Smith-Madrone 2006 Riesling (Spring Mountain District)

Editors' Choice

Doesn't say “dry” on the label, like so many others do, but it really is basically dry, which allows the palate to savor the pure fruit of the grape and the beautifully crisp acids. This really is one of the most balanced Rieslings in California, with a slate and petrol edge to the green apple, pineapple, nectarine and wildflower flavors. If you like aging your whites, it should effortlessly glide through the next 10 years in a cool cellar.
