Poet's Leap Riesling0 Ratings
Wine & SpiritsRating: 92/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09. With each vintage Armin Diel, in his partnership with Long Shadows's Allen Shoup, is homing in on riesling expression from the Columbia Valley. The 2007, from estimable vineyard sources that include Wallula, Weinbau and Dionysus, is ripe and tropical, leading with peach accents and a wheaty scent of lees. The flavors are exuberant and fresh, the textures voluptuous, held to a lean contour by a firm, talc-like minerality that calls to mind Diel's home turf.
