Very pretty and somewhat approachable now, but those who are patient will be rewarded as this comes together in the next several years. Best from 2020 through 2030. — A.Z.

From weathered gneiss and granite soils, this is a full-bodied and concentrated Riesling with searing acidity but also remarkable concentration that gives this wine a very long and aromatic finish. It is lean, straight and mineral, really piquant, and reveals a salty, well structured finish. Very promising! -Stephan Reinhardt
