"Exceptional. Floral/honeysuckle aroma with a bit of quince; 19 grams of residual sugar balanced by 9 grams of acid, so a succulent entry leads to a crisp finish. Try with spiced curry dishes." --Dan Berger

 

4 stars "Off dry, medium full bodied, and fruity in style, with floral overtones. It tastes of honey, peach, gardenia, and apricot." --Restaurant Wine Magazine

 

"This buoyant, medium-sweet Riesling sports a good dose of lively, candied-lemon and green-peach fruitiness to its credit. Vibrant acids balance its sugars." --Connoisseur's Guide to California Wine

 

88 "Straddles the border between dry and off-dry, with 1.9% residual sugar, but the extraordinarily high acidity balances the honeyed lime, spicy apple pie and wildflower flavors and makes the finish functionally dry. Great as an aperitif sipper, and a honey-glazed ham will be a perfect partner." --Wine Enthusiast Magazine  

 

"Off-dry with spiced apple flavors and great acidity." -- San Jose Mercury News

 

"Delicious--a moderately sweet, honeyed-peach version of the varietal." --Santa Rosa Press Democrat

 

"Aromatic and peachy, with an array of honey, fig, lime and floral notes that build through the long, juicy, mouthwatering finish. Off-dry. Delish. Ready to drink now and over the next 3-4 years. (Maybe more!)" --wineskinny.com
