Taste/Description:  It feels so good to try to a wine from my favorite variety which is Riesling of course. Most Rieslings I’ve reviewed is light to medium on the alcohol. This one, checks in at 12.8% which is one of the highest I’ve seen. Grown in the cool climates of Washington State, on the nose, you get sweet apricot and tangerines. On the palate you get fruit notes of pear and citrus. Enjoy this chilled for the best experience. Excellent wine. 94/100pts
