Winemaker's Notes

"The 2002 Riesling "Contours" is released 5 years after the vintage to demonstrate Riesling's ability to improve with age. It is a selection of the best parcels from a vineyard planted in 1961.

Featuring notes of mineral, spring flowers, honeysuckle, and lemon-lime, this is followed by a wine with impeccable balance, intense flavors, and a lengthy finish. It will drink well for at least another 5-7 years." 91 Points
Wine Advocate

"Glorious complexity and intensity; has fulfilled all the promises it showed as a gold medal winner at the National Wine Show '04; beautiful line and balance to the lime/citrus fruit, and a lingering finish. Screwcap." 94 Points
