The acids in white wines of the 2008 vintage are superb; and the beautiful match of acids and sugars in many Washington Rieslings is nicely displayed here. The aromas are ripe and rich with a nice mix of floral, apple, stone fruit and light tropical fruit. Flavors evolve with pleasingly sweet hints of honey and tea; this feels like a wine that could age beautifully.
