    April 11, 2014 - Pale chartreuse colour. Hint of petrol on nose. Tense marmalade, grapefruit entry with lingering, bone-dry finish

    May 31, 2013 - Petrol, lime, citrus fruit on the nose. Very young on the palate, crisp, limey, long finish. Needs time.

    May 2, 2013 - Del Frisco Release Dinner, Denver, CO: Clear, very light straw color. Light Riesling nose. Off dry/dry, thinner flavor intensity/profile, more citrus/pineapple than expected/usual. Decent but nothing to write home about. Nothing off. $38-40

    May 1, 2013 - Served non-blind at Grange/Penfold's dinner, Del Frisco's, Denver. Perrotti-Brown liked it more than I did (her score was 91). Nice, with a slight touch of class to the package on the whole, but at the same time, not too far from middle of the road, either. At $21, a so-so value proposition, but not something I would consider purchasing at that price. Unmemorable, which is sad, because I really do adore a well-made Eden Valley Riesling.
