External Reviews for Pacific Rim Riesling Columbia Valley
Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Simple, straightforward, slightly peachy fruit is the essential and largely singular theme of this medium-sweet wine, and, if clean and balanced by rather obvious, not-quite-integrated acid, it still somehow lacks the crystal-clear focus that is expected of top-drawer Riesling. That said, it is a likeable wine, and, given its age, it has time on its hands and every likelihood of knitting together and rounding into fitter form.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. While there seems to be considerable reluctance on the part of many Riesling producers to pursue sweeter Rieslings, this lovely wine reminds that sugar is no sin when balanced by acidity and married to fruit, and we only wish there were more like it. Long on well-defined peaches and pears with flowery top notes and a hint of honey, it is luscious and sweet but never becomes the least bit cloying, and it is nothing less than a bonafide bargain.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now.

This ripe Riesling was chosen the number one Best Buy white wine of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. From Columbia Valley which has made a name for itself with Riesling this wine was originally produced by Bonny Doon and is now its own brand. Matching up beautifully with Asian cuisine this off-dry white is zesty and succulent. It scores 92 points and the review states "A classic Washington tasting-room Riesling—only better. Opulent and fruity, with apricots, star anise, mint, a very nice spicy streak that lifts it up, and adds a lot of complexity. Smooth and supple, it coats the palate, captures some floral highlights, even a bit of marshmallow."
