07 Davis Family Riesling ($22) ☺☺

A brave decision to make a traditional 'old world' style riesling paid dividends for the winemaker of this wine. This riesling displays all the qualities associated with the classic dry riesling. The initial smell is bone dry mineral, almost petroleum flavors, but on the pallet it expands to reveal arid peaches, apples and honey.  This wine won't be to everyone's tastes but I can thoroughly recommend it for those who like the bone dry riesling typically found in Europe.
