Disappointing. Flat and lifeless. Palate really unfocused...starts off crisp, lean and mineral driven, with honeyed sweetness jumping in knocking everything out of whack. I expected more for the hype.

Peach/nectarine fruit with vivid acidity, vaguely floral on the nose and finishes with decent minerality. Excellent balance.

The light yellow '12 Charles Smith Riesling 'Kung Fu Girl' blows away the competition for this entry-level price point. Crisp aromatics, with a corresponding flavor profile, of white peach, lemony citrus, lychee and wet stone. Slightly sweet, but with a zippy acidity that keeps it clean and focused. Immensely drinkable!

Nice easy Riesling. Good for not wine drinkers and the wine drinkers can still manage.

I know this is a rerun (in pilot season, no less), but it's the best $10 wine I know. And a great pairing with chicken and noodles in peanut sauce.

This wonderful example of Washington Reisling begins with light citrus and honeysuckle notes on the nose. Lively acidty that's perfectly balanced with off-dry sweetness and allows flavors of pear and green apple to shine. Finishes with tinge of slate and minerality. The great bottle art is just a bonus!
