Drinks like a cross between a good dry Riesling and a Loire SB. Very vivid, high acid, delicious and food friendly. Nice wine. — 3 years ago

DLC Öküzgözü 2019

Super tasty cross between CENTRAL coast CA Pinot and southern Rhône Grenache blend. Just the right amount of fresh black cherry and gentle Mediterranean herbs - lovely, low tannin profile with balanced acidity that defies the 14.5 ALC. FABULOUS at Otto Turkish Döner :) — a year ago

Lake Wanaka Central Otago Osteiner

Oddball geeky wine for sure - cross of Riesling and Sylvaner from the remote Central Otago region.

Agree with the comments - certainly more Riesling on the nose (shower curtain, tropical fruit), with Sylvaner coming in more on the palate (green fruit, white pepper, herbaceous ness). A light, insanely drinkable wine with surprisingly layers of complexity (is that schisty minerality there? Indeed it is! Some green papaya and makrut lime? That too. Citrus and orchard fruit? Uh huh. And, dare I go there, kiwi? Yup!

There’s definitely some RS in there, but acidity is high enough that it holds it well.. Not much of a finish, but none needed.

I really enjoyed this wine; my dinner companion was more meh.

Stone Hill Winery

Cross J Vineyard Norton 2015

Blinded a dear buddy in the wine trade on this tonight, guesses all over the place, in a great spot, want to see this in 10+Y.

72H Update:
Nose has crushed blackberries, ripe plum, dried plum, dried tart cherries, moist mahogany and faint moist soil. Palate has tart plum, light molasses, blackberry compote, faint leather notes and fine tannins. Not as good as day one, but no slouch on day three. A wonderful experience, many years in the bottle to go ahead.
