92 points "This was one of the best Rieslings of the year last vintage, and the '07 is even better. It's absolutely dry and superbly racy. Acidity, at .82, is one of the highest I've seen in years. Balancing that is a broad, complex array of citrus, peach, apple, flower, petrol, mineral and spice flavors. If California Riesling is making a comeback, it's because of wines like this."

"I love Riesling and they love me. This time around I'll try to make my point with the 2007 Pey-Marin "The Shell Mound" Marin County Riesling. All the Riesling haters out there, you know who you are, you can't use your famous excuse on this bottle. That's right this has no discernable sugar, it's dry! Let me repeat myself this is dry Riesling, refreshing and low in alcohol, 11.8% to be exact. Peachy and keen this is simply delicious with its oily, complex notes of nectarine, key lime, Navel orange flesh and chalk. What a way to start, or end, a meal. (Bryan Brick, K&L)"
