I have steered clear of Chateau Montelena wines for the longest time because I found them somewhat thin and uninteresting. But Matt Crafton, Chateau Montelena's new winemaker, has crafted (sorry, I couldn't help myself) a really, really nice domestic Riesling. I am looking forward to see what Mr. Crafton does with the reds.
I am really starting to appreciate wines made from the Riesling grape. It's taken me a while, but I am beginning to understand why most wine connoisseurs consider Riesling to be the greatest of all wines.
