Zocker 2009 Paragon Vineyard Riesling (Edna Valley)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $20
One of the most satisfying Rieslings of the vintage. It’s dry, crisp and exotic, with crisp flavors of citrus fruits, wildflowers and that famous diesel or lighter fluid taste that characterizes the best Rieslings. Really a superior wine that shows the brilliance of Edna Valley for unoaked white varieties, as well as the excellence of the Paragon Vineyard.  — S.H.  (4/1/2012)

Zocker 2012 Paragon Vineyard Grüner Veltliner (Edna Valley)

  1. $20
Zocker flies under the radar with this Austrian variety, but insiders understand. The winery consistently produces one of the best in California. The wine leans toward the style of today’s dry, unoaked, low alcohol and crisply acidic white wines, with complex flavors of citrus fruit, nectarine, peach, honey and minerals.  — S.H.  (12/31/2013)

Zocker 2010 Paragon Vineyard Grüner Veltliner (Edna Valley)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $20
Pretty much a successful repeat of the winery’s ’09. It’s dry and high in acidity, giving it a zesty, clean mouthfeel. The flavors are refreshing, of citrus fruits, pears, vanilla and white pepper. A compelling and beautiful cocktail-style wine.  — S.H.  (12/31/2011)

Zocker 2009 Paragon Vineyard Grüner Veltliner (Edna Valley)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $20
A beautiful wine with a spine of steel and trenchant acidity that demands savory, spicy foods. It’s brilliantly ripe in mineral-infused Meyer lemon and spicy green melon, and while it’s technically dry, has a rich, honeyed sweetness. Entirely unoaked.  — S.H.  (2/1/2011)

Zocker 2011 Paragon Vineyard Grüner Veltliner (Edna Valley)

  1. $20
This tastes sweeter than the very fine 2009 and 2010, but that may be because the fruit is so powerfully intense and pure. It has flavors of ripe tangerines, limes, peaches and apples, made racy by its acidity. No oak has been applied, so the wine tastes fresh.  — S.H.  (11/1/2012)
