This may well be the best Riesling being made in Washington at the moment. Off-dry and very lightly carbonated, it explodes with a bouquet of flower flavors that hit you with lilac, citrus blossom, talcum powder and more. Lively and tight, the flavors gather strength and concentration as they move through a myriad of pretty fruits, finally resolving in a long, slightly honeyed finish. A masterful effort.
