External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

This is a real success for the winery, made bracingly fresh and crisp despite its 3% residual sugar. Bright flavors of pink grapefruit dominate the palate, filling out a pristine, crisp and deliciously fresh finish.

Another spectacular effort, though theyrsquo;ve bumped up the price significantly. This is beautifully varietal, mixing floral, bath powder, apple and grapefruit components in both the nose and the mouth. There is an elegant intensity that powers the wine through an exceptionally long, brilliant finish; the residual sweetness keeps the alcohol down to 11.5% without making the wine either soft or sugary.

Sweet and simple, with a modest level of spicy, apricot-tinged grapefruit flavor, finishing with some finesse. Drink now.

David Lake is the only Master of Wine currently producing wine in North America. Severe winter weather reduced the crop, but the ripening season was cool and the grapes matured late and showed unusual depth of flavor. Fine allspice and flowery aroma with a dash of honey. Medium dry with fine length of taste and good balancing acidity.

This Washington white appeals with its lovely citrus and litchi aromas and flavors, picking up a slight white pepper note on the off-dry finish. A deal at the price. Drink now.

Quite a perfect match for the 2003, this delightful wine remains bracingly fresh and crisp despite its 3.1% residual sugar. Rich and intense, it shows lovely flavors of pink grapefruit, melon and citrus rind. Some stony crispness underlies the fruit, which captures its sweetness without losing its edge. One of the best Gewurzes in the state, if not the country.

Lightly sweet, with medium-weight flavors of lychee and rose petal, hinting at white grapefruit as the finish persists. Drink now through 2010.
