Lovely floral tones with ripe stone fruit. Slightly thicker texture that's an interesting and welcome contrast to the acid.

I had this at Kali in Los Angeles, where sommelier Drew Langley watches over an immaculately curated wine list. Does "Summer of Riesling" do it for you? It does for me, especially when they are such good examples. My wife had a Kabinett, but I had this Vandenberg example from Santa Barbara County. They listed it as "dry and medium bodied," which is good advice for a Riesling. This one, though, has a nice touch of petrol - I mean why order Riesling unless it has that? - along with extreme minerality and a muted citrus note. Paired it with the Niçoise salad to great effect. Also a hit with the wife's roast pork, Pennsylvania native that she is.

Delicately balanced and nimble on the palate despite the RS. That's a nice move.

Great Cali juice with a tip of the hat to Austrian style Riesling. Great weight and purity and lift.

Great mouth feel- round, off dry- perfect with sautéed soft shells with spring peas.

Wow. I'm honestly new to quality Reisling but this one rung my bell. Awesome acidity and balance that makes me want to take my time and gulp it all down at once.
