J. Bookwalter Riesling Columbia Valley Anecdote 2009

Member Review by shsim:

This was part of a local J.Bookwalter tasting. Smells of cantaloupe, papaya and bouquet. It was medium dry with tropical fruitiness. It had a metallic finish with residual sugar. For more on the tasting, please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/06/wine-encounter.html

Has a light appearance, but a slightly more predominant nose. It smells sugary and somewhat floral, which leads one to predict a strong sweet flavor, yet the palate is light a crisp with an acidic bite that got me right in the middle of the tongue. I would say this is a food wine, meant to be paired with some heavier cheeses, or creamy soup. Good afternoon sipper for a picnic.
