Ara Willamette Valley Riesling 2016

Honeycomb, nectar, green apple, white peach. A touch of sweetness with 1pc RS. Attractive texture. A successful wine from a low production winery - only 400 cases made. Should be more than $35. #wbc18 — a year ago

Nice, I have some challenges finding the Ara from year to year, but I do really like this producer.

Lugana Turbiana 2011

Supple and yet fresh. Some minerality but the stoned fruit and softness on the palate are the main features here. Attractive and simple. This is a 2011 tasted in 2018... Holding up well. #wbc18 — a year ago
