fan of honeycomb and spiced apples. Exceptionally easy to drink, I wish I could have spent the afternoon with this bottle. 93pts
