Brandborg Riesling Umpqua Valley 2005

Member Review by schellbe:

Nose of fresh baked bread, floral and mint. Nose reminds me of Cuvee Emile (Trimbach). Flavors of sweet spicy fruit with mineral, yet totally dry. Nice acidity. Finest west coast Riesling I have had, with none of the heaviness found in many of the OR-WA Rieslings. Probably will drink well for another two years; no evidence of fading.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
