Wine & Spirits - August 2019 - 51

YEAR'S BEST US RIESLINGS
tangerine flavor, it also has plenty of complexity, in its chalk and celery-salt textures,
its honeysuckle phenols gathering the finish.
Flush with fruit and with energy, it's a great
pour with Korean bi bim bap. (300 cases)

92 | Brooks

$24

2017 Yamhill-Carlton Yamhill Vineyard
Riesling ^ From a vineyard planted in the
mid-1980s, this is tense and bright, with hightoned passion-fruit flavors edged in lemon.
Lean and muscled, this has a mineral tautness that gathers the finish. (75 cases)
516147

91 | Brooks

$32

2017 Eola-Amity Hills Brooks Estate
Vineyard Riesling ^ Drawn from Brooks's
45-year-old estate vineyard, this is complex
and jangly from the first sniff, smelling of
lichi and Tequila salt, with a touch of botrytis
breadth and complexity in the background.
Its flavors take on broader apple and peach
tones, dry and mildly nutty, with a flinty mineral finish; to pair with halibut. (200 cases)
516892

91 | Ovum

$27

2017 Elkton Oregon Base Line Bradley
Vineyard Riesling ^ Bradley is an own-rooted
vineyard near Elkton, not far from the ocean,
and one of the coolest growing regions in the
Umpqua Valley. It grew a bright and citrusy
riesling in 2017, with pomelo-pith and lemonlime scents that turn into richer, more concentrated fruit flavors. Pour it with scallops.

91 | Trisaetum

90 | Brooks

$24

2017 Willamette Valley Vitae Springs
Vineyard Riesling ^ From a vineyard planted
in the late 1970s just south of the Eola Hills,
this wine projects an old-vine reticence. It
feels angular right from the scent, all lemonlime and citrus pith, and follows with a tart
apple flavor and firm, slatey acidity. It feels
like it needs years in the cellar. (125 cases)
517167

90 | Trisaetum

$32

2018 Ribbon Ridge Ribbon Ridge Estate
Dry Riesling ^ Another youthful entry from
Trisaetum, this wine is zippy and bright, with
scents of citrus, lees and jasmine, and firm,
lean flavors. The celery-salt notes and grippy
phenolics bring it to a mouthwatering finish.
(418 cases)
517189

89 | Edgefield

$17

2017 Chehalem Mountains Nicholas Vineyard Riesling (Best Buy) ^ At once bright and
tropical, this offers a mélange of fruit flavors,
broad and off-dry, yet it manages to remain
sleek-a rich, energetic wine to bring to dim
sum. (450 cases)

516576

87 | Chateau Ste. Michelle

$9

2017 Columbia Valley Dry Riesling (Best
Buy) ^ Displaying marvelous composure for
such an inexpensive wine, this starts off tart
and finishes plump and round, its classic
apple accents taking on a quince richness
with air.
517174

86 | Wahluke

$13

2018 Columbia Valley Whispering Tree
Riesling (Best Buy) ^ A pleasing yuzu tartness
leads in this inexpensive riesling. It's dry and
mildly saline, with a lemony edge.
516575

85 | Chateau Ste. Michelle

$9

2017 Columbia Valley Riesling (Best Buy) ^
Off dry, with the scent of warm apples, this
has enough acidity to keep it brisk and balanced. n

2018 Dundee Hills Wichmann Dundee
Dry Riesling ^ Young and savory, with a scent
of lemon blossoms and pear skin, this has
a green-herb bite and a powerful punch of
acidity that, while thrilling, could use some
time to settle down. Pour it with whitefish.

ginger and lemon, this is on the dry side,
refreshing, lifted and clean; for sea bream.

2017 Eola-Amity Hills Eclipse Totality
Brooks Estate Vineyard Riesling ^ An oldvine white with a scent of apples limned with

& Dr. Loosen

$20

2017 Columbia Valley Eroica Riesling
(Best Buy) ^ Subtle and complex as ever,
the 2017 Eroica delivers on its best features
(including price!) while introducing a few
more. It is always an accessible wine, just
off bone dry; this one starts off with lemon
and dried pineapple scents, then yields more
complex markers of petrol, wool and citrus.
It feels balanced and bright, luminous in
purity, with a mild phenolic bitterness that
holds the sweet fruit aloft. A steal at $20.
