Columbia Winery Riesling Cellarmaster's 2011
Excellent nose of peach, nectarine and slight tangerine. Lacks power of some of the older vintages. Needs more acid. My rating -- 85Add winemaker's notes

The 2010 cellarmaster's is a bit lighter than their 2009. It has nectarine-like fruit but the finish is a bit short. Needs a bit more acid to balance it.
Distinctly different from other WA state Rieslings. Rich with a great perfumy nose. Outstanding fruit but age is starting to reduce it now.
Served slightly chilled. This wine had delicious fruit flavors of pear and melon. Light-bodied and crisp with a balanced acidity that lends great definition to the fruit flavors in this wine. This is a very good riesling made in a style that is reminiscent to me of German rieslings. Some American rieslings are much too sweet for my taste but that was not the case at all with this wine. Great quality to price ratio. Recommended.
What a value! Normally found here in the Seattle, WA area for less than $10 per bottle. Apricot notes and a clean light finish characterized this wine.
A little to sweet for me, but very good in comparison to other Rieslings from the area
Off dry with a smokey apricot nose. A nice spritz of acidity keeps it balanced and there are flavors of lemon grass that leads to a rich, toasty, golden finish - lots of crystallized honey on the finish. Very nice for such a cheap wine. A little sweet on the finish for me, but in the mouth the acidity kept it from being flabby. Paired with Kung Pao Chicken - very nice too.
External Reviews for Columbia Winery Riesling Cellarmaster's
Juicy white fruit notes. Semi-sweet and lush, with bright peach and white flower aromatics. Great with cupcakes or spicy Thai dishes.
An unapologetically sweet Riesling that will become one of your favorites over the next few months for parties and cookouts. Aromatic, with floral, honey and apricot notes; try this with grilled pork chops and hot, spicy mustard.
Columbia Winery produces an extensive selection of varietals. Originally started by a group of college professors, Columbia has grown beyond domestic production, to distribution in various countries throughout the world.
A delightful example of sweet Washington Riesling. Rich with pear apricot and honey flavors. This little wine is sweet enough to have with dessert or serve it chilled on a hot summer evening.
Light straw in color, this Riesling offers floral aromas of honeysuckle and peach blossom. Flavors of peaches, tropical fruit and freshly squeezed lime juice with zippy natural acidity and a slight spritz from retained carbon dioxide make the aromas jump out of the glass. - WineryWinemaker: Kerry NortonAlcohol: 10%Total Acidity: 10.5/LpH: 2.9Residual Sugar: 60 g/L ** SOLD OUT **
Perfectly captures the bright apple/pear fruit, succulent sweetness and fresh acids of Columbia Valley Riesling. Always a fine value, but in this spectacular vintage it ramps it up am extra notch or two of flavor.
Fruit salad and a touch of honey on the nose. Fresh, moderately sweet and juicy, with lively, fairly intense fruit salad flavors. Simple but attractive, and a bit less sweet on the aftertaste.
