Other highlights include 93 points for both the HJW Bio Riesling from 2016, as well as the Riesling Magdalena Vineyard 2018. The 2018 Reserve Dry Riesling received 92 points.
“…this (wine) feels rich at first. Then it gathers itself with brisk, sneaky acids, the wine’s caramel-apple flavor reading as tart and nutty at once, ” writes Wine Editor Patrick Comiskey regarding the 2018 Magdalena Vineyard Riesling. He also notes that Dry Riesling 2018 has “…exquisite balance, satisfying and elegant.”
