Region: Columbia Valley, Washington

Before I go any further, I will say that this is a very smooth, crisp, and delightful Riesling. This vintage comes from the Evergreen Vineyard in the Eastern Washington Ancient Lakes region.  Even though Washington State was extremely hot in 2015, Evergreen was not subjected to that heat, so this Riesling showcases rich, ripe, aromas and flavors.  This wine has a brilliant light-golden color, aromas of green apple and honey, and flavors of green apple and lemon. 11.5% ABV. I don’t try many Rieslings, but this one was easy on the palate, with good acidity, and I would certainly enjoy it again.
