1998 Navarro White Riesling “Deep-End Blend” Mendocino County

OK, my wine sucked, what did YOU bring? … Oh, yeah, that’ll do. I’m a big fan of Navarro; they’re doing some of the best and most interesting winemaking in California. So Deep-End was unexpectedly horrible. Narrow, green, and tart. But in the interests of fairness to those who might be offended by my frank opinions, I should note that the bottle was nice and dark brown colored, the label was pasted on straight, and all the words were spelled right.
