I haven't tasted the Columbia Crest Grand Estate Riesling for many years before this 2010. Originally, I was not impressed but this offering is much better. It has more extract than their 2 vines and has a resin character with moderate fruit. A simple wine but nice nonetheless.

$10 wine. Crisp, some sweet right amount of tart. Really a good Riesling, great at $10. $10!

Intense aromas of apples and pears are complemented by a hint of minerality and orange blossoms. Rich, opulent flavors of tropical fruit are accentuated by crisp acidity, leading to a lingering, vibrant finish.

Sweet, with a lively balance to the almond-accented apple and honey flavors. Finishes with an open texture. Drink now.

Soft and appealing for its pretty pear and apple flavors, finishing off-dry. Drink now.

Sweet, but not soft, with a lively tang of acidity to balance the deftly nuanced pear, honey and floral flavors, lingering well. Drink now through 2015. 65,000 cases made. -HS

A tangy, green apple flavored Riesling, with some light melon fruit also. It shows more varietal character than the rsquo;04 and has a nice juicy pop to the midpalate, despite the relatively high residual sugar.

A great entry-level Riesling, fresh, floral and delicate, the Two Vines offers refined, even subtle flavors of green apple and melon, with lovely natural acidity. Despite considerable residual sugar, it does not seem overly sweet.

Apricot and honeysuckle are noticeable on the palate. This is a clean, crisp wine that offers a hint of sweetness on the balanced finish.
