Glasses ready?! Here are some of my favorite wines that I enjoy!
2008 Kiona Riesling
Tasting Notes – A slightly spicy finish puts an exclamation point on the end of this delightfully charming and drinkable wine. The nose has compelling floral notes that highlight the fresh fruit flavors of pear and citrus on the palate.
2010 Dry Riesling Columbia Valley
Tasting Notes- “The Chateau Ste. Michelle Dry Riesling is a dry, crisp, refreshing style of Riesling with beautiful fruit flavors, crisp acidity and an elegant finish. It exudes beautiful white peach and floral aromas with a clean finish. This is an incredibly versatile food wine and my favorite with oysters.”
2010 Riesling Columbia Valley
Tasting Notes- “Our Columbia Valley Riesling is a blend of Riesling from throughout Washington’s Columbia Valley. We craft it to be a refreshing, off-dry Riesling vintage after vintage. The wine delivers sweet lime and peach character with subtle mineral notes. This is our “every day Riesling” that is a pleasure to drink and easy to match with a variety of foods.”
2010 Harvest Select Riesling Columbia Valley
Tasting Notes-“This second vintage of our Harvest Select Riesling is made in a slightly sweeter style than our “Columbia Valley Riesling” but still shows the elements of classic Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling. It offers beautiful crisp Washington Riesling character with rich flavors of ripe peaches and apricot. The fresh fruit and decadent character is balanced with crisp acidity to keep the wine in harmony. This is a perfect patio sipping wine or would be a great match with Thai food. Enjoy!”
2009 Gewurztraminer Columbia Valley
Tasting Notes-“A fan favorite, this Gewürztraminer is such an enjoyable wine with exuberant fruit and clove spice. This is a lush style of Gewürztraminer with a lot of floral character, yet it still maintains the grape’s natural crisp character. A touch of Muscat offers citrus notes and a deeper spice character. Try this wine with Thai food or any cuisine with a little “bite” to it.”
2009 Indian Wells Merlot Columbia Valley
“The Indian Wells Merlot offers ripe berry fruit aromas and jammy flavors typical of Wahluke Slope reds. This is a full bodied style of warm climate Merlot with a round, supple finish. We added Wahluke Slope syrah to enhance the mouthfeel and rich fruit character. I call this my pasta wine!”
2007 Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Merlot
“Wonderful plum, spice, currant and wild berry flavors. The soft tannins of this Bordeaux varietal carry these aromas and flavors to a long lingering finish – one that beckons for another sip, or better…a glass!”
2009 Columbia Crest Two Vines Merlot
Aromas of cola, cream soda and caramel lead to expressions of vanilla and strawberry jam on the smooth palate, flavors of spice round out the silky finish.
