Like all Taft Street wines, this one is flavorful, varietally on-target, and affordable. A tasty, uncomplicated everyday wine, but to my taste a tad heavy for Riesling. Nice apricot and spicy pear fruit. Enough acid to keep it fresh, though possessing nothing like the lift and precision provided by some of the better German Rieslings. - HK 2010-12-20
