Columbia Winery Riesling Columbia Valley 2008
Light fruity aroma, lovely mouth feel slightly sweet but not cloying. So far my favorite wine. Found at Sam's Club for under 6.00!
This is, BY FAR, the BEST Rielsling I have EVER had!!!
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.
External Reviews for Columbia Winery Riesling Columbia Valley
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.
Accomplished, but still lots of fun – just like you. Everything that's lovely about this wine is completely typical of the best Rieslings: honey flavors, apricot aromas, and perfect balancing acidity that makes it perfect alone or with food (even spicy Indian dishes).
Off-dry, with a sweet edge to the pear flavors, nicely balanced with a citrusy tang. Drink now.
Fresh apple, crushed stone, ginger and spices on the nose. Slightly sweet and supple, with the enticing peach and ginger flavors nicely framed by ripe, harmonious acidity. Round without being at all heavy. If only the winery's other offerings showed this sort of pliancy of texture.
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.
Sweet but balanced. The phenolic texture makes it less cloying as the pineapple and nectarine flavors linger. Drink now.
