2009 Palmaz Vineyards Riesling "Louise"

The late-October rain that plagued so many Napa vintners in 2009 had no impact on the Riesling fruit, which was harvested well before the showers fell. In fact, the temperate summer of 2009 resulted in a wine of great refinement and complexity. The delicate aromas of lime zest and pear complement the uplifting hints of freshly cut grass. The strong finish makes this vintage a perfect wine to balance rich dishes such as brie-and-onion tarts, or indulgent macaroni and cheese with lobster.
