91 Left Foot Charley 2016 Seventh Hill Farm Riesling (Old Mission Peninsula). A stunning nose offers bright clementine, quince, lime and white flowers, with lanolin just beginning to creep in. Ripe peach and yellow-apple flavors mingle with sweet pea and chalk accents on the palate, all honed by zippy lime-laced acidity. Gorgeous quince and pear flavors live long on the finish where the acidity continues to tingle. Editors’ Choice. —F.A.

90 Brys 2016 Wet rock, white flowers, flint and white peach are graceful on the nose of this reserve Riesling. The lightly sweet palate carries some weight and flavors of fresh lemon, ripe pear, Valencia orange and lychee are lush. Meyer lemon and ripe yellow-peach flavors experience a dry tug on the finish and playful acidity keeps the sweetness balanced and charming. —F.A.
