Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Keenly defined pure Riesling fruit is the centerpiece of this very bright, slightly sweet offering, and touches of stones and fresh flowers afford the wine with a bit of real complexity. Still very young-seeming and quite long on the palate, this is one that is sure to keep well, and it should develop nicely for several years providing that its immediate charms can be resisted.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
Fresh and aromatic, this light-textured, off-dry Riesling delivers lots of apricot and pear fruit plus some floral and slate notes, all lingering on the generous finish. Drink now through 2012.
Lively and effusive for its pretty fruit and floral flavors, with a nice citrusy note to balance the slightly sweet finish.
Medium bodied with tropical fruit, pineapple, guava, and stone fruit; slight residual sugar on the finish. Thai food.
Round and easy-drinking, this pure varietal Riesling is centered on peach and apricot fruit flavors. It does not show a floral or mineral side, but does bring in some pleasing spice. It's very well balanced, classic Washington juice.
Lively and generous, with a tangy apple, apricot and mineral character that dances on and on as the flavors linger. Wallet-friendly Washington white. Drink now through 2005.
