19% residual sugar. Lychee's on the nose, followed by a great balance of glazed peaches, very flavorful. Some nice spice and good acidity throughout. Well priced - on sale for $20 when i saw it

    This is a very nice riesling. Pretty straight forward and not too complex. Its sweetness is perfectly balanced by it acidity. Apricots dominate the flavor but you will also find pineapple and papaya. Not as deep and flavorful as a mid market German Spatlese, but a great wine at its price point. This one is a real crowd pleaser among those that appreciate sweet wine

    Excellent wine for beginners. It's refreshing sweetness goes excellent with a meal. Just don't drink too much of this one, or you will hate rieslings for the rest of your natural life.

    My wife loves this wine, I will drink it with her from time to time, but preferr my reds to her sweet whites. She enjoys this all year round, excellent wine to drink with friends before, during and after dinner. She really enjoys it with fresh fruit.

    Rating: 83/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. More candied than fruity and never quite clear as to just what grape it might be made from, this poorly defined wine is undermined by ongoing bitterness that its very ample sugars are unable to hide.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

    Nicely perfumed with a musky/grapey scent, this low alcohol (10.4%) sweet Riesling is pleasant and clean, but a bit attenuated. It has plenty of sugary honey and some simple canned peach fruit, but stops there.

    Sweet, balanced with tart acidity, but not melded well enough to show the lemony apricot flavors to advantage. Drink now through 2006.

    Frankly sweet, but a nice balance keeps it from unctuousness, with delicate pear and mineral flavors, hinting at lime on the finish. No-quibble price invites a try. Drink now through 2005.

    You can't beat this price for a very good quality Washington Riesling from a reputable producer. This version is soft and sweet, with pretty pear, cream and peach flavors that linger on the gentle finish. Drink now.

    Off-dry, with a sweet edge to the pear flavors, nicely balanced with a citrusy tang. Drink now.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Wine Tasting Notes Floral, honeyed aroma with hints of apricot, pear and allspice. Rich and full-flavored fruit on the palate is balanced by clean, crisp acidity.
