Columbia Crest Riesling Premier 5l0 2008

External Review:

Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. The last vintage of Two Vines Riesling was one of the year's big surprises, and Columbia Crest has hit the mark for both quality and outstanding value once again. A fresh and buoyant wine of evident sweetness, it is far more about bright, Riesling-like fruit than it is about sugar, and, as easy as it is to taste now, it is so nicely constructed that it will keep well for several years should you elect to buy it by the case.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
