This wine has had good reviews from major sources. I don't agree with those. I have had at least 15 vintages of this wine and have never been impressed. The 2011 is no exception. Riesling has never done well being early harvested, with only a few exceptions. This wine has that early harvest simplicity. Light floral nose, good acid balance, light color, citrus and slight honey are found here. This wine is a shadow of their single vineyard wines. Lighter style wine with a short finish.

Very tasty, especially for the price. Full of fruits (pears, apples), and pretty sweet. Went really well with Thai spicy basil noodles with beef.

Excellent wine. No need to compliment with a meal. Nice to drink a glass of this wine by itself.

A northerly latitude gives the Columbia Valley roughly two more hours of sunlight daily during the peak-growing season than California, increasing the region s ability to ripen fruit.

Our Columbia Valley Riesling is a blend of Riesling from throughout Washington's Columbia Valley. We craft it to be a refreshing, off-dry Riesling vintage after vintage. The wine delivers sweet lime and peach character with subtle mineral notes. This is our "any day Riesling" that is a pleasure to drink and easy to match with a variety of foods. - Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker

Soft and open-textured, with pretty pear and nectarine flavors that ride on a delicate frame. Offers just enough acidity to stay fresh. Drink now.

A marvelous effort in a difficult year, this textbook Washington Riesling is bursting with apricot and peach goodness. Round and polished, it’s long and textured, with an excellent wash of minerality.

Soft, delicate and appealing for its pretty pear and floral aromas and flavors, lingering on the off-dry finish. Drink now. 443,000 cases made.

Winemaker's Notes:

• Riesling grapes were harvested in October at the peak of fl avor. • Fermentation temperatures were maintained at 50-55 degrees F to preserve Riesling’s fresh and fruity character, using an assortment of yeasts for added complexity. • We feature the “Riesling Taste Profi le” scale on the back label to help people understand that this Riesling is made in a “medium-dry” style.
