Vintage 2014 in Oregon may be remembered as the vintage of a lifetime, one of those rare vintages, reminiscent of 1988 and 2002, when you have high quality and high quantity simultaneously. The tone for the season was set at bud break, which averaged two weeks early, a lead that held on through harvest. Growing conditions were mostly dry and warmer than normal resulting in a large number of small clusters that ripened evenly, giving us wines that are fruit focused, quite concentrated and amazingly fresh.

Wine AdvocateFrom vines planted in 1978, the 2014 Riesling Estate has a punchy, vibrant and slightly oily bouquet that expresses the grape variety with some style, probably due to vine age. The palate is well balanced with good body, a little resinous in texture with a hint of lemongrass and pithy fruit towards the finish. This displays fine Riesling character and comes recommended.
