The 2013 Riesling “Lahoma Vineyards – The Knoll” is the first vintage of this bottling. It has been seen before, but it is worth another look. Its structure is lovely, but the petrol/sulfur is a fairly significant overlay at this point. It certainly mars the performance here. Winemaker Kelby Russell said to me that he thought this would blow off–and it might. I’ve seen it move in that direction before. That said, it is worthwhile at the moment exercising a little caution. It should be entitled to a notable uptick.
