Cattail Creek 2009 Riesling Clone 21 Old Vines
Made from vines planted in 1976, the first block of Cattail's 100 acres. This really is the gem of the Riesling Clonal Project that Cattail launched with this vintage. These 37 year old vines really have depth of character. The nose is subtle yet sophisticated with Mac apple and pear fruit wrapped in a cocoon of mineral stoniness. The palate is layered like an onion, and is something worth peeling your way through, best of all there will be no tears here. That subtle sophistication is held in the glass with a good balance between the acid and the sweetness ... it also develops exceptionally well in the glass from open to final sip. With its delicacy in the mouth this wine is a real winner - the medium length finish seems to stick around the right amount of time but never wears out its welcome. Price: $25.20 - Rating; **** 1/2+
