2016 Pazo Barrantes Albarino
Rías Baixas, Spain
Produced with the fruit from a 12-hectare estate in Valle del Salnés. 2016 saw a warm summer with some rains that saved the freshness of the vintage, which resulted in a good crop.

2013 Argyle ” Nuthouse” Riesling
Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon
Using both stainless steel and neutral oak fermentations to give more tools to play with. The stainless versions are left with a hint of residual sugar, which emphasize fresh, pure, round fruit while the neutral oak barrels are taken bone dry to bring the dichotomic elements of both mineral edge and subtle, creamy texture. The blending between these two styles across three blocks of Riesling create an excitement and energy in the salvaries. Heavenly white nectarine, lime blossom, and silvery minerality. ight and sleek, with pretty pear, white peach and lime flavors that come together harmoniously, lingering on the finish.

Soft, powdery traces of old-fashioned lipstick add an intriguing element to the nose. Entry is smooth, with bright cherry flavors and a “berry basket” of blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. Pomace and brown spice infuse the palate, which is round and coats the mouth. An initial flash of fruit gives way to soft tannins, natural acidity, and an evocative earthy character. The finish is unusually long, with hints of cranberry adding an unexpected note to the mix of this wine’s many layers. 91 Pts WW
