More information on wine critics and ratings

Tasting Note: Dry, cool-climate Riesling from Washington State, crisp, refreshing and vibrating with citrus acidity, softened by a mouthful of apricots.

Food Matching: Ideal with crab, scallops, mild cheeses, spiced Asian dishes and Indian curries. The winemaker's personal recommendation is freshly shucked oysters.

Vineyard: Riesling fruit for the Dry Riesling comes from our best grower vineyards in the Columbia Valley. Sunny days and cool evening temperatures create ideal conditions for intense aroma and flavor development in the ripening grapes. Riesling grapes were picked under cool nighttime skies to preserve the variety’s bright, juicy style and retain the natural acidity.

Vinification: The winemaker hand selected particular lots of grapes to create this elegant, dry style of Riesling, while maintaining its beautiful fruit character. The wine underwent a cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve the freshness and bright fruit qualities of the grapes.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 88 Points (2018)
With notes of lemon zest and lime and a dry, angular cut to its acids, this offers plenty of zippy flavor at a bargain price. Best Buy

Wine Spectator (WS) : 89 Points (2017)
Lively and supple, with spirited lemon zest and grapefruit flavors that persist with fresh acidity.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 89 Points (2017)
The aromas pop, with notes of rubbed lime leaf, citrus, white peach and cut green apple. Sleek, bone-dry, Nestea Lemon Iced Tea flavors follow, with the finish sailing. This is always one of the best wine values on the shelf, and this vintage does not disappoint. Best Buy

The Columbia Valley Syrah is a soft, ripe Syrah with ripe berry fruit aromas and flavors with hints of vanilla and brown sugar spice. It was co-fermented with Viognier for an even more accessible and fruit forward style of Syrah. This is an enjoyable red.

"Aromas of black cherry, currant, and ripe black berries, together with subtle notes of espresso and vanilla in the nose. On the palate, this full bodied wine is rich with flavors of dark chocolate, black fruits, and a coconut spice which leads to a lingering silky finish" – Marcus Notaro, Winemaker
