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.

Balanced and extremely drinkable, slight fizz. Crisp green apple, grass, floral and light flavors present.

2012 Chateau Ste Michelle Dry Riesling. A little crisp and clean. A nicely done dry Riesling!

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

My new summer favorite wine! 👏 it goes well with oysters and fish. It's about $8-9 at Costco.

Sweetly yellow, kaleidoscopicly citrus, meant to be served on The Calypso before a dive in search of lost doubloons. Out of the corner of your eye, you see yourself in a mirror and think you're wearing a small black touque and a silver beard.

Loved the crisp taste and slight carbonation. Perfect with fish one night and risotto the next. Not too sweet but just sweet enough to want to drink all on its own or even as dessert;)
