    October 25, 2012 - Distinctive petrol nose but not overbearing. Completely dry with some minerality, honey, preserved lemon. Refreshing and bracing. A really great value at the price.

    July 22, 2009 - The Greenwood Rieslings of the 1980s seemed the best possible in California until the Chandlers came along. Wow. Dry as Schlumberger or Trimbach yet with more expansive apple and greengage. Now the Chandlers are gone but Anderson Valley remains ground zero for Alsatian riffs. The few remaining bottles will be reserved for discriminating guests.

    December 18, 2008 - What a lovely wine...scents of Asian pear and stone fruits, acacia flowers, and slate emerge from the glass. In the mouth flavors of minerals lead into golden deliscious apples, apricots, and minerals are all supported by excellent acidity that really allows the purity of fruit to sail across the palate on a 30+ second finish. This is a wine that is all about food. I would like to say it's dry, but there is just a light hint of RS that lingers. Served with shrip scampi...it was sad to see the end of this bottle. (from a 375ml bottle)

    February 23, 2008 - Asian pear, white pepper and white flower (and honey-like) fragrances followed by surprisingly bone dry flavors somewhere between apple and lemon and passion fruit, with with slight minerality and finish of citrus peel and maybe jasmine. Good acidity and light mouth feel. Delicious! Looking forward to what this will be like with some age.

    December 7, 2007 - Best domestic riesling I've ever had, this blows Eroica out of the water. If you put it in a bag, no one would guess this was a US riesling. Bone dry, with aromas of apple, lemon blossom, and sea spray. Flavors of dry, tart apple, citrus, and stone. Old vines, Clone #49 riesling grapes from Alsace. Super Alsace-style riesling, and exceptional value for around $24.
