Fetzer Riesling California Valley Oaks 2011

External Review:

Bright apricots, apples, peaches - there's a bushel basket of flavorsand aromas in every glass. The wine is delicate, yet full and pairswonderfully well with spicy Thai or Asian foods, as well as traditionalholiday foods like baked ham or turkey. There's dried fruit and zesty lemon on the nose, with notes of lavender, jasmine and rose petal. As you taste, the crisp acid balances nicely in a well structured wine that offers peaches, pineapple and pear in a smooth, rich, mellow finish.Slightly sweet, but barely noticeable with the fruit-forward flavors.

Not bad! I like merlots best but for a Riesling, which is typically sweeter (at least to me), I did like this. Especially because it's cheap and actually pretty tasty. Nice to just sit and drink. Not pricey, so easy to drink a couple glasses and not feel like you drank your paycheck away.
