2019 vintage. Straightforward, crisp, and clean. Green apples, lime, slate, light white floral notes as it warms. Man, I hate confinement.

Dinner with a friend, brief notes this evening.

Prior notes still apply, just as beautiful as always, killer value!

48 Hour Update:
Nose has grapefruit rind, green apple, under-ripe pineapple, wet slate, stainless steel shavings and under-ripe nectarine.
Palate has grapefruit, green apple, lemon zest, chiffonade cut sage, slate biased gravel, balanced acidity, medium finish and light sweetness. IMHO this bottle is still mostly closed up, note to future self, check these again 2022-23+.

Lean, racy, and mineral with excellent freshness. Crisp green apple and citrus with plenty of acid. Excellent with grilled shrimp.

A hot Labor Day 2018 in the Berkshires today, it was 94°F outside, but 83°F in my kitchen as I've been making BBQ sauce today. Now it's time for relaxing.

Nose of wet slate and faint petrol, greenish pineapple and green apple. Palate is crisp and lively, lemon, fresh sage, orange peel and medium minerality. More acidity than I've generally noted at bottles in this price point for 2016. We'll see how air improves this as the bottle warms, TBD on note updates.

No butterflies were hurt in the production of this Riesling. Keefer lime rind and Rocks. Fredism dropped " that guy could screw up a one man parade!"

You know when you walk into a really good farmers market, and you're temporarily overwhelmed with the piquant gossamer of stone fruit aromatics that just seem to good to be true? Yeah. There's a little of that.

Great acid play. An exciting wine.
