Community Tasting Notes 3

    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!

    December 15, 2019 - Alsatian-like, with hits of apple and nuts. Quite dry, not much acidity, but enough for lighter foods.

    March 4, 2019 - Star-brite appearance. Excellent balance and acidity, with varietally perfect flavors and aromas. Slightly off dry. Amongst the best domestic Rieslings I have tasted. Great character. Perfect food wine.
