Columbia Crest Riesling Columbia Valley Two Vines 2008
At Columbia Crest we pride ourselves on delivering handcrafted, superior-quality small-lot wines, as well as affordable everyday Washington wines. Our first release in 1984 started a tradition that has established us as one of America’s most popular and fast-growing wineries.
The color is a very pale yellow. There are aromas of peach and dried apricot. Flavors are crisp and include apple, apricot, and pear. It is off-dry, lively on the tongue, with a long finish. A good summertime wine that will pair well with lots of food, or can be sipped by itself. I purchased at $5.55.
It was very very sweet. I know rieslings usually are, but this one was too much to handle. It was almost candy-like. I didn't like it at all and will not be buying it again.
