"Dry, tart and tasty, this fruit is from a Casteel family vineyard. The dense, detailed palate mixes citrus flesh and rind, grapefruit and stone, and trailing suggestions of tangerine and even pineapple. It's a lovely bottle, delicious now but certainly ageworthy, as are almost all of Brooks' acid-driven Rieslings."
-Paul Gregutt, 8/1/2019

Old world interplay of spring florals and minerality, supported by abundant fruit, prickly acidity and expansive textural finish.

OTHER NOTES

With only 120 cases produced, this wine will move quickly. It's organically farmed by one of the valley's visionaries, Mimi Casteel. A second generation wine grower, her commitment to the environment and restoring native habitat is unequaled.

We love this wine, not only because it's a truly stunning Riesling, but because it embodies everything that is good about the land that is being healed and the people whose lives are dedicated to crafting exceptional expressions of time and place.
