Alba 2005 Riesling (New Jersey)

Intense aromas of grapefruit and pineapple and flavors of tropical fruit and honey make this a pleasurable Riesling, but the sweetness on the palate tends to overpower. There's some raciness in the mouth which saves the wine from being a complete sugar bomb, and the flavors are enjoyable, but the wine lacks some degree of sophistication and finesse. Susan Kostrzewa
