Community Tasting Note

  • oldwines wrote: 86 points

    January 14, 2020 - Tasted at the Wine & Spirits Top 100 Symposium in NYC. This was nicely fruity with pear and peach notes but seemed medium- to low in acidity which seemed strange for a Riesling. I guess the 2017 vintage in Oregon really was warm!

Compared to the other higher acid whites I had been tasting this just didn't seem in the same league. This was the first I had tasted any of their wines. Perhaps it just suffered by a tough set of comparisons. Check out my other notes (some still in process) for the other wines I was drinking and maybe the context will help make more sense of it.
