This tart and spicy Riesling captures the classic tension between sugar and acid that makes Washington the epicenter for the grape in America. It's got spicy green apple and pear fruit, with an underlay of wet stone and citrus rind. Bracing despite its 1.6% residual sugar, it offers excellent value.
