The Vintage

2009 was an excellent, even-keeled vintage in Napa Valley. Consistently mild weather throughout the growing and harvest seasons resulted in stress-free vines, long grape hang times, and fruit with finely developed flavors at lower-than-normal sugar levels.

The Wine

Our 35th vintage of Napa Valley Riesling – yup, we’ve been making it since Gerald Ford was President! – is mesmerizingly fresh and fragrant with gorgeous jasmine, litchi, green apple, honeyed white peach, ruby red grapefruit and slate aromas. Dry, but succulent, its racy apple, kiwi, lime, guava and quince flavors are powered by bright, mouthwatering acidity and a refreshing minerality that animates the wine’s long, lively finish. California Riesling at its finest!

Food Affinities

Shellfish, sushi, crab cakes, seared Ahi tuna, lemon chicken, grilled chicken-apple sausages, and a broad assortment of Asian, southwestern and Caribbean dishes (especially green curries) are just a few of the delicious matches for this wonderfully versatile food wine. Don’t forget to sip some while you cook!
