One word (again), WOW! Rieslings have always been welcome in our house, mostly as a sweet, refreshing, afternoon treat or dessert. So, it seemed a bit paradoxical to read "Dry Riesling" on the label... A whiff gave promise of all the things that we love Riesling for, outrageous fruit, sweetness (sugars?) and crispness without being harsh. A sip fulfilled the promise, but without the diabetic-coma-inducing sweetness of the Rieslings we've grown accustomed to.  This is probably my wife's current favorite selection from our collection.  The challenge is making it last until the 2003 is released as the 2002 is sold out.  This is one of the 2 wines that we purchase by the case, both for drinking and gifting.

Notes:

Fresh, fruity, just enough sweetness without giving the impression that you're drinking dessert.  The finish is long and pleasing, with hints of more earthy fruits hanging on till the end. I was most reminded of a pear freshly plucked from a tree. Definitely one to make note of and hope for more of in the future. 7/10
