Chateau Ste. Michelle is the oldest winery in Washington with some of the most mature vineyards in the Columbia Valley. Pale lemon with aromas of ripe stone fruits and honey blossom notes, very typical of Riesling. On the palate flavors of crisp apple and peach with honey notes, lively acidity that serves best with food. Medium finish ending with mineral notes. For $11, great value.

Cute! Peachie. Welcoming for the month of May and finally warmer temps. Floral and crisp. Bring on the seafood boil.

Initial tastes include but are not limited to cedar wood marinating in formaldehyde, sweat of a baboon sitting in a steam room next to a really awkward guy with peyronies syndrome, candied pickles. No tannins present however a slick layer of acidity makes this wine a joy when munching on pop corners in a bowl with stale tostitos. Highest quality producer ever.

Solid. Pale, yellow/green. Aromas of melon, citrus, luscious fruits. Quite sprizy on the palate, which helps balance the residual sugar. A good choice to pair with spicy foods. Drunken noodles tonight. Good value from @lastbottlewines
