Other new single vineyard Riesling releases that you might want to try are;
2009 Sawmill Creek Vineyards Riesling WS 90 points·
Very fresh, with a floral edge to the flavors of lime and jasmine, which turn to snappy green apple on the refreshing, focused finish. There’s really good cut to this white. Drink now through 2012. 198 cases made. –JM
2009 Lahoma Vineyards Riesling – WS 89 points·
Off-dry, but focused and pure, with delicious apple, lime and kiwifruit flavors backed by a long, fresh finish. Should stretch out a touch more with brief cellaring. Drink now through 2012. 123 cases made. –JM
2009 Davis Vineyards Riesling – not yet rated
This Riesling is off-dry and complex with aromas of peach and quince in the nose, and flavors of apricot and tangerine on the palate. The palate is smooth, focused and voluptuous, leading to a crisp, dry and ethereal finish. -DW winemaker notes.
