Palmaz describes its Riesling as an homage to old days of Napa, hearkening way back to the pre-prohibition days when Riesling was the area's most planted grape. Admittedly, reminiscing over the days when folks knew little enough about Napa that cold-loving Riesling was their go-to grape, feels a little like reminiscing over the good ol' days when Amazon only sold books and Netflix mailed you DVDs. But I'll also admit, this Riesling is the first wine in ages from Napa to surprise me with something other than its price tag. 

While it doesn't lack in acid, it certainly follows the lush Alsatian model for Riesling. Ripe peach, honeydew melon, pineapple, and tangerine pith melt over an oily, intensely textured body that leaves a long finish just beginning to show hints of honeycomb and kerosene. It's an opulent wine with miles of character. You can pair it with sushi or duck salad but we like it on its own on a sunny patio where you can ponder, if Napa can make Riesling this good, what else might be possible?
