The 2012 HARVEST SELECT IS LIGHTER THAN THE 2011. It is characterized by nectarine but has a short finish. It has a light body and is simple. I'm not impressed. No Botrytis. My rating 75.

This is one of very few riesling's I have tried and is one of my favorites. It is sweet, but not overly and almost a sparkling hint in there. I love it!

Very light and refreshing like a peach spritzer with some grapefruit citrus hints a twinge of minerality with soft acidity

Straw bright, aromas of white peach and lime; flavor notes of peach,Asian pear and citrus, with good mouth-feel and zippy acidity across the palate to a short finish.

An excellent wine for the price. I paid $4.99! A dry, refreshing Riesling with a crisp finish. Just the right amount of acidity. Pairs well with seafood.

The Harvest Select Sweet Riesling is made in a slightly sweeter style than our "Columbia Valley Riesling" but still shows the classic elements of Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling. It offers rich flavors of ripe peaches and apricot that are balanced by crisp acidity. - Bob Bertheau, WinemakerTotal acidity: 0.73g/100 mlph: 2.92Residual sugar: 4.71g/100 mlAlcohol: 10.5%

Offers beautiful crisp Washington Riesling character with rich flavors of ripe peaches and apricot. The fresh fruit and decadent character is balanced with crisp acidity to keep the wine in harmony.

"Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Edging into medium sweetness


Vintage: 2009 11/12/2010

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Expressive and well-made dry Riesling is a commodity that to us seems in short supply, and, as this bottling demonstrates, it is imperative, but also challenging to overcome the tendency of the grape to be slender, tight-fisted when made in this style. In this instance, that fruity reticence allows underlying bitterness to show through, and, while inexpensive, the wine wants for both depth and the variety's bouncy charms.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
