My dry #Riesling obsession continues. I think I am officially declaring it my favorite white grape. Never find too many CA ones I love, but this one was really good.

Searing acid and petrol. This would be great with spicy Asian food. Nice to see a Napa producer do some Riesling.

Great example of Dry Riesling in Napa Valley. Oak Knoll is decidedly cooler than most other AVA's outside of Coombsville. Perfect for Riesling. Nice tropical Fruit and balanced acidity. $25 retail at the winery.

My first Cali Riesling and boy do people at Trefethen knock it out of the park! Dry, completely. A bucket load of petroleum/glycerine character. Weirdly a touch of vanilla ice cream on the note. Still, a great job!

Green apples on the nose with a touch of gummy worms, not overly sweet or acidic wine. Very smooth and well balanced.
