    November 18, 2020 - Nearly identical notes to last year, obviously still young, with lovely honeyed notes of citrus, green tea, and apple skin. Racy palate but perhaps a bit more sap to a year ago. Good stuff

    July 18, 2020 - Green apple, lime, good minerality, touch of stone fruit (white peach), floral, a little petrol in the finish. Good acidity, but definitely a leaner style and it's pretty tight when opened. Should age nicely, and I hope it will round out with some time. It seems like it's similar in style to their Chardonnays, but I think the house style is less successful with Riesling. But I'm glad I have other bottles of it, and I'll likely buy it next vintage.

    June 21, 2020 - All green: Tart apple, lime, grass. Wet stone in the core and bright acidity towards the finish. Fairly linear, and it's a really fun line.

    June 2, 2020 - Not a lot of experience with Riesling. At first sip my wife said Marcus is very talented. This is delicious. Very aromatic, fruit and flowers on the nose. Great acidity that carries all the way through. Apricot, peach, lemon, lime with an oily texture and a mouthwatering finish. Impressed and will be seeking out more.
