The 2016 Dry Riesling is a blend of 16 Falls Vineyard on shale and White Springs Vineyard on limestone, unoaked, dry (just four grams of sugar) and coming in at 12.6% alcohol. Owner-winemaker Morton Hallgren called this an unusually ripe vintage, allowing more time with skin contact. Although the statistics don't look very different than on its sibling this issue, this is a little friendlier, showing a bit more up-front fruit and less austerity as it airs and warms. I liked them both a lot, but I'd pick this if I had to choose today, a minor preference, which makes this an even better value than the White Springs single-vineyard wine this issue. Perhaps not quite as concentrated and not quite as age-worthy, this is still pretty close. It does everything beautifully, and then adds that extra touch of fruit. I won't be surprised if the answer is different in a few years in comparing the two—in fact, I suspect it will be—but the balance here is very good. Overall, this is a fine example of the value you can find in fairly basic FLX categories. This will go a bit better with food, I suspect, but it can do well on its own too. -Mark Squires, Apr 2018

Very lively, with good cut from start to finish, as peach, yellow and green apple and honeysuckle notes stream through, backed by a lingering mineral hint. Drink now through 2020. 5,825 cases made. -James Molesworth, Feb 2018
