    January 26, 2011 - Had a glass at a business dinner, so no formal notes. Mostly dry Riesling with lots of sweet stone fruit and quince flavors. Nice value. Willing to try again, especially at this price.

    August 23, 2010 - Very pleasant, lemons and sweet flowers, with layers of pear and apple. Sugars could be a little better integrated, so they play the role of a partner to the acids rather than a supporter of the overall wine structure. But the minerality is clearly WA fruit, and it's very fine. Much better than sub-$10 wine, but a steal at $10, drinks like a $14-16 bottle. Showing no issues with being 2008 vintage, perhaps even better.

    July 9, 2010 - Straightforward, but very pretty, offering generous aromas of white grape, peach, lemon, crushed stones and a whiff of petrol. Light bodied and relatively dry on the palate with pithy citrus, white peach, and petrol flavors. Nicely balanced; a very solid effort.

    June 11, 2010 - A really nice, simple Riesling for the price. Lots of flavor, quite forward in approach, if the acidity could keep up with the flavor this would be scored higher. That said this is a very tasty wine packed with nice flavor. A great wine at the price point.
