2013 Estate Riesling
“Early, even and excellent” are three words being used
to describe this year’s growing season and the Napa
Valley wine grapes that have come from it, reecting
the consistent quality for which this world famous
wine region is known.
We source all the fruit for our Estate Riesling on at the
Yverdon Vineyard at an elevation of almost 2,000 feet.
Two separate German clones were planted on
two-acres in 2006, in six separate blocks. e vines
are grown in the coolest microclimates, which receive
very little afternoon sun, protecting the acidity of this
The 2013 Riesling opens with marmalade, honey and
orange spice. Kumquat, Asian Pear and crème brûlée round
out the oral aromatics. Round and viscous on the front
palate with lemon curd and bright tropical fruit notes, this
dry crisp wine nishes long with soft acidity.
