2009 Smith-Madrone Estate Riesling
Everything about this wine suggests youthful vigor. The vibrant green/gold hue is mirrored by lively, developing aromas of pears, apples and honeysuckle. This leads to a succulent, deeply flavorful mid-palate, ending finally with a lip-smacking, juicy-fruit acidity. At this point in time the wine is poised almost precisely between the charming fun filled year and the beautiful future that lies ahead. Drink now and enjoy ... or keep it for another ten to fifteen years and trust in the future to reward you.
