Brooks Riesling Ara 750ml 2010      
Sku: 1842027*

 Wine Advocate 87 points (Oct 2013)
Brooks’ 2010 Riesling Ara originates in 1985 Yamhill Vineyards plantings and their estate’s 1974 block and was only recently released, a reaction to this wine’s austerity that I can appreciate. That having been noted, the lime-peel pungency and cut; bright lemon; and alkalinity on display here offer a more generous – and somehow shimmeringly interactive – performance than in the corresponding “regular” bottling, and there is also greater sheer refreshment to an admittedly rather severely-penetrating, tart, and phenolically-pronounced finish. A saline, briny streak serves for some saliva-inducement in a wine I would pair cautiously with cuisine and about the potential of which to become more interesting or ingratiating with further bottle age I remain agnostic.
