Wine & Spirits(2007 Vintage) This is the mid-tier Riesling for Columbia Crest, a sensational wine that captures everything that is distinctive and noteworthy about Washington fruit. Fragrant and loaded with floral aromatics, it carries persistent orange blossom and lemon candy scents and flavors into a lush midpalate that touches on tropical papaya and mango. The off-dry residual sweetness plumps it up but is mostly masked by the natural acids, keeping this very food-friendly.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2007 Vintage) Enticing themes of juicy peaches and honey-suckle literally leap from the glass here, and the generous fruit-filled flavors that follow this wine's wholly seductive aromas do not disappoint. Medium-sweet and somewhat unctuous, but so keenly balanced as to be both quite spry and nicely refreshing, this very pleasant wine will make first-rate drinking with sweet-and-spicy Thai and Southeast Asian dishes. GOOD VALUE
