Tight and chalky on the nose with faint aromas of white fruits, apples and flowers. Sweet on entry and rather viscous in the mouth this has some treale flavors early on the palate followed by peach jam and baked apple. rather soft in the mouth, this could use some more acid to liven things up a bit. There’s actually probably a good amount of acid here, just not enough to balance the sweetness which does support some attractive baked apple and orange marmalade flavours on the backend that pick up a hint of balsamic spice before ending rather quickly on the short and sweet finish. 83pts

Earthy and floral on the nose, recalling green tea. Huge acids right up front are brought into balance by the noticeable sugar. The fruit flavors of apricot, red apple peels and citron are intense yet cut with a fine mineral edge. The finish is long and quite firmly structured with an attractive brightness to the fruit. 92pts

Rather leafy on the nose with hints of dried herb leaves accenting the core of bitter melon and dried lime pith fruit. This is fairly sweet with a tense line of acidity helping to add a bit of lift on the palate. The flavors of peach and sweet baked apple appear on the palate with gentle lemon highlights from the acidity. The sweet, fruity character drives right through the fairly long finish where the acidity cruises out over the sugar to take control of the situation and leave the finish with a decisive citrus edge over hints of sweet peach and even a flash of cherry. This is a bit too sweet for my palate but is really quite lovely. 87pts

Quite a bit drier than the regular bottling, this had just a touch of sweetness, reminding me more of a Viognier than a Riesling. It was good, but I prefer just a touch more sweetness. Floral, with pineapple and honeydew melon flavors, but they seemed muted somehow, without the sweetness to accompany them.

Nice wine, but pretty sweet...nice sipper when cooking and used it to deglaze for sauces as well. Sweeter than I usually go but nice.

Semi-sweet, crisp, refreshing hints of pear and peach with a slight citrus finish. My favorite everyday wine.

The scents are powerful, forward and mixed - the winery calls them "fruit cocktail aromatics." At 10% alcohol, it's borderline dessert-level sweet; the acids prop it up just enough to keep the fruit from turning fat. This might pass for a California Riesling; it's done in the same ripe, forward, slightly sugary style.

Pale yellow. Fresh pear, green apple and lemon gelato on the nose, with dusty minerality emerging with aeration. Pliant orchard fruit flavors offer straightforward appeal, with good depth and gentle finishing lift. Has the sweetness to work with spicy foods but there's also good vivacity and precision.

This winery offers very solid wines at consumer-friendly prices, and the Riesling is no exception. Full-flavored with melon, apple and pear fruit, it is sweet, clean and refreshing, and for the price, there is no better Riesling in Oregon.

Soft and appealing, with peach and floral character that nestles into the off-dry finish. Drink now through 2013.

Sweet apple and pear scents rise off this winersquo;s creamy, ripe texture. for spicy Sichuan chicken.

This German-styled wine is semi-sweet and medium bodied. It has a refreshing blend of peach, citrus, pear and honeysuckle flavors. The finish is clean and crisp.

Bright and lively, this is jazzy with pear, peach, citrus and floral flavors, sweet but balanced with bracing acidity. Drink now through 2015.

Winemaker's Notes:

Great by itself, or try serving this wine with light, creamy pastas, chicken in brown mushroom sauce or seasonal fruit desserts like pineapple upside-down cake. Serve well chilled on the table and allow to warm in your glass for optimal enjoyment of aromas and flavor.
