Best thirty bucks I've spent all year and one of the great Rieslings ever. Forever ever.

Sweeter than expected, without enough brightness to make it an ideal pairing wine. Vanilla, Meyer lemon, green banana.

Strangely overly oxidized. Would expect a wine of this caliber to be still holding up but felt like this was losing structure. Nutty and salty.

Nice balance of fruit, minerality and full of acidity. Age worthy.
