Chateau Ste. Michelle & Dr. Loosen 2016 XLC Dry Riesling (Columbia Valley (WA))

This is the inaugural release of this wine, made with extended lees contact in upright oak casks. Starting out reduced, it opens up to reveal aromas of slate, lemongrass, lemon, wilted flower and a whiff of diesel. Bone-dry, layered citrus and red-apple flavors follow, stretching out the finish. It's more interesting than successful. Sean P. Sullivan
