The Undiscovered California – 2015 Edition

One of the most intriguing aspects of the California wine scene is the pace of change. It seems like interesting new projects pop up virtually every year. These are some of the most exciting emerging wineries I have tasted within the last year or so. Most are in their first or second commercial release. Production levels are often tiny, so readers will want to jump on these wines.

2013 Jos. Christoffel Jun. Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett, 92 points

Karl-Joseph Christoffel's 2013 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett is the Mosel at its finest: pure, finely chiseled and unbelievable elegant! It is a tribute to how Riesling blossoms on slate soils. Delicately off-dry, it is my top value pick for Germany in 2013. (JP)
