Orofino Winery – Riesling 2007

This riesling from Orofino Winery showed impressive old world character.  The integration of diesel with the citrus and tropical fruits tasted older than its young five years.  Only 220 cases made back in its time and if you have any left, please invite me over to share it with you.  This Riesling is reaching early retirement, slowing down a bit, but still frisky. I would be consuming it now and for the next few years to enjoy the acid balance.  If you give it another 3-5 years (2015-2017) the acidity will drop and this wine get really oily and stinky.  Your call!
