Dry Riesling 2011

91 Points – Wine Enthusiast – Best Buy – #10 Top 100 Best Buys 2012
Paul Gregutt, September 2012
“A fresh and textural wine, this puts a spicy spin on citrus rind and stone fruit flavors of peach and apricot. There’s an intriguing hint of white pepper as well, and an overall sensation of density, intensity and exceptional length.”


Riesling 2011

88 Points – Wine Enthusiast – Best Buy
Paul Gregutt, September 2012
“The sweetness gauge on the back label indicates this as medium dry, and at 3.2% residual sugar, there is more than a hint of sweetness. It’s all in fine balance, full flavored, fruity and round. A mix of peaches, apricots and Mandarin oranges makes this an interesting Riesling with some complexity.”


Riesling 2010

90 Points – Wine Enthusiast – #1 Top 100 2011
Paul Gregutt, November 2011
“Rich on the borderline between dry and sweet, this richly fruity riesling is packed with flavors or peach, apricot, pear, a hint of mint, and a streak of wet stone. There is a lot going on for such an inexpensive wine.”


Sweet Riesling 2010

90 Points – Wine & Spirits
March 2012
“A young wine with halbtrocken sweetness, this has ample weight and juiciness but remains clean in its pineapple flavors with a bright finish. For a green curry with mussels.”

Paul Gregutt, November 2011
“Plenty sweet with alcohol at just 8.5%, yet dry enough to accompany a main course of poultry or seafood in a fruit sauce, this round and pleasing wine has a mix of stone fruits and juicy acidity.”


Chenin Blanc 2008

90 Points – Wine & Spirits
November 2012
“Pure, varietally correct and completely refreshing, this terse and spicy chenin has scents of baked apples and lean quince flavors. For roast pork with applesauce. ”

Harvey Steiman, May 2012
“A crisp style, with balance and tautness offering pear, melon and lemon curd flavors that meld seamlessly on the lively, open-textured finish. Drink now.”


Gewürztraminer 2011

91 Points – Wine Enthusiast – Best Buy
Paul Gregutt, April 2013
“Lush and round, floral and fruity, this only hints at residual sugar. The acidity makes for a bracing palate that offers highlights of clover and honeysuckle, plus rich notes of stone fruits.”

89 Points – Wine Spectator
Harvey Steiman, February 2013
“Light and spicy, redolent of rose petal, cinnamon and lychee, with the flavors balanced against a soft, off-dry structure. Drink now.”
