Hogue Cellars Riesling Columbia Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

During the grape growing season, Eastern Washington boasts warm summer days followed by cool nights, ensuring that grapes ripen fully while retaining ample natural acidity. Even ripening gives Washington Riesling its trademark apricot and tangerine flavors. Our Riesling has fragrant aromas of apricot, peach, melon, lemon-lime, and a drizzle of honey. The flavors are a delicate blend of apricot and tangerine, with a pleasing mineral edge and crisp, refreshing acidity. Slightly sweet, this is the wine to serve with fresh spring rolls, spicy ahi curries or grilled halibut. Unlike many white wines, Rieslings can evolve and develop complexity with age. This vintage will continue to delight for three to five years if carefully cellared.

Good balance and very juicy, nice pressed-apple that lingers no the palette.

I don't know fancy words to describe wines, just think this one is juicy and reasonably sweet, very easy to drink. Should be a good choice for beginners.

Soft and generous, a gently sweet style with appealing apple, apricot and honey flavors that echo on the round, wide-open finish. Drink now.

This is Hoguersquo;s Red Label bottling, an off-dry table wine with slightly sugary flavors of sweet tea and oranges. A hint of a medicinal, vitamin pill flavor creeps into the finish.

Fresh and tangy, with lively acidity to balance the sweetness of the orange, orange blossom and pear flavors. Lingers nicely. Drink now through 2015.

This frisky riesling has plenty of forward juicy peach flavor, along with sweet apple and white grapes. An ideal aperitif wine.

From the Pacific Northwest, this golden late-harvest Riesling has a slightly sweet, rich, spicy style, offset by just the right amount of acidity. Enjoy as an apéritif or with light desserts.

Soft and frankly sweet, emphasizing apricot and baked apple flavors, finishing with hints of spice. Drink now through 2011.
