Heart`s Needle Old Vine Riesling Mendocino 2016
#2!! A rarity, a staggering find, a wine you will ONLY, EVER see here at good ol’ Last Bottle, a wine NEVER-RELEASED by none other than Thomas Rivers Brown. Originally intended to be a new brand (the name comes from a W.D. Snodgrass poem), complimentary to his coveted Rivers-Marie brand, it was eventually abandoned, yet the wonderful wines remained --- like this STELLAR, almost-50% OFF, OLD-VINE (over 40 years old!!) Riesling from Mendocino County. And WE found it.
The wine is ridiculously, absurdly, terrifyingly easy to drink -- light, lifted, with a gorgeous freshness that begs to be enjoyed right away. Not sweet, but fruity and lively, with a little weight just to keep your mind distracted while your mouth has a big, huge party going on. Orange blossoms, crisp peaches, slate and intriguing spice, it’s hyper-fresh and we DEMAND that you drink it with some killer Thai food right away. We are!!
A crazy find and a no-brainer while it lasts…!

Like creating a good wine, becoming a winemaker takes time,
talent and a little luck.
