"Like its namesake, our 2014 Butterfly soars high in the glass and on the palate with balanced wings of sweet orchard fruits, citrus acidity and slate-laced minerality. A gentle breeze of dry mountain grass and herbs brings the wine to a heavenly finish. Perhaps BJ Thomas said it best when he sang: 'Lips are sweet as candy, the taste stays on my mind.' One sip and you’ll be caught happily in its net." —winemaker
"Harboring only 15 grams of residual sugar, this installment of Zilliken’s volume bottling from purchased fruit is as dry as any I can recall. It boasts a serious concentration of smoky, stony inflections for an ostensibly intro-level Riesling, yet its pithy persistence also features ample apple and peach juiciness. Drinking window: 2016 - 2018." —David Schildknecht, Vinous
