Year's Best West Coast Rieslings

"Brooks is one of Oregon’s most dedicated riesling producers, and yet Chris Williams' wines, to this taster, aren’t so much standard-bearers as arresting outliers, often fiercely savory and idiosyncratic, hinting at fruit but not about fruit at all. This one, from a vineyard planted in 2007, is no exception, a wine that starts out savory, more about tone than flavor. There is a compact package of wheat, Meyer lemon and lime flavor delivered with remarkable focus and freshness. It’s a tense, leesy and crisp riesling for
contemplating, or pouring with herb-roasted halibut."

— Patrick J. Comiskey

 

92 Points, Editor's Choice, Wine Enthusiast

"Some residual sugar accents this wine's lush orange, peach and papaya flavors. Further details emerge as it opens: vanilla wafer, butter cookie, apple pie. It's complex and thoroughly delicious now but will age beautifully for many years."

Winemaker Notes: 

Bouquet: lemon honey, chamomile, fresh ginger, Canary melon, bergamot, dried apricot

Palate: Fuji pear, candy brittle, peach syrup, meyer lemon, rosemary

Perception: unctuous and honeyed with concentrated fruit flavors and layered texture

Drinkability: wonderful paired with spiced and aromatic food, alpine cheeses, and summer fare
