    May 4, 2014 - Easy drinking Riesling. For the price ok but lacking complexity and mineral notes many of the simple German Rieslings in the same price range offer. Overall not a lot of Riesling characteristics. This is a fun wine to try/drink, kind of non-sparkling Moscato substitute. Drink now

    March 19, 2014 - Dry with decent acidity. Strong flavours of citrus and green apples. Simple quaffer but the contents of this bottle did not appear balanced. Short length.

    December 20, 2013 - Assez ordinaire.
    Nez discret, un peu de citron et de pommes, petrole aussi.
    En bouche, c'est plat, presque pas de fruit. Finale assez sucré et courte.

    December 16, 2013 - WA state really has some great choices for value Riesling. Dry, with citrus notes, apple and good acids. Nice simple sipper or food wine.

    December 13, 2013 - I hate to say it, but this wine is pretty bad. Initial taste showed an off-dry, slightly fizzy white with very little nose, and quick finish. I'd think the bottle is flawed, but the screw top closure kind of takes that out of the equation. Not sure what to say, except spend a little more and buy better wine. P.S. 95 points is slightly ridiculous....
