Spring Mountain District Riesling 2019

Light yellow in color with a golden hue.

Beautiful and aromatic nose with apples, white flowers, diesel notes, honey and minerals.

Medium plus in body with high acidity.

Dry on the palate with a touch of RS.

Showing citrus, limes, apples, spices, white pepper, minerals, sea salt, light river rocks and diesel.

Tangy long finish with limes and spices.

This is a delicious Riesling from Spring Mountain District in Napa Valley. Elegant and fruit forward with enough acidity to balance the fruits.

Rich and nicely balanced. Feels like a Mosel Riesling. Tangy and interesting.

Still young, and already drinking beautifully. Will continue to age nicely in the next 15+ years.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 20 minutes of airtime. Better when not too cold.

I had a few vintages of this wine and it always delivers. This vintage is delicious.

Good by itself as a sipping wine or with food. Will pair nicely with spicy Asian food.

13.3% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Funny story. I took this bottle in my luggage to Florida. Bubble wrapped the heck out of it and it still broke. Lesson learned. Reminds me of some the middle to late 90 Burgundies that I have had but this is only 5-6 years old. Not sure how much life it has left but it’s good now. — 5 months ago

Singing Grüner Veltliner 2020

Bright gold color. Lovely aromas of white flowers, green apple and orange zest. Flavors of unripe peach, lemon, apple, asparagus and a distinct note of white pepper on the long and lingering finish. Bone dry with mouth watering acidity. Just a bit of CO2 right out of the bottle. Clean and crisp. So refreshing. Aging nicely. A taste of Spring! Thanks for sharing, Kase! — a month ago
