    March 7, 2011 - A shame to drink it so young. A classic Riesling with acidity, petrol, and crisp fruit. Great with our Thai dinner.

    December 3, 2009 - Lots of citrus and green apple notes with petrol on the nose, smells really nice but very light. Lots of acidity on the palate that hangs on throughout the entire experience. Green apples, lemons, green melon and basil flavors, almost a little herbacious. Needs food, on it's own at this point in the night I'm not as excited about this as I once was.

    June 10, 2009 - Strong diesel showing on the nose with wet granite, citrus fruits, lime, green melon and hints of leather. The palate carries STRONG acidity with light sweetness that leads into great fireworks once the wine is swallowed. Great burst of citrus acids in the finish that lingers for some time. Light cheese rind in the finish along with those strong acids. Great wine and fantastic QPR.

    May 27, 2009 - Pale lemon yellow, nose of wilted flowers and fresh apples. More apples and peaches on the palate, lots of rocks and bright acids; this wine is exceptionally intense, totally overpowering our creole/orange chicken. The finish begins slightly sweet, then a bucket of fruit acid leads to a long, mouth-filling, rocky finish. This wine pretty much supports itself and gobbles nearby food, perhaps it needs something much spicier. A beautiful wine.
