esbrown reviewed Trefethen Estate Dry Riesling 2004 on December 27, 2005
Ineteresting from the get go, there are things about this wine that scream typical and unorthodox. Typical Riesling shimmer in the glass, but with a slightly more golden color than most. The nose is full of pears, stones, grapefruit and green apple with a faint whiff of petrol. Am I in the Nahe? But on the palate we travel back to CA with more of the pears and green apples, but also almond oil, cream, cinnamon and a little smoke. Plush, viscous and rich, but with just enough acidity on the finish. Like a lime creme brulee, if there are such things. Could have been a little lighter on its feet, but overall very nice.
