Review:

Aromas of cream and custard followed by rose hips, Turkish Delight, and fresh mown hay. This is considered a "medium sweet" riesling by the International Riesling Foundation Scale.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

Generous aromatics of fresh mown hay, wet stones/minerals, melon (honeydew), lime blossom, talc and stone fruits (nectarines and white peaches) literally leap from the glass. More subtle notes of petrol, slate, white flowers, honeysuckle and violets or lilac add more complex notes after the initial aromatics have been brought forth. The aromas are complex, mouthwatering and very very focused and fresh.

It is on the palate that this wine really shines. The attack is lush, balanced and ripe, but rapier-like acidity brings great focus and lifts the wine into the mid-palate that is succulent and sweet tart. The juicy finish goes on and on.

The balance on this wine is perfect. Not a classically dry American Riesling at all but a Riesling with classic Germanic roots that is not afraid to deliver outstanding quality and personality on its own terms. A new Oregon classic. - the winery
